The National Television Awards 2018 are on their way: From the start time to nominations and voting info - here's all about the NTAs 2018
In 2018, the NTAs are paying tribute to the late, great Sir Bruce Forsyth by naming a major prize after him. Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, The Graham Norton Show, Celebrity Juice and All Round to Mrs Brown's have the honour of battling it out for the inaugural Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award.
A brand new category, Crime Drama, recognises a year when primetime mysteries became our favourite TV genre, and pits Line of Duty against Broadchurch, Little Boy Blue and Sherlock. Armchair detectives.
And can reigning champions Ant & Dec make it a jaw-dropping 17-year winning streak and retain their TV Presenter title? Stiff competition comes from ITV colleagues Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby who go head to head for the first time, but will fellow nominee Bradley Walsh win the chase before he takes a trip in the Tardis in the next series of Doctor Who?

You can see the full list of National Television Award nominations 2018 here.
The categories include TV Judge which hails the crucial role of iconic on-screen judges and looks like one of the most closely-fought awards. BGT’s David Walliams is pitted against his boss, talent show king Simon Cowell, while The Voice UK’s will.i.am and Bake-Off’s Paul Hollywood are also strong contenders.
It was a milestone series for The Great British Bake Off, which debuted on a new channel with a new-lookline-up. Can the sweet-toothed contest seal its big-money move’s success by pipping I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, MasterChef and Love Island to the Challenge Show prize?
