CBBC show Shaun the Sheep has snapped up one of the top TV awards in the world, an International Emmy.

It won the prize for best show for children and young people when the trophies were handed out in New York in America on Monday night.

It wasn't just Shaun the Sheep that had a good night - programmes made in Britain took seven of the 10 awards.

The International Emmys are given to the best TV programmes that are made outside America.
