Hannah Waddingham branded a 'legend' for 'iconic' reaction to losing out on BAFTAs win

Hannah Waddingham branded a 'legend' for 'iconic' reaction to losing out on BAFTAs win

Fans were obsessed with Hannah Waddingham's response

Hannah Waddingham has been branded a 'legend' for her 'iconic' reaction to losing out on a win at the TV BAFTAs.

The Ted Lasso star was up for two awards tonight (12 May) but, much to fans' disappointment, Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas lost out to Strictly Come Dancing in the Best Entertainment Programme category.

However, when the cameras panned to her - it's clear she already had her reaction prepared.

Quite literally having her response up her sleeve, Hannah took a swig from an incredible flask bracelet contraption and fans can't get enough of it.

One X user penned: "She may not have won the award but Hannah Waddingham just won in our hearts for best accessory."

A second chimed in: "Hannah Waddingham drinking a shot out of bracelet whilst Joe Lycett is dressed as Queen Elizabeth I in the background. ICONIC."

"HANNAH WADDINGHAM YOU DID NOT JUST DO THAT," exclaimed a third, while a fourth quipped: "Did Hannah Waddingham have a flask on her wrist ? Why is she the best?!"

Another added: "Hannah Waddingham drinking out her bracelet. ICON."

And a final user echoed: "Hannah Waddingham being meme of the year there."
