Davina McCall, 53, celebrated with her Long Lost Family: Born Without Trace team as they won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Features. The team won the gong against the likes of Mortimer And Whitehouse: Gone Fishing, Big Zuu’s Big Eats and The Repair Shop.
Kirstie Allsopp, 49, took to Twitter to congratulate the show for their win, but admitted she was “bitter” to not be nominated.
She wrote: “Bitter as I am never to have been nominated in 20 years.(sic)
“I would have been thrilled to have been beaten by @ThisisDavina and this amazing show. Well deserved.”
Many of the star’s 423,000 followers flocked to her post to comment.
“When we started, it was a more innocent time.
“I don’t think I could have made the series if social media had been around then.”
On why she believes the Channel 4 show has been a success, she added: “What we’re telling is the story of people’s hopes and dreams.
“That’s why the programme has endured.”
