First published in Echo News

THE Only Way Is Essex is in the running to pick up a National Television Award.

The hit ITV2 show is nominated for the best entertainment programme award, against I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Alan Carr: Chatty Man and The Graham Norton Show.

Doctor Who and Sherlock will go head to head for two prizes at the awards this month.

The shows - both created by writer and producer Steven Moffat - will challenge for best drama, while stars Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch are in the running for best male actor.

Doctor Who is up for a third award as former assistant Karen Gillan, who bowed out as Amy Pond last year, is nominated for the best actress prize.

She competes against comedy star Miranda Hart for her role in Call The Midwife, Suranne Jones for Scott And Bailey and Sheridan Smith for Mrs Biggs.

Sherlock and Doctor Who line up against ITV's period hit Downton Abbey for the best drama prize, with the category completed by recently-axed fantasy series Merlin.

This is so crass it does not even deserve a comment in the comments section. I for one won't be wasting a second of my time time commenting on this worthless life sucking programme.
