The production follows patriarch Thomas Shelby - originally played by BAFTA-winning actor Cillian Murphy in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders - and the Shelby family in post-war industrial Birmingham. This year’s BAFTA TV nominees and guests will also see Ella Eyre perform her new single ‘Ain’t No Love That Blind’ on stage for the first time.

For audiences outside of the UK, the awards will also be broadcast in North American on Britbox for the first time, as well as being simulcast on Britbox in Canada, South Africa, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway. Australian audiences will be able to view on BritBox on-demand. The ceremony can be viewed by New Zealand audiences on BBC Studios ANZ, and in 24 countries across Africa and the Middle East on AlThaqafeya and MBC Channels.
