British actress Olivia Colman will battle her Tv co-star Anne-Marie Duff for a prize at the U.K.'s upcoming Royal Television Society Programme Awards after they both landed nominations in the same category.

The pair's appearance in the second series of Bbc drama Accused earned them both a Best Actress nomination, while Sheridan Smith joins them in the category for playing the wife of Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs in Mrs Biggs.

Sean Bean has landed a nod in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of a transvestite in Accused, and he faces competition from Lennie James (Line of Duty) and Oliver Lansley (Best Possible Taste: The Kenny Everett Story).

Line of Duty is also tipped in the Best Drama Series category, alongside Call the Midwife and Benedict Cumberbatch's sleuth series Sherlock.

In the international category, Lena Dunham's Girls goes up against thriller Homeland and Danish political drama Borgen.

The awards will be handed out at a ceremony in London on 19 March (13).
