Following its Christmas success, Mrs Brown's Boys will be hoping to win Best Comedy while actress Sheridan Smith is in the running for Best Drama Performance for her acclaimed turn in Cilla.

The Coronation Street cast will be attending the NTAs with heavy hearts after the sudden passing of actress Anne Kirkbride, who played Deirdre Barlow earlier this week.

William Roache, who plays Ken Barlow in the soap, will take to the stage to share fond memories of his co-star and speak about her lasting contribution. The cast will not walk the red carpet out of respect.

Hosted by Ant and Dec, tonight's ceremony begins on ITV at 7.30pm and takes place at London's O2 Arena.
