Drama series Katie Morag celebrated two wins at the BAFTA Children’s awards last night.

Cherry Campbell picked up the best performer prize for her turn as the TV show’s titular character, making her the youngest ever BAFTA winner at nine years old.

The young actor scooped the award over Bernard Cribbins, who was nominated for his role in Old Jack’s Boat.

Katie Morag – which aired its first series on Cbeebies last year – also picked up the award for best drama, beating Rocket’s Island, Roy and Wolfblood.

Debbie Moon took home the best writer award for her work on Wolfblood, winning the prize over the writers for Katie Morag, The Amazing World of Gumball, and Roy.
