The BAFTA TV Awards will take place tonight, hosted in a closed studio by Richard Ayoade.

The ceremony was originally set to take place on May 17, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tonight’s event will see nominees accept their awards virtually, and the socially-distanced show will be broadcast on BBC One from 7pm.

Although all winners will accept their awards via video link, some famous faces will appear in studio to present the awards – including Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones.
