NTA Awards 2022: Full shortlist from Strictly to Bridgerton as Ant and Dec lead nominees

We're just a few weeks away from the National Television Awards 2022, with the shortlist for each category having now been unveiled ahead of the ceremony next month.

It will be held at the OVO Arena in Wembley this year, with comedian and presenter Joel Dommett returning to host the annual celebration of TV talent on September 15.

The shortlist for the ceremony - which will be broadcast live on ITV - has now been announced so it's down to the public to vote for their favourites to decide the winners.

It's no surprise Ant and Dec are strong contenders with several nominations including being up for the TV Presenter award - which they have won at every NTAs since 2001.

Their 20-year winning streak in the category will end if fellow nominees Alison Hammond, Bradley Walsh or Graham Norton are voted winner of the presenting accolade.

The duo could also take to the stage if Britain's Got Talent, Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway or I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! are victorious at the ceremony.

Other shortlisted projects include the late Tom Parker 's documentary Inside My Head, Netflix 's Heartstopper as well as soap opera Neighbours, which ended last month.

Kate Garraway has been nominated for her Caring for Derek documentary (ITV)

Meanwhile, the private lives of well-known faces were revealed in the candid Authored Documentary category.

Inaugural winner Kate Garraway gave an update on her husband’s treatment in Caring for Derek, and Katie Price shared her son’s next chapter in What Harvey Did Next.

Plus, Julia Bradbury charted her medical journey in Breast Cancer & Me, while Paddy and Christine McGuinness shed light on disability in Our Family and Autism.

In the Drama Performance category Vicky McClure has been nominated for Trigger Point and will go head-to-head against Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders), Nicola Walker (The Split) and Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton in Bridgerton.
