Tomorrow night’s National Television Awards will crown top TV talent in a variety of categories, as voted for by the Great British public. The awards, hosted by Dermot O’Leary, are still a whole day away. In fact, there's still time to vote – especially in the Radio Times Top TV Detective Award.

Shameless? Yes, but go on.

However, the winners are already looking pretty clear, according to Twitter and analysis by the Virgin Media Hotlist.

Tweets mentioning the NTA nominees from the past year have been collected up, analysed and verified by the London School of Economics.

Taking into account the volume of tweets, sentiment (positive or negative) and viewing figures, each show has been given a score out of ten, and a list of Hotlist winners selected.

According to the results, Ant and Dec should be busy preparing their 13th Entertainment Presenter acceptance speech. With a score of 8.33 out of 10, their closest rival Graham Norton falls behind with just 6.

Doctor Who, aided by the popularity of the Christmas unveiling of new Doctor Peter Capaldi, should steal the Drama category title. The show boasts an 8 out of 10 against Downton Abbey’s 7.

Meanwhile, in the annual Soap battle, if Twitter is to be believed, Emmerdale will take the Serial Drama crown with a 6.67 just pushing out rival EastEnders with a 6.00 rating.

‘The Hotlist’ takes three different ways of interacting with TV programmes into consideration: viewing the show (whether it’s live or on-demand), engaging with the show socially (engagement) and passionately talking about the show proactively (sentiment). All three factors are weighted equally to create a figure out of ten. Sources include live viewing figures, Virgin Media On Demand, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
