The actress, who plays Fleabag's sister Claire in the dark comedy series, picked up the award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme, but a golden face isn't the only statue she was presented with.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Clifford revealed that Waller-Bridge handed her the famous Godmother statue – you know, the bust that makes numerous appearances on the show after Fleabag nicks it from Olivia Colman's character – just moments after being awarded her BAFTA.
Sharing how she and Waller-Bridge planned to watch the virtual Virgin Media BAFTA Television Awards together, Clifford said: "We had to be in different buildings because there was sound feedback, so we broke into our friend's house down the road.
"So I was there and she stayed at her's, but we reunited after I won. She ran over and gave me the Godmother statue, so that was pretty special. We both have one."
Clifford's BAFTA is the only award Fleabag picked up during tonight's socially-distanced ceremony, with Waller-Bridge nominated in the same category as her co-star.
The show was also nominated for Best Scripted Comedy, but lost out to Stath Lets Flats.
The 2020 British Academy Television Awards aired on Friday (July 31) at 7pm on BBC One, hosted by Richard Ayoade.
