National Television Awards 2014 – the Twitter reaction #NTAs

Dermot O'Leary is at the helm once again for the NTAs. There'll be awards, speeches, jubilant winners... but it's live TV. So anything can happen. Emma Daly is capturing the thoughts of the Twittersphere...


The National Television Awards are upon us once again. Who will take home our very own Radio Times TV Detective award? Which soap will be victorious? Will host Dermot O’Leary dance…?


It’s a telly feast. 

While the action unfolds on screen, here’s a taste of what the Twittersphere has to say about the winners, speeches and all of the bits inbetween…
