The managing director of Elstree Studios says he is "very proud" after two television shows filmed on-site were recognised.

BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing, which is shot at the studios in Borehamwood, picked up a BAFTA for best entertainment programme - the second time the show has won the award.

Judge Bruno Tonioli thanked Strictly viewers at the ceremony which was held virtually at the weekend.

Mr Tonioli said: "The biggest thank you goes to all of you, our viewers, without you we would not be here and we hope to keep you entertained and happy for many years to come."

Strictly Come Dancing, which is filmed on the George Lucas Stage 2, is set to return to Elstree Studios for the latest series later this year.

Meanwhile, Netflix and Left Bank Pictures’ The Crown has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards including the awards for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress for a Drama Series and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.

The Crown has been based at Elstree Studios since 2015 and Season 3 was released last November. The show will continue to be filmed in Borehamwood.

Elstree Studios’ managing director, Roger Morris, said: "We are very proud that the top UK entertainment show, Strictly Come Dancing and the top international drama series The Crown, are both made at Elstree Studios.

"They are just two of the numerous successful TV shows, dramas and feature films that have been made at Elstree Studios that over the years have won Oscars, BAFTAs and Emmys."
