Easties To End Corrie Best Drama Reign
Best Factual Programme
Ant and Dec are expected to grab their whopping thirteenth award for Best Entertainment Presenter at the National TV Awards on Wednesday.
The much loved duo are odds on at 1/8 to continue their domination of the category. Keith Lemon (7/1), Dermot O’Leary (12/1) and Bradley Walsh (16/1) are also nominated but it doesn’t look like anyone can take down the legendary Ant and Dec.
Eastenders are 1/2 to reclaim the Best Serial Drama award having lost out to Coronation Street for the last three years running. It is close in the category however, with Coronation Street 7/4 to remain number one.
Eastenders could be set for more success on the night as Danny Dyer is also the 1/2 favourite to be awarded Best Serial Drama Performance for his portrayal of Mick Carter. Nikki Sanderson, who plays Maxine Minniver in Hollyoaks, is next the betting at 7/2. Danny Dyer’s co-star, Kelly Bright, is also up for the award but is priced at 11/2, with Emmerdale’s Verity Rushworth an 8/1 shot.
Strictly Come Dancing are tipped as the 1/5 hot favourites to continue their reign over X Factor in the Best Talent Show category. X Factor are installed at 5/2 and last won in 2012. Paul O Grady: For The Love Of Dogs (15/8) may have won Best Factual programme the last two years running but Gogglebox is the 10/11 frontrunner to steal the award this year.
This Morning is the clear favourite to hold onto the award for Best Daytime Show for another year at 8/13. Pointless is second favourite at 3/1, with The Chase and The Jeremy Kyle Show priced at 7/2 and 10/1 respectively.
Best Drama looks set to go to Sherlock at 4/9, with Cilla its main rival for the award at 10/3. Doctor Who won the award last year and is 4/1 to repeat the success. Downtown Abbey is the outsider at 10/1. It could be a clean sweep for Sherlock as Benedict Cumberbatch is the 4/5 favourite to win Best Actor with Sheridan Smith his nearest rival in the betting at 9/4.
