Celebrities from the world of British television will walk the red carpet in London for the Bafta TV awards today.

Nicola Coughlan, Jodie Comer, and Ant and Dec are among those famous faces confirmed to be attending the star-studded event, which will take place at the Royal Festival Hall on Southbank.

Hosted by comedian Richard Ayoade, the ceremony will celebrate the best of British television across multiple awards.

Here’s everything you need to know about what time the awards kicks off and who has been nominated.

Who are the nominees for the Bafta TV Awards 2022?

Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin leads the nominations with an impressive 11 nods.

Stars Olly Alexander and Lydia West are both up for leading acting awards, with more nods for the supporting cast, director, and overall best mini-series.

Joining Olly in the leading actor category is Stephen Graham for his role in Help, Sean Bean for Time, David Thewlis for Landscapers, Hugh Quarshie for Stephen, and Samuel Adewunmi for You Don’t Know Me.

Meanwhile, Lydia is up against Jodie Comer (Help), Denise Gough (Too Close), Emily Watson (Too Close), Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown), and Niamh Algar (Deceit) for the leading actress gong.

There are also acting awards for female comedy performance, male comedy performance, and entertainment performance – the latter of which sees the late Sean Lock recognised for his hilarious work on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

In My Skin, Vigil, Manhunt: The Night Stalker, and Unforgotten are this year’s top choices for best drama series.

Elsewhere, Gogglebox faces off with Married At First Sight UK, The Dog House, and BBC Three hit RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in the reality and constructed factual category

Fans of recently-cancelled Holby City, which aired its last tear-jerking episode earlier this year, will also be pleased to see it’s up for best soap & continuing drama.

There’s also Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment award, voted for by the public, which will see Strictly Come Dancing’s Rose Ayling-Ellis up against Adele, Ant & Dec, and Netflix’s Squid Game.
