Cyril Nri has received a BAFTA nomination for his supporting role in the Channel 4 gay drama Cucumber, a role with one of the most powerful outcomes, which caused considerable distress to a number of viewers for Nri’s final episode.

His nomination marks the only recognition for the Russell T. Davies penned series, which aired in early 2015.

The series was Russell T. Davies’s first TV Drama to feature gay Manchester since the late nineties drama Queer As Folk.
