BBC1’s Doctor Foster, which stars Suranne Jones, has continued its winning streak by claiming best TV drama at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

The 37-year-old actress, who plays a GP with suspicions that her husband is having an affair in the drama, said it was a special award because it felt like recognition for the whole team.

Holding the trophy aloft, the actress, who first became a household name as Karen McDonald in Coronation Street, said: “We’re going to take it and love it and look at it and hopefully produce a Doctor Foster two with as much love and care.”
