The winners of the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2023 have been announced, recognising the best television and radio of the last calendar year.

Two rounds of public voting throughout January saw the 351 new productions to air during the year whittled down to a shortlist of six in each of ten categories, with voters also asked to pick a single favourite Comedy Of The Year.

In their 18th year, the award winners this year are lead by the final series of BBC One sitcom Ghosts, which picks up both Best Returning TV Sitcom – for a third year running – and the overall Comedy Of The Year.

Catherine Tate’s British-Australian BBC comedy Queen Of Oz, following a disgraced member of the Royal Family who is sent Down Under, was voted Best New TV Sitcom.

Elsewhere, Taskmaster takes the title of Best TV Entertainment Show for a seventh time and Would I Lie To You? wins Best TV Panel Show for a seventh year running – its eleventh in total.

There were also prizes for Good Omens, Whatever Happened To Baby Jane Austen? (starring French & Saunders), The Unbelievable Truth and You’re Dead To Me.
