Did you know the BAFTA Television Awards are this Sunday? Or, to use its full title, the Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards. Ohhh yes, we’re the proud new sponsors of these prestigious Awards. No big deal. OK, it’s kind of a big deal. We’ve even got our own Award – Virgin TV’s Must-See Moment!
Voted for by the British public, this brand new gong rewards the biggest, most talked-about telly moment of last year. And the nominees are…
Snakes vs iguana chase (Planet Earth II)
Danny Dyer’s origins (Who Do You Think You Are?)
Ed Balls’ “Gangnam Style” (Strictly Come Dancing)
Urgent exit required (Line Of Duty)
Carpool Karaoke – Michelle Obama sings with Missy Elliot (The Late Late Show With James Corden)
