This year's BAFTA nominations came in today (April 11), but one soap has got a right royal snubbing...

Poor old Coronation Street didn't get a nomination in the Soap & Continuing Drama category, with EastEnders, Emmerdale, Casualty and Hollyoaks all getting nods instead.

Last year, Corrie was nominated alongside EastEnders, Holby City and Emmerdale, which finally received a BAFTA nomination after missing out for the last two years.

Meanwhile, Hollyoaks has received only its second BAFTA nomination since 2003 – so where's Corrie at, guys?!

Leading the BAFTA pack this year is historical drama The Crown, with five nods, while close behind are dramas Happy Valley and Damilola, Our Loved Boy, and comedy Fleabag.

Elsewhere, Leading Actress nods go to Sarah Lancashire for Happy Valley, Claire Foy for The Crown, Jodie Comer for Thirteen and Nikki Amuka-Bird for NW.

Leading Actor nominations are for Adeel Akhtar (Murdered by My Father), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Hollow Crown), Babou Ceesay (Damilola, Our Loved Boy) and Robbie Coltrane (National Treasure).

Sue Perkins will host this year's BAFTA Television Awards at London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday, May 14.

Coronation Street airs on ITV.
