'Strictly', 'Merlin': Digital Spy readers pick their NTA winners

By
Digital Spy readers have voted in their thousands on who they think should take home National TV Awards gongs this evening.

Over the past week we've been asking our users who they want to see triumph at the 18th NTAs in the 'Best Actor', 'Best Actress', 'Best Talent Show' and 'Best Drama' categories.

BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing was the popular choice in the 'Talent Show' category, picking up 38% of the vote. The show has lost out to The X Factor in recent years at the NTAs, but after winning the ratings battle in 2012, Bruce Forsyth and co may be in luck tonight.

Britain's Got Talent (20.4%) and The X Factor (23%) look likely to make up the strongest competition, while The Voice (14%) and Dancing on Ice (4%) are long-shot outsiders.

In the 'Best Drama' and 'Best Actor' categories, DS readers are hoping for an upset at the bookmakers with overwhelming support for fantasy series Merlin.

The BBC One show bowed out in 2012 and users want to see the programme and its leading actor Colin Morgan pick up NTA accolades. Morgan (56%) polled more than Benedict Cumberbatch (24%) and Matt Smith (16%), while Merlin (49%) is way out in front in the 'Drama' category, ahead of nearest rival Sherlock (21%) and Doctor Who (19%).

Karen Gillan is tipped to make it two awards in successive years in the 'Best Actress' category, getting more than 43% in our poll.

Miranda Hart picked up 34.9% for her role in Call the Midwife.

The National TV Awards air tonight (January 23) at 7.30pm on ITV.
