David Tennant has been nominated for a National Television Award for his performance in Doctor Who.

Presenters Ant and Dec are also up for three awards, including presenters of the year - a prize they have won eight times in a row.

Two of their shows, I'm a Celebrity and Saturday Night Takeaway, are competing against each other in the same category.

The prizes are decided by public vote and will be awarded in London's O2.

The awards will be presented on 20 January by X Factor host Dermot O'Leary.
