Elsewhere, The Night Manager will go up against the revived Cold Feet and the US phenomenon Game of Thrones for Best Drama.
The Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston will also be competing for the Best Dramatic Performance gong, alongside worthy competition Peaky Blinders‘ Cillian Murphy, Happy Valley‘s Sarah Lancashire and Victoria‘s Jenna Coleman.
And as always – Ant and Dec are up for Best Presenter.
