The NTAs are back and it’s time to have your say on which stars and shows deserve a gong.
Everything from dancing dogs to twisty artificial intelligence has made the shortlist for this 21st instalment of the viewer-voted awards.
Oh yes, viewer voted. It’s all down to you. But you’ve got a tough job on your hands. Tennant takes on Turner, Broadchurch battles Doctor Who and Ant and Dec challenge themselves as Takeaway squares up to I’m A Celebrity.
There are new categories, too. TV presenter sees the hosts of factual programmes pitted against those of entertainment shows, which may actually (gasp) give fourteen-time winners Ant and Dec cause for concern. The ever-popular Graham Norton, the tour de force that is Mel and Sue and first-time nominee Rylan offer up the opposition.
Live Magazine Show also enters the frame, with BBC Breakfast, Loose Women, The One Show and This Morning locking horns.
As ever, titans of soap land go toe-to-toe with both EastEnders and Coronation Street’s live episodes competing. Plus, Peter Kay attempts to hold his ground with Car Share taking on returning big-hitters Benidorm, Birds of a Feather and Not Going Out.
