The 2013 British Academy Television Awards take place this evening with TV coverage on the BBC.
Graham Norton hosts the annual ceremony celebrating the best of British TV, held at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
Actors and actresses hoping for a gong include Steve Coogan, Sienna Miller, Miranda Hart, Sheridan Smith, Alan Carr, Olivia Colman and Hugh Bonneville, while the entertainment performance category sees Graham himself competing against Ant and Dec, Sarah Millican and Alan Carr.
Among the programmes up for a prize are Homeland, Twenty Twelve, I’m a Celebrity, Parade’s End, Mrs Biggs, Accused, Scott & Bailey, Ripper Street, Last Tango in Halifax, London 2012 and the Paralympics.
One person sure of a gong, however, is a member of the Olympics presenting team, who is being given a special recognition award.
The British Academy Television Awards 2013 are on BBC One at 8pm tonight!
