Actor Idris Elba, 47, was awarded BAFTA’s 2020 Special award for his hard work as a actor, producer, director and musician at tonight’s virtual ceremony.

Accepting the award from home, the Luther star joked he thought he had won a Lifetime Achievement award instead.

Idris began by thanking his parents for their continued support over the years.

The actor went on to thank his wife Sabrina and his children, adding: “I couldn’t live without you.”

Addressing his confusion, he added, laughing: “When I first got this award I thought, ‘Wow It’s a bit too early for a Lifetime Achievement Award,’ I was wrong, it’s a special award and it is special.

“I appreciate it, I don’t believe I am very special.
