The 2014 National Television Awards will take place this evening, live on ITV.
Some of the biggest names on the small screen gather at the O2 in London for the annual ceremony celebrating the best of British TV over the past 12 months, as voted for by viewers.
This year, Olivia Colman and David Tennant (Broadchurch), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Idris Elba (Luther), Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK) and Suranne Jones (Scott & Bailey) battle it out in the new TV Detective category, and ratings hit The Great British Bake Off faces tough competition from Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs, Top Gear and An Idiot Abroad to scoop the Factual Entertainment trophy.
David Neilson and Julie Hesmondhalgh are nominated for Serial Drama Performance for their poignant scenes as Roy and Hayley in Coronation Street, while Ant and Dec will be hoping to pick up their 13th consecutive Entertainment Presenter award, beating rivals Keith Lemon, Alan Carr and Graham Norton, as well as the evening’s host Dermot O’Leary.
There’s also a spectacular opening number paying tribute to one of the year’s most talked-about shows.
