Charlie Cooper, Cirencester star of This Country, won the award for best male performance in a comedy at the BAFTAs on Sunday.

He joins his sister, Daisy May Cooper, who plays his cousin in the Northleach show and won best female performance in a comedy programme in 2018.

Their dad Paul Cooper, who plays Kerry’s father in the series, collected the BAFTA on Charlie’s behalf.

“Very honored to be able to receive this on behalf of Charlie, I know he liked me to thank the viewers at home.”

“Thank you so much and we’re so so proud of you Charlie, well done son,” he added.

Charlie Cooper was up against the likes of Reece Shearsmith, Inside No.9, and the late Paul Ritter, nominated for Friday Night Dinner.

Together Daisy May and Charlie Cooper wrote This Country, which follows cousins Kerry (Daisy May) and Kurtan (Charlie) in what the BBC described as their “very small, very boring Cotswold village.”
