E4's reality show, which centres on the love lives and dramas of Chelsea socialites, is up against An Idiot Abroad, The Young Apprentice and Don't Tell The Bride for the 'Reality And Constructed Factual' gong at this year's TV BAFTAs.
Watch our interview with Spencer Matthews, Ollie Locke and Louise Thompson below:
Speaking to DS at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards and Television Craft Awards nominations party, Locke said: "People don't know how hard we work. People may laugh and think it's silly that comment, but we really do work hard.
"It's real emotions. I've had two break-ups and come out as bi-sexual on national television. That's a pretty difficult situation, especially in front of millions of people."
Louise Thompson said: "We're being recognised in a category that suits what we do. I think we definitely deserve it."
Spencer Matthews added: "For the new category structured reality, we deserve a nomination.
"To put your life out there for everyone to see and have your emotions dragged all over the place by everyone... not everyone can do it."
The BAFTA Television Awards 2012 take place at the Royal Festival Hall at London's South Bank centre on Sunday, May 27.
