The Only Way Is Essex stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge have been announced as presenters of this year's BAFTA YouTube Audience Award.

The reality stars will return to the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards to present the prize that they won as part of the ITV2 series last year.

The trophy is the only award that is voted for by the public, and has so far received over 100,000 votes, which is over 30,000 more votes than last year already.

A media panel of 15 TV and showbiz journalists - including Digital Spy - chose the six shows to be nominated for the award, which will now be voted for by the public.

The Only Way Is Essex stars have also filmed a short video about their hosting duties. They said: "It was such an honour to win last year's YouTube audience award and we're really excited to be presenting at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards this year, and of course bring a little Essex sparkle to the red carpet."

The nominated shows this year are Sherlock, Fresh Meat, Celebrity Juice, The Great British Bake Off, Educating Essex and Frozen Planet.

Fans can vote for their favourite from the list until 5pm on Thursday, May 24.

The TV BAFTAs will be hosted by Dara O'Briain at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday, May 27, and will air on BBC One.
