Peter Capaldi in Thick Of It at comedy awards
Peter Capaldi and Rebecca Front shared the glory at the British Comedy Awards.
Scots-born Capaldi was named Best TV Comedy Actor for his role as Malcolm Tucker in The Thick Of It, while Front won the Best TV Comedy Actress award for her portrayal of Nicola Murray in the political satire.
Her success meant there was no win for Olivia Colman, who was nominated in the category for two different roles - in Olympic satire Twenty Twelve and the sitcom Rev.
Capaldi saw off competition from Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville, who got a nod for his Twenty Twelve role, along with Tom Hollander for Rev and Steve Coogan.
