While fans of Outrageous Fortune prequel Westside wait for its second season to air, one of the show's stars has stopped by Las Vegas to pick up an international award.

Westside has been given a Gold World Medal at the New York Festivals International TV and Film Awards, a competition which honours programmes from over 50 countries.

And actor David de Lautour, who plays Ted West on the show, happily accepted the award on behalf of his colleagues.

Posting a photo to Instagram with the medal, de Lautour told fans he was "so very proud".

"Well done team! Can't wait for everyone to see season two!"



The second season of Westside is due to air later this year, with all of season one's main characters set to return.

Whereas the first season was set in the '70s, the second season takes place in 1981.

Antonia Prebble, who plays Rita West, told Spy last year that she was loving the '80s vibe.

"I am a child of the '80s and I absolutely love the aesthetic of that era. As you can imagine with the Wests, there's loads of leather, lace and leopard print!"
