She said in her speech: ‘This is so surreal. Congratulations to all the other nominees, this feels like an outer body experience. I haven’t prepared so I don’t know what to say. But I stand with Ukraine and the Russian people. I want to tank my partner and my mum!’

EastEnders has been snubbed in the soap category at the BAFTA TV Awards.

The BBC show failed to get a nod despite strong storylines, including Gray Atkins’ murders which have drawn in viewers throughout the year, however Holby City – which aired its final episode this week – did get a nod.

Hollyoaks was also snubbed in the Soaps category – which has been running on Channel 4 since 1995. Holby City is up against Casualty, Coronation Street and Emmerdale in the category.

Other notable snubs include an omission for Kate Garraway’s emotional documentary Caring For Derek.

GMB star Kate has made two moving documenatries over the past two years following her husband Derek’s battle with the ongoing effects of Covid.

Kate’s 2021 documentary Finding Derek won a BAFTA last year but her recent follow-up Caring for Derek, following the family’s adjustments after Derek returned home, failed to pick up a nod on Wednesday.

BBC favourite Line Of Duty also didn’t receive any nominations despite its popularity with viewers.

The sixth series finale, which aired in May 2021 was the most-watched episode of any drama (excluding soaps) since modern records began in 2002, with 12.8 million tuning in.

The second most viewed drama of the year, BBC1’s Vigil, did receive a nod in the Best Drama category but lead Suranne Jones was overlooked for a Leading Actress nomination.
