TV PROGRAMMES and addictive shows helped many of us get through lockdown.

Now, many of them are getting some well-deserved recognition and have been nominated for Bafta television awards.

There are actors from one Netflix series which eagle-eyed viewers will know has scenes filmed in Herefordshire.

Sex Education, a popular show on streaming service Netflix, tells the story of sex therapist Dr Jean Milburn, played by Gillian Anderson and her son Otis, played by Asa Butterfield.

The pair live in a picturesque chalet overlooking a river near the fictional place of Moordale, but the Scandinavian-style chalet is actually in Symonds Yat, near Ross-on-Wye.

Sterrett's Caravan Park, also in Symonds Yat, is named, but was not a filming location, in the Netflix series.

Monmouth and Tintern are also recognisable locations used throughout the past two series and likely to make an appearance in this newest iteration of the show.

Aimee Lou Wood, who plays Aimee Gibbs, has been nominated in the Female Performance In A Comedy Programme category.

She's up against co-star Emma Mackey, who plays Maeve Wiley, as well as four others including This County's Daisy May Cooper.

Ncuti Gatwa, also from Sex Education, has been nominated for Male Performance In A Comedy Programme.

He's also facing a This Country star, this time Charlie Cooper, and Paul Ritter, who recently died but was nominated for his performance in Channel 4 sitcom Friday Night Dinner.

Comedian Richard Ayoade is returning to host the Baftas for a second year, with the ceremony returning to a studio-based production.

2020's ceremony was broadcast live from behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, with nominees accepting their awards virtually.

The Baftas will broadcast as-live on BBC One on the evening of Sunday, June 6.
