ITV breakfast show Daybreak has been nominated for a National TV award two weeks after its launch.

The show, which has received mixed reviews, is fronted by former One Show presenters Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley.

The pair will go up against their replacements Jason Manford and Alex Jones.

This Morning, BBC Breakfast and Loose Women are also up for magazine programme of the year.

Katie Price and her ex-husband Peter Andre will compete in the same category with their reality shows.

Price's ITV2 series What Katie Did Next and Peter Andre: The Next Chapter are both up for the digital choice prize.

Doctor Who and Sherlock have bagged two nominations apiece - including best drama and best drama performance for the show's leading actors Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch.

In the most popular talent show category, The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, Britain's Got Talent, Dancing On Ice and Don't Stop Believing have all been nominated.

Coronation Street, EastEnders, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale are up for serial drama.

And Jonathan Ross is up for the most popular entertainment award for Friday Night With Jonathan Ross - which ended in July after a nine-year run.

Ross is in the running against Piers Morgan's Life Stories and Ant and Dec's Push The Button.

The 16th annual National Television Awards, hosted by Dermot O'Leary at the O2 Arena, takes place on 26 January and viewers can vote now online.
