Ant and Dec at 2017's TV BAFTAs

The 'Saturday Night Takeaway' star was named on the official attendees list ahead of the prestigious event at London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday (13.05.18), but his co-host did not make the list, and he is not positioned next to Dec on the seating plan.

Backstage pictures inside the venue show photographs of the attendees on sticks and positioned on their TV BAFTAs seats.

Dec appears to be sandwiched in between Hollywood actress Thandie Newton and dancer Ashley Banjo at the star-studded ceremony, while 'X Factor' host Dermot O'Leary, 'Britain's Got Talent' judge Alesha Dixon and 'Doctor Who' star Jodie Whittaker are behind the trio.

'Blue Planet' host Sir David Attenborough, The Crown's Vanessa Kirby and 'BGT' judge Amanda Holden are in the row in front.

Ant - who has won 13 BAFTAs with Dec - was spotted looking "healthier and brighter" while out and about walking his pet pooch late last month, just weeks after he was convicted of drink-driving.

He was slapped with a record £86,000 fine and banned from the road for a year, and he admitted to having "alcohol and emotional issues".

While he may not be at Sunday's ceremony - which will celebrate the best of TV in the last 12 months - several other big names have confirmed their attendance, including Anna Friel, Michelle Keegan and Ed Balls.

John Motson and Kate Adie will also be in attendance at the ceremony - which will be hosted by Sue Perkins - to receive two top honours.

Legendary football commentator John will be handed the Special Award on the same day he performs his final ever 'Match of the Day' commentary.

He said: "It is such an honour to be given the Special Award by BAFTA at this year's ceremony, especially on the day of my last football commentary for 'Match of the Day'.

"I've had such a rewarding career and I'm looking forward to celebrating this award with colleagues, friends and family."

Kate will the BAFTA Fellowship, and admitted she feels "very honoured".
