"Killing Eve" leads the BAFTA TV nominations with 14 nods.

The BBC drama has amassed the huge haul across the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards and the British Academy Television Craft Awards nods, both of which were announced today (28.03.19), including two for Leading Actress for the programme's stars Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh.

Jodie and Sandra - who play main characters Villanelle and Eve Polastri respectively - will face stiff competition from "Bodyguard" actress Keeley Hawes, and Mrs Wilson's Ruth Wilson in the category.

And "Killing Eve" will also do battle with "Bodyguard" for the Drama Series prize, alongside "Save Me" and "Informer".

Keeley could take home both Leading and Support Actress prizes on the night as she is also up for the latter alongside Billie Piper, Monica Dolan and Killing Eve's Fiona Shaw.

And "Save Me" and "Killing Eve" will continue to face off in the Writer: Drama category, with the BBC drama's Phoebe Waller-Bridge up against Lennie James.

If one of the pair scoop the gong, they will have to overcome "Patrick Melrose" scribe David Nicholls, and A Very English Scandal's Russell T. Davies.

Russell's show could also be a big winner on the night after the series picked up 12 nods, including one for Hugh Grant in the Leading Actor category. Benedict Cumberbatch, Chance Perdomo and Lucian Msamati are also up for the accolade.

What's more, Benedict's nod is one of six for "Patrick Melrose" across the TV and Craft nominations.

The show is also up for "Mini-Series" alongside familiar faces in "Kiri", "Mrs Wilson" and "A Very English Scandal".

Away from the drama, Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly received two nods.

One came in the Entertainment Performance category - against David Mitchell, Lee Mack, and Rachel Parris - and their show "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" is up against "Strictly Come Dancing", "Michael McIntyre's Big Show" and "Britain's Got Talent", which they co-host, for Entertainment Programme.

The BAFTA TV Awards will take place at London's Royal Festival Hall on May 12.
