NTAs exclusive: Voting begins for the National Television Awards 2020 - nominations revealed!

NTAs 2020 nominations revealed

Who will you vote for in the National Television Awards (NTAs)? Here's all the voting details and who's been nominated...

The National Television Awards (NTAs) are soon upon us again, as the long-list voting begins today [Tuesday October 15], and there are some great battles among the many shows and stars vying for your votes.

One of the more interesting battles is a big Strictly sibling rivalry...that's because dance pro sisters Oti and Motsi Mabuse, both currently in Strictly Come Dancing, are up against each other for the TV Judge award, but for their respective shows, Oti for The Greatest Dancer and Motsi for Strictly Come Dancing. They'll be taking on David Walliams (Britain's Got Talent) and Alan Carr (Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK)....

In fact, comedy star David Walliams, who's already won an NTA award five times previously, could be presenting the TV Judge award to himself, as he's taking over from Dermot O’Leary as the new host of the National Television Awards, which will be shown live on ITV.

What’s on telly tonight? Our pick of the best shows on Tuesday 23rd January

Nicholas Cannon
TV Content Director on TV Times, What's On TV and TV & Satellite Week

I'm a huge fan of television so I really have found the perfect job, as I've been writing about TV shows, films and interviewing major television, film and sports stars for over 25 years. I'm currently TV Content Director on What's On TV, TV Times, TV and Satellite Week magazines plus Whattowatch.com. I previously worked on Woman and Woman's Own in the 1990s. Outside of work I swim every morning, support Charlton Athletic football club and get nostalgic about TV shows Cagney & Lacey, I Claudius, Dallas and Tenko. I'm totally on top of everything good coming up too.
