Ant and Dec have been nominated in the entertainment programme category

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have received a Bafta TV nomination for their show Saturday Night Takeaway.

It comes after Dec presented Saturday’s show by himself, after Ant was charged with drink driving.

They’ve been nominated for best entertainment programme, which also sees Britain’s Got Talent – another show fronted by the pair – nominated in the same category.

Line of Duty received the most nominations, with four in total.

One of those nominations – for must-see moment of 2017 – was announced on Tuesday. It is the only Bafta TV award voted for by the public.
