Who is Alison up against?

There are plenty of famous faces Alison will have to beat to win the NTA for best TV presenter.

In fact, there are 51 nominees in total, so a very crowded field!

And while Alison clearly reckons Ant and Dec are top contenders for the crown, there are many popular stars up for the vote.

Also included among the line up of nominees is Alex Jones, Susanna Reid and Ashley Banjo.

Fellow This Morning presenters Dermot O’Leary, Phillip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are also in contention.

The nomination news comes after it was recently confirmed Alison and Dermot will be presenting This Morning next week.

The pairing usually host on Fridays after replacing Eamonn and Ruth in their former roles.

However, Ruth and Eamonn will not be on hand for half-term duties – to the disgruntlement of some fans.
