Poldark is up against The Great British Bake Off for the Radio Times Audience Award at the Baftas TV ceremony.

More than 15 million people tuned in to see the remake of the 1970s series centred on the life of Ross Poldark, played by Irish heartthrob Aidan Turner.

The BBC's period drama and baking talent series are among the shortlist of six nominated 2015 programmes. This is the only award to be voted for by the British public. Others in the shortlist include the BBC drama Doctor Foster; Channel 4's Humans; Peter Kay's Car Share, which was shown first on BBC iPlayer, and Netflix's Making A Murderer.

The winner will be announced at the Baftas on May 8.
