BBC drama Killing Eve leads this year's Bafta Television Award nominations, with its stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer both up for best actress.

The show has 14 nominations for the main awards and the Bafta TV Craft Awards, which were announced together.

Hugh Grant's A Very English Scandal is next with 12.

Bodyguard's Keeley Hawes will go up against Comer and Oh for best actress - but there was no room on the best actor list for her co-star Richard Madden.

That's a big surprise given that he won the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama in January.

Bodyguard and Killing Eve are both up for best drama series, alongside BBC One's Informer and Sky Atlantic's Save Me.

Hawes is in the running for two trophies after also receiving a best supporting actress nomination for Mrs Wilson.

Grant is among the nominees for best actor, along with and Benedict Cumberbatch for Patrick Melrose, Chance Perdomo for Killed By My Debt and Lucian Msamati for Kiri.

On the best actress shortlist, Ruth Wilson is the final nominee for playing her own grandmother in Mrs Wilson.

The unstoppable Ant and Dec
Elsewhere, Ant and Dec are up for best entertainment performance and entertainment programme for Saturday Night Takeaway. Declan Donnelly had to finish presenting last year's series on his own after Ant McPartlin's drink-drive arrest last March.

At last year's ceremony, Dec accepted the entertainment programme prize for Britain's Got Talent on his own following Ant's crash.
