Adam Kay’s mini-series adaptation of his of his memoir, which starred Ben Whishaw, and the Stephen Merchant-created thriller are in the running for Best Drama and Best Comedy Drama respectively.

They are not the only British offerings in the shortlist for the 61st annual awards - which has recognised content from more than 30 countries, such as Australia, the US, France and Korea - with ‘EastEnders’ and ‘Casualty’ making it into the Best Soap category, and ‘Dinosaur: The Final Day with David Attenborough’ is also up for a gong.

Other UK offerings include Netflix’s LBGT teen series ‘Heartstopper’, comedy ‘Toast of Tinseltown’ with Matt Berry and comedic drama ‘Bloods’ starring Jane Horrocks and Samson Kayo.

BBC documentary series ‘Freddie Flintoff’s Field of Dreams’ - which sees the ex cricketer take the sport that made his name to a group of state school kids in Yorkshire - is up for Best Factual and Entertainment.

The virtual ceremony - which will take place in London on November 28th, and will be hosted by Alex Horne - has also recognised productions such as ‘Succession’, ‘The Great’, ‘Hacks’, ‘Borgen – Power and Glory’, ‘The Offer’ and ‘The Tinder Swindler’.

The chair of the judging panel, Mark Rowland, said: “In a record year, we’ve seen an unrivalled breadth of subjects and innovative creative approaches - with production standards higher than ever in all of the 30 countries whose broadcasters and producers entered shows. A huge thank you to everyone who entered - and many congratulations to the talented production teams who have reached this final stage.”

Jean Philip De Tender, Deputy Director General and the Director of Media, European Broadcasting Union, said: "These awards attract an exceptional level of talent and technical skills that make it so challenging to whittle down the entries to just six nominees in each category. It underlines for me that great content matters more than ever – telling a story and interpreting it with imagination and impact are the skills that really resonate with audiences. The creatives on our shortlist do this and more – each and every one has created something special and gives me real optimism that the future of programme making is in a very good place indeed.”
