The 2020 National Television Awards shortlist has been revealed.

They’ve won the National Television Award for ‘Best Presenter’ for the past 18 years in a row, and now Ant and Dec could be crowned once more.

The Geordie Duo returned to our telly screens last year after Ant McPartlin took some time away from the spotlight to work on his addiction issues.

And after another successful stint on I’m A Celebrity, the stars will be going head-to-head with This Morning star Holly Willoughby.

The final round of voting for the NTA’s opens today (7 January 2020), with comedian David Walliams set to host the silver anniversary show, replacing veteran Dermott O’Leary.

Elsewhere, there's more good news for Ant & Dec, as Britain's Got Talent is among the nominees for Best Talent Show, up against Dancing On Ice, Strictly Come Dancing, and The Voice.

While I'm A Celeb is up for the The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award.

In the ‘Best New Drama’ category, Chernobyl, A Confession, Cleaning Up, Gentleman Jack and The Capture are all in the running.

TV favourites Killing Eve, Peaky Blinders, Line of Duty, Call the Midwife, and Casualty are also up for the gong for Best Drama.

Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson broke records with her BBC3 documentary ‘Odd One Out’, which saw the star explore online bullying and mental health.

And now it could be taking home an award for Best Factual Entertainment show, alongside Ambulance, Gogglebox, Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs and Gordon, Gino, and Fred: Road Trip.
