By

Voting for most of the categories closes at midday today, but the 'Serial Drama' category remains open throughout this evening's live NTA show.

Wade commented: "I really hope people vote. I think Emmerdale is really well deserved this year with the live episode, the 40th anniversary, and of course we've got Liam Fox up for 'Best Newcomer'. He's such a great guy and such a great actor. I really hope everyone votes."

The 33-year-old also discussed her own ongoing storyline, which sees Priya caught up in a love triangle with David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) and Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson).

She said: "It's all happening, isn't it? She's a bit of a scarlet woman in the village at the moment and getting the blame for everything.

"I love playing Priya. I'm quite defensive of Priya because I play her, so I sort of justify her in a way. I know the reasons behind things and everything - why she does things. I love playing her, she's great fun to play."

The National Television Awards air live on ITV tonight from 7.30pm.
