TVBradley Walsh under fire for removing mask to ‘heckle’ Romesh Ranganathan after losing Bafta June 8, 2021June 8, 2021 Share0 https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2021/06/07/818083724125291534/480x270_MP4_818083724125291534.mp4 Bradley Walsh has been criticised by Bafta viewers for pulling down his mask to heckle Romesh Ranganathan during the award ceremony. Stars descended on the Royal Albert Hall for the awards on Sunday, with a strong list of celebs, including Jodie Comer and Billie Piper, walking the red carpet. I May Destroy You was one of the biggest winners of the night, taking the prize for mini-series, as well as leading actress for Michaela Coel. Bradley was up for an Entertainment Performance award alongside Romesh, Graham Norton, Claudia Winkleman, Adam Hills and David Mitchell. The Beat The Chasers host, 60, jokingly said ‘I can’t believe it,’ as Line Of Duty star Adrian Dunbar, 62, announced Romesh, 43, as the category winner. He then humorously ‘heckled’ Romesh as he walked up to receive the award for Ranganation, yelling ‘It’s a farce’ as the comedian took to the podium. Bradley divided Bafta viewers when he took off his mask (Picture: BBC) Romesh Ranganathan is crowned winner of Entertainment Performance (Picture: TIMMSY/BACKGRID) Romesh hilariously told Bradley to ‘shut up’, which sent the audience into laughter. Accepting the award Romesh said: ‘Wow thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to win, well there was a good chance… ‘It was much easier for me to do the show this series because I just had to do it from my garage. ‘In many ways I feel like I’ve put in less effort for more reward. That’s what life’s all about in showbiz.’ Michaela with one of her two Bafta TV awards (Picture: Scott Garfitt/Shutterstock for BAFTA) Once Romesh finished, Bradley moved his face mask down to whistle in support of the win, before again pretending to heckle him. He then mouthed ‘this is a joke’ down the camera, which was pointed right at him. While it was all meant in jest, some viewers weren’t happy with the fact that Bradley removed his mask to make the quips.
