This year, the RTS has introduced two new performance categories – Supporting Actor Male and Supporting Actor Female. 2023 will see Ambika Mod (This Is Going to Hurt), Saffron Hocking (Top Boy) and Adelayo Adedayo (The Responder) compete in the Female category with Adeel Akhtar (Sherwood), Stephen Walters (Anne) and Stephen Merchant (Four Lives) in the Male category.

The awards will be presented by returning host Tom Allen on Tuesday 28th March at London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.

Chair of the Awards, Kenton Allen, said: “It is incredibly important to champion the outstanding content being made in our industry from both established and up and coming talent. 2023 was another year of attention grabbing, thought provoking, world class television. The nominees announced today are a reflection of the remarkable strength of our UK creatives, and there is now the impossible task at hand of choosing winners for each of these highly competitive categories. I look forward to getting together later this month to celebrate everyone’s achievements and I’m delighted that my more talented distant cousin Tom Allen will be returning to host the ceremony again this year.”
