National Television Awards 2021: Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond land Best Presenter nods

National Television Awards 2021: Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond land Best Presenter nods – but This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield is SNUBBED

  • The annual awards show will return to London’s O2 Arena on September 9th, with Joel Dommett set to host for the first time


They’re one of TV’s most enduring partnerships.

But Phillip Schofield has been noticeably snubbed from this year’s National Television Awards, while his longtime co-host Holly Willoughby landed a nod for Best TV Presenter.

Nominations for this year’s ceremony were announced on Tuesday, with fellow This Morning Alison Hammond also recognised in the shortlist, ahead of the ceremony next month.

Holly and Alison will compete opposite veteran winners Ant and Dec, who have been nominated for a record 20th year in a row.

The duo have been longtime winners of the award ever since they first scooped the prize in 2002, but will face stiff competition from Holly and Alison this year.

Holly and Phil have continued to delight viewers with their on-screen antics while hosting This Morning during the Covid pandemic, while in September Alison took over as host of the show’s Friday edition alongside Dermot O’Leary.

Also nominated is Bradley Walsh for his work hosting The Chase, as well as Piers Morgan for his stint presenting Good Morning Britain before he quit the show back in March.

Once again This Morning has also been nominated for Best Daytime, and will compete opposite Loose Women, The Repair Shop and The Chase.

The mid-morning show has long dominated the category, winning for the past 10 years in a row.

The shortlist for the NTAs opened on Tuesday, and the public will be able to vote online until Thursday September 9. 

New host Joel Dommett recently said he is ‘honoured’ to have been selected to front the spectacle.

He said in a statement: ‘It’s a huge honour to be hosting the NTAs this year! It still feels like someone has made a wonderful error.

‘I really, really love TV and can’t wait to celebrate the best stuff from what’s been a very weird year or so.’

Earlier this year, it was announced the NTAs, which usually takes place in January, had been rescheduled for September 9, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kim said at the time: ‘The NTAs will return to The O2 London in September to mark the UK’s best, boldest and most beloved TV shows with a surprise-packed event – and we look forward to seeing you on the night for a celebration like no other.’

The National Television Awards 2021 airs Thursday 9th September at 7.30pm on ITV.
