Guz Khan's comedy series Man Like Mobeen was the big winner at the Royal Television Society's Midlands Awards last night - bagging three wins for the Birmingham-based writer and actor.

Khan won Best Acting Performance (male), Outstanding New Talent and Best Writer (along with his co-writer Andy Milligan) awards.

Man Like Mobeen is based on a 29-year-old man from Small Heath, Birmingham, and his antics. It was recently commissioned for a second series by BBC2.

Writer Nisha Parti (pictured below), who bought the rights to and produced the one-off drama The Boy with the Topknot, was overjoyed after the BBC2 drama won Best Single Television Drama or Drama Series award. The drama is based on a book by writer Sathnam Sanghera on growing up in Wolverhampton.

Also celebrating last night was Balvinder Sidhu, who won the Journalist of the Year award. She reports for ITV News Central.

More than 300 people attended the awards ceremony, which was hosted by television presenter Trish Adudu, at Birmingham Town Hall.
