BBC One comedy Come Fly With Me, which is written by David Walliams and Matt Lucas, leads this year's Royal Television Society (RTS) craft awards.

The programme is up for best costume, best make-up, best original title music and best graphic design titles.

The comic duo also star in the show, based around a variety of colourful characters who work at an airport.

BBC Two's The Crimson Petal And The White, and Morecambe and Wise drama Eric And Ernie both got three nods.

They are both up for best costume design in drama, alongside Channel 4's gritty This Is England '86.

Psychological thriller The Crimson Petal And The White, which was based in Victorian London, was also shortlisted for best make-up design for drama and best production design.

Eric and Ernie, which told the backstory of comedians Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise, received a total three nods, including best make-up and best picture enhancement.

There were also nominations for Strictly Come Dancing's Halloween special, the sixth series of Dancing On Ice, The X Factor and The Hour.

The annual awards recognise the skills used behind the scenes in production, from costume design to digital effects.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony, which will take place at London's Savoy Hotel on 21 November and will be hosted by Myleene Klass.
