Ant and Dec receive 15th RTS nomination

Ant and Dec have been nominated for the the Entertainment Performance prize at the Royal Television Society Programme Awards for the 15th time.

The comedic duo are set to battle against Adam Hills from 'The Last Leg' and 'A League of Their Own' panellist Jack Whitehall for the accolade 'Chatty Man' host Alan Carr took home last year at the RTS Awards this month, which honours actors, presenters, writers, programmes and the production teams.

Channel 4's 'This Is England '90' has two nominations, including one in the Drama Serial category.

But the show will face stiff competition from the likes of 'The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies' and 'Wolf Hall'.

'The Graham Norton Show' is in the running for the Entertainment Programme accolade for a third time, and Suranne Jones is up for the Female Actor gong for her role in 'Doctor Foster'.

She will be up against Claire Foy for her portrayal of Anne Boleyn in BBC Two's 'Wolf Hall'.

The winners will be announced at the ceremony , hosted by Richard Madeley, March 22 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
