This Country stars leave lasting impression on the BAFTA red carpet

Arriving in style, dressed in an asymmetrical homage to Swindon Town Football Club, Daisy May Cooper wowed the red carpet at the 2018 Bafta TV awards, before taking home two awards for the hit mockumentary.

The BBC Three hit mockumentary won two awards for best scripted comedy and best female performance in a comedy programme. But it was perhaps Daisy May’s incredible choice of outfit which left the biggest impression on the red carpet.

Dressed in an asymmetrical red dress with a white sequin trim emblazoned with the Swindon Town Football Club crest and logo, Daisy May Cooper teamed the outfit with a pair of red stiletto heels, styled to look like football socks.

When receiving her award for best female performance in a comedy programme Daisy walked up to the stage barefoot with her shoes in hand, telling the audience: ‘I had to take my shoes off because I was in absolute agony! 10 quid from eBay these were!’

Standing alongside her brother and co-star Charlie May Cooper the pair also won an award for best scripted comedy for This Country, a mockumentary about the lives of two young people living in a Cotswold village.


Daisy’s dress was designed by Fiona Hesford, a designer based in Worthing; a friend of the Cooper family. The dress was inspired by a trapeze shaped dress that Daisy had found. The final product was completely hand-made in red, with both the Swindon logo and sequin detailing hand-stitched on to the design.
