John Hurt films Doctor Who segment for The One Show to support Bafta Radio Times Audience Award

The Day of the Doctor star is among the celebrity advocates aiming to garner votes for their shows, which also include Breaking Bad, Broadchurch, Educating Yorkshire, Gogglebox and Great British Bake Off


The stars and celebrity fans of six of the biggest TV shows of last year will be appearing on tonight’s One Show in an attempt to grab viewers’ votes for this year’s Bafta Radio Times Audience Award.


The Day of the Doctor star John Hurt is filming a special segment for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode, while Gogglebox couple June and Leon will be live from Liverpool asking audiences to vote for the Channel 4 series.

In the studio, Educating Yorkshire’s Mr Burton, Musharaf and Ryan will make the case for their show, Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn will explain why she thinks it has the recipe for success, Broadchurch actor Joe Sims will play advocate for the ITV crime drama phenomenon and comedian and Breaking Bad superfan Omid Djalili will pitch for the only US show of the six.

The appeals will be peppered throughout tonight’s hour-long One Show special with Heat magazine’s TV editor Boyd Hilton introducing the segments.

The Radio Times Audience Award is the only award at the TV Baftas voted for by viewers.
