The moment Keeley Hawes’ character was assassinated in Bodyguard is in the running for Bafta’s top TV moment.

Home Secretary Julia Montague was killed off in a dramatic twist which shocked viewers of the hit BBC One drama.

Now it is up for Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment, the only gong at the TV Baftas to be voted for by viewers.

Another violent scene – when Eve (Sandra Oh) stabs Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in BBC drama Killing Eve – is also shortlisted for the award, for the most talked-about TV from 2018.

Peter Kay’s Car Share – The Finale –  is in the running for the moment in which Kayleigh (Sian Gibson) causes chaos after leaving the car, at a red light, to rescue a hedgehog on a dual carriageway.

Netflix makeover show Queer Eye has made the shortlist for the episode in which a lonely truck driver, Tom, completes his transformation.

It is recognised for the “craft behind its reality format” as well as an example of how TV can promote positivity, well-being and inclusivity”.

The civil rights-themed episode of Doctor Who, featuring Rosa Parks, could win for the way it “captured Rosa’s powerful act of defiance on a segregated bus”.

ITV soap Coronation Street completes the six-strong shortlist, for Weatherfield matriarch Gail’s (Helen Worth’s) moving monologue on the suicide of Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward).

The storyline helped spark a conversation on mental health, while a suicide prevention charity helpline, Papyrus, experienced its “busiest day ever” following the episode.

Blue Planet II scooped the award last year for the moving scene in which a mother pilot whale grieves for her dead calf.

David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer at Virgin Media, said: “This year’s incredibly strong list of nominees represent some of the biggest conversations of 2018 and prove that TV has never been better, or more popular.”

The full list of Bafta nominations is announced on Thursday.

The public vote opens today (Wednesday) at 8am at

and runs until May 1 at 5pm.

The Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards take place in London on May 12.
