ITV and Indigo Television have decided to reschedule this year’s National Television Awards to respect the UK’s period of national mourning.
The ceremony will now take place on Thursday 13th October, live from the OVO Arena Wembley. It had been due to take place next week on 15th September at 7:30pm.
A date has yet to be set for the late Queen’s funeral but there have been many suggestions in the media that it could be on Monday 19 September.
Broadcasters are ripping up schedules following the monarch’s passing. Shows and events are also being rescheduled. Sky today moved its Boris Johnson drama This England by one week to late September. The UK Football Association today cancelled all Premier League and EFL soccer this weekend.
Line Of Duty and Coronation Street both had big nights at the 26th National Television Awards. BBC One’s crime drama and ITV’s long-running soap had the most nominations and walked away with wins in key categories.
