Great British Bake off is also up for numerous gongs at the annual bash...

X Factor judges
X Factor, Bake Off, Doctor Who and Downton Abbey lead the nominations for the 2013 National TV Awards.

Celebrating its 18th year, Dermot O'Leary returns to host this year's ceremony at London's O2 Arena.

Newcomers at the awards for this year include The Voice UK and The Great British Bake Off but the biggest battle is in the Talent Show category.

Simon Cowell's X Factor and Britain's Got Talent reignite their rivalry with Strictly Come Dancing and The Voice.

There will also be a special Landmark award in recognition of London 2012, celebrating the UK's greatest Olympics in over 100 years and honouring key members of the Olympic and Paralympic teams.

During the ceremony, viewers will be able to vote in the 'Serial Drama' category to crown either EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale or Hollyoaks the best soap.

The National TV Awards air live on January 23 on ITV. Fans can vote for their favourite shows now on the NTAs website.
