Does anyone know why the NTAs has been pushed back until April?

I imagine ITV are hoping that they can host it without social distancing by then. Does make me wonder how they'll do the BRITs.

Do ITV host it? Doesn't feel very independent - unless it isn't anyway?

It doesn't have to be independent, the NTAs were devised and commissioned by ITV as a way of honouring the programmes popular with the ITV audience. They're only supposed to be a bit of fun.

Holby City returns to BBC One on the 10th November.

I wonder how many weekly episodes they have now recorded for transmission, given their long break?

They restarted production at the end of July so they've likely built up enough episodes as it's usually 3-4 months between filming and transmission.

I imagine Casualty will return in January as it only started filming in early September and there isn't really room for it to start any sooner.

Well they recorded a Christmas episode around the middle of September so they must at least be at episodes due to go out in January, possibly the start of February by now.

Isn’t Holby returning with 40 minute long episodes rather than the full hour?

Yeah! First week it’s back, we have 2 EastEnders episodes back to back from 7:30 & then Holby from 8:15.
(EastEnders doubling up on Tuesday in Lieu of Friday as it is Children In Need)

Unsure on how scheduling will work normally though.

Little Mix pulled again tonight due to Boris.

Extended news and celebrity mastermind will fill the gap.
