Bafta nominees

Paul Merton has clocked up his 11th Bafta nomination, this time for his TV series on China. Paul Merton In China is a finallist for best factual series. His main show Have I Got News For You is also a finallist in Best Entertainment Show.

According to The Independent, John Willis, the chairman of the Bafta television committee, said: "It shows Paul Merton's versatility. It was a travel series, but with humour and humanity and clearly worked very well with the audience. It showed he had the range to move out of the Have I Got News For You studio."

Stephen Fry is also a finallist in Best entertainment performance for QI.

Let's hope we get three wins on April 20!
