The stars of British TV are all heading to Greenwich tonight for the annual National Television Awards, hosted at London’s O2 Arena.
The red carpet will be rolled out for some of the most well known faces on TV in what will undoubtedly be a grand, with Ant and Dec, the casts of Killing Eve, Sex Education and the Voice and host David Walliams in attendance.
The 25th edition of the National Television Awards celebrates the most popular shows, presenters and actors/actresses of British TV.
Tune in if you want to root for your favourite show, presenter or actor/actress, the ceremony is being broadcast from Greenwich’s O2 Arena tonight (Tuesday 28 January) at 7:30pm.
Ant & Dec are up for their 19th consecutive title of best TV present, and Killing Eve is the favourite for the best drama, with Jodie Comer nominated for best drama performance alongside Peaky Blinders’ Cillian Murphy.
Jesy Nelson’s documentary about cyber bullying has been recognised with a nomination, as have Chernobyl, Fleabag and Mrs Brown’s Boys.

David Walliams will preside over the night’s events, which he admitted to the Press Association he was feeling a little nervous about.
“I haven’t got cold sweats or anything but I understand it is a tough gig. The biggest challenge is you are hosting at the O2, which is very hard.
“You have to play to the 10,000 people in the audience, the millions of people watching at home in their armchairs and then on top of that you have the whole of the television industry there too. So anyone and everyone you would want to impress to give you a job in the future will be sat there watching.”
Greenwich Police said they would also be providing duty officers in uniform and in plain clothing at the event tonight.
