Who, in the last 12 months, has got you hitting the record button on your remote so hard it now resembles your lipstick after the Christmas office party? Which show have you been DYING to watch the next episode of, EVEN WHILE YOU’RE WATCHING THE CURRENT EPISODE? How have you managed to contain your excitement seeing X Factor’s Jake Quickenden jump ship to I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! literally five minutes after he got famous?

Yes, it’s time for the National Television Awards – the NTAs if you’re into abbreviating – and WHAT a line-up we’ve got this year.

Join us on the night of Wednesday 21 January as heat goes behind the scenes at the NTAs – expect plenty of glossy pics as we peruse the red carpet fashion, lots of excitable live-tweeting over @heatworld and, above ALL else, a weirdly sexual pursuit of NTAs host Dermot O’Leary in his tight, tight trews.

GALLERY: TV Choice awards 2014 - all the best dressed on the night


TV Choice awards 2014 - best dressed

Brooke Vincent1 of 17

Brooke Vincent

Well hellooo fashionista! Corrie's Brooke looked super sleek in her shimmery two-piece with glossy locks and smoky eyes.

Charley Webb2 of 17

Charley Webb

Emmerdale's Charley looked fresh faced and pretty in her LBD and heels. Loving that GoT-inspo 'do, too.

Catherine Tyldesley3 of 17

Catherine Tyldesley

Another baby bump looking lovely in a stunning gown! Cath worked old school glamour with red lips and soft waves.

Andrea MacLean4 of 17

Andrea MacLean

Andrea proved the hard Tumble work has paid off, showing off her very toned fram in a mini playsuit and heels. Proper slick pose, too.

Georgie Thompson5 of 17

Georgie Thompson

TV presenter Georgie perfectly dressed her petite bod in a floor length noir gown. Not easy when you're mini but she pulled it off!

Chloe Sims6 of 17

Chloe Sims

Yes, it's OTT and almost too sparkly to look at but it's Chloe Sims, babes! We like the TOWIE gal's glam gown. So much more interesting than Lydia's boring beige number.

Gillian Taylforth7 of 17

Gillian Taylforth

We know Gill's frock is proper sparkly and looks a bit like a bauble but it's jazzy and we like it. She obvs does, too.

Jacqueline Jossa8 of 17

Jacqueline Jossa

We've already said it but she looks so good we'll say it again! Best dressed mini baby bump at the TV Choice Awards fo' sho'.

Jessica Wright9 of 17

Jessica Wright

Jess skipped the frothy ballgowns her fellow TOWIE pals wore in favour of a cool pleated leather midi and crop.

Kian Egan and Jodie Albert10 of 17

Kian Egan and Jodie Albert

Looking very much the minimal-glam couple in chic tailoring.

Lucy Pargeter11 of 17

Lucy Pargeter

We applaud Lucy's brave move, swerving sexy frocks for masculine tailoring. And with those legs, why not?

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan12 of 17

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan

Mich and Mark opted for elegant evening looks in black and white. Saving the sequins for Strictly, eh, Marky? And, erm, where's your jacket, mate?

Natalie Lowe13 of 17

Natalie Lowe

Strictly star Natalie was well at home in her glamorous gown, shimmying all over the place on the red carpet. Nothing popped out though. Bonus!

Nicky Sanderson14 of 17

Nicky Sanderson

Nikki's long frock brought a blast of colour to the party.

Patsy Kensit15 of 17

Patsy Kensit

Scary make up aside, Patsy's frock is actually alright.

Sair Khan16 of 17

Sair Khan

We loved Corrie's star Khan's bright coral midi. The neckline on the hot frock gave her look a cool nod to the 90s. And how glossy is you hair?! Well jell.

Charlotte Hawkins and Susannah Reid17 of 17

Charlotte Hawkins and Susannah Reid

A bit of a tricky one. We like Charlotte's golden cocktail dress but Reid's bright number looks like it's ruched all the way up her lady parts.
