The awards, broadcast on the BBC, have seen complaints flood in over social media after Richard called the winner of the Leading Actor category, Paul Mescal, a “b******.” Many are posing that the BAFTAs should not have included swearing words before 9pm and have taken to Twitter to express their surprise.

One viewer asked: “Is Richard allowed to say “b******” at 8:45pm on BBC One? #BAFTAS.”

Another said: “Hang on, did he say b****** on BBC One before 9pm? #BAFTAS.”

“Richard said Bastard before 9pm – disgraceful #BAFTAs,” a third added, posting laughing emojis along with the tweet.

A fourth wrote: “What an absolute b****** – Richard Ayoade. Legend. #Baftas.”

The Virgin Media BAFTA Television Awards is available to watch on the BBC iPlayer now.
