Holly Willoughby has been missed again from the National Television Awards (NTAs) as she leads the snubs.

The Wylde Moon founder, 42, had been longlisted for the best TV presenter prize, alongside fellow This Morning hosts Alison Hammond, Dermot O’Leary, Rylan Clark and Martin Lewis, but only Alison and Martin made the cut.

Holly was also nowhere to be seen on the short-listed nominations fo the NTAs last year.

Alison and Martin will compete against Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who took the award for the 21st year in a row at last year’s ceremony, as well as The Traitors host Claudia Winkleman and The Chase’s Bradley Walsh.

Holly’s former This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield had also been longlisted for the award before admitting to lying about an affair with a runner and resigning from all ITV projects. He was also absent from the NTA category.

This Morning, however, is up in the daytime category despite MPs calling on ITV bosses to address claims of toxicity and bullying behind the scenes and the furore over the affair.

Elsewhere, Dame Deborah James and Paul O’Grady have been posthumously recognised in the nominations, with Dame Deborah named in the authored documentary category, for Bowelbabe In Her Own Words.

Dame Deborah set up the Bowelbabe cancer research fund, and died last year at the age of 40 after suffering bowel cancer.

O’Grady’s For The Love Of Dogs was listed in the factual entertainment category after the death of the TV presenter and comedian earlier this year.

It will compete against Clarkson’s Farm, Sort Your Life Out and The Martin Lewis Money Show Live.

Two shows presented by Ant and Dec are in the running for the Bruce Forsyth entertainment award – I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Saturday Night Takeaway.

The duo have announced they will be taking a break from the latter show after its 20th series in 2024.

Also in the running are Gogglebox and The Masked Singer, while Britain’s Got Talent, Strictly Come Dancing, The Great British Bake Off and The Great British Sewing Bee are nominated for best talent show.
