The National Television Awards (NTAs) have unveiled the contenders for 2019, with Jodie Whittaker and Richard Madden among the contenders.

The annual television awards ceremony revealed its long list of nominees in all 14 categories on Tuesday (16.09.18), with voting now officially open for all members of the public to decide who takes home the coveted trophies when the ceremony takes place at The O2 London on January 22 2019.

Leading the hopefuls is "Doctor Who" star Jodie Whittaker, who made her debut as the time travelling alien earlier this month, and will be making a bid for the Drama Performance award.

She'll face competition from Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes, who made the list for their performances on "Bodyguard", whilst Sandra Oh and Jodie Corner will also fight for the gong thanks to their roles in "Killing Eve".

Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw are up for the same gong for "A Very English Scandal", as are Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, who both starred in "Unforgotten".
