Ant and Dec have been nominated once again at the National Television Awards.

And, to be honest with you, there's a good chance they'll take home the prize for best TV presenter - as they've won it for the last 16 years in a row.

They're nominated alongside Bradley Walsh, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in the category.

The NTAs will be broadcast by ITV on 23 January and presented by Dermot O'Leary.

The winners are entirely decided by the public vote.

Other nominees this year include The Great British Bake Off, which receives a nod for best challenge show after broadcasting its first season on Channel 4.

It faces competition from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, MasterChef and Love Island.

This year will also see the first recipient of the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award.

The entertainment category was renamed in honour of the late TV presenter, who died in August, aged 89.

Here's the shortlist in full:
