X Factor judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will be going head-to-head at this year's National Television Awards (NTAs).

Cheryl and Simon will be up against David Walliams and Mary Berry in a new TV judge category.

The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice UK and Britain's Got Talent will do battle for best talent show.

But not so good news for actor Peter Capaldi who hasn't made the shortlist for top drama performance.

It's the first time the star of Doctor Who hasn't made the shortlist since the show was revived.

Best Talent Show will see a huge battle between Strictly Come Dancing, The X Factor, The Voice UK and Britain's Got Talent.

The NTAs are voted for by the public and the awards ceremony will take place on 21 January in London, presented by Dermot O'Leary.
