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.
