The 18th National Television Awards will be broadcast live from London's O2 arena tonight. Hosted by the only person you'd trust with a live show, that being Dermot O'Leary, the night honours some of the biggest stars of the small screen in the only TV awards ceremony voted for by the public. Ratings rivals Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor feature in the line-up for Britain's favourite talent show, while Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin and Downton Abbey battle it out to be named best drama. BBC stars Matt Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch and Colin Morgan are in the running for the most popular male performance, up against Daniel Mays from ITV1's Mrs Biggs. Dermot himself might also be taking home a trophy, but faces strong competition from fellow entertainment presenters Ant and Dec, Keith Lemon and Alan Carr.
