If you need some recommendations regarding what to watch on the telly, then who better to advise you than some of the stars at the BAFTA TV Awards? 

The celebs were out in force at the award ceremony at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Sunday (12th May), and virginradio.co.uk was on the red carpet to talk to them.

When asked what he was watching at the moment, Poldark’s Aidan Turner told virginradio.co.uk and other press that he has just finished Baby Reindeer. “I feel like everyone's watching that,” he said. “Slow Horses, I'm loving as well.”

Fred Sirieix from First Dates also praised Baby Reindeer, and the way it “takes you in different direction and you're really not sure where it started from and where it's going.”

He also enthused about the return of Emily in Paris. “I can't wait for this. I would have loved to have been able to act in Emily in Paris. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be this time, but maybe next year. Who knows?” he teased.

See what the Baggs family from Gogglebox recommended below:

Roisin Gallagher from The Lovers told us that she has enjoyed Bridget Christie’s The Change, while Slow Horses star Rosalind Eleazar said she is watching I'm watching Love Triangle on Channel 4. “It’s chaos. It's brilliant,” she said.

Presenter Ben Fogle told us he is watching The Traitors, while Dwayne Fields said: “I'm still stuck on Attenborough. That's what I go to. Anything outdoors, anything where I get to see or learn something new.”

Elsewhere on the red carpet, The Traitors' winner Harry Clark gave some surprising tactical advice to new contestants, and comedian Joe Lycett rocked up dressed as Elizabeth I after losing a bet.

Meanwhile, Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham's hip flask bracelet swig went viral. See it here.
