"This award is a true testament to the amazing support of the public," Morgan - who is currently shooting new BBC drama Quirke opposite Gabriel Byrne - said.

"It will always be a reminder for me of the love people have for the show, the great times I had, the hard work of everyone involved and how lucky I am to be doing what I'm doing."

Morgan went on to describe his win as a "tremendous honour".

"I want to send my huge appreciation to everyone who voted for me," he concluded.

Despite rumours that Merlin could be revived for a new movie trilogy, Morgan said following his awards win that he does not expect a film version to be produced in the near future.
