The awards were announced at the 2015 British Academy of Film and Television Arts ceremony in London on 10 May.

For the second year running there were two BAFTAs for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway: a win in the ever-competitive Entertainment Programme category and in Entertainment Performance for Ant and Dec themselves.
