Channel 5 BAFTA Award - Cruising with Jane McDonald

Last night was a landmark night in Channel 5’s 21 year history, as the channel won its first ever BAFTA TV Award for 'Cruising with Jane McDonald' in the ‘Best Features’ category.


The BAFTAs are the most coveted awards in the industry calendar and this is a huge accolade and testament to the fantastic work by all at Channel 5.


Cruising with Jane McDonald is a hit show produced by our very own in-house production arm Elephant House Studios. The distinctive gold mask was collected by Jane herself and it was great to hear her highly commend Channel 5 and Elephant House Studios during the live show.


Congratulations to Ben Frow and all the teams on this truly historic win!
