The six nominees

The programmes in the running for the Best Entertainment prize at the Broadcast Awards 2021 all demonstrate the very best in British entertainment programming.

Strictly Come Dancing co-presenter Claudia Winkleman will front this year’s virtual ceremony, in a show that will feature a wealth of special guests and leading industry names from 6.30pm on 27 May.

The entertainment series shortlist is as follows:

Hat Trick Productions’ series for Dave stands out as a one of the few non-PSB entertainment programmes that punches above its weight.

With the successful return of co-host Ant McPartlin, series 19 of Lifted Entertainment’s reality juggernaut was another triumphant outing for ITV. 

The World of Wonder series for BBC3 saw contestants compete in weekly tasks to test their versatility and showmanship, - not to mention their elaborate costuming.

Strictly Come Dancing again earns its place for its spectacular live broadcast from the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool. Produced by BBC Studios.

Bandicoot Scotland’s guessing-game format raked in an audience of 8.4 million for its series finale on ITV, earning it a place as one of the top entertainment shows of 2020. 

Remarkable Television’s unpredictable format for BBC1 is loaded with jeopardy and suspense, and fronted by the popular Danny Dyer.
