I Talk Telly.

Popular television blog I Talk Telly has announced the nominees for its 2018 awards.

Public voting is now open until Saturday 1st December, with winners due to be announced on Monday 10th.

The awards, now in their fourth year, are operated by the blog's founder and editor, Elliot Gonzalez.

Amongst comedy nominees in 24 categories are Katherine Ryan, Benidorm, The Chuckle Brothers, This Country, No Offence, London Hughes and Stephen Bailey.

Gonzalez says "I'm delighted to be bringing the I Talk Telly Awards back for a fourth year. I'm always overwhelmed at how they're received by readers, TV fans and talent. I love seeing who the public think should win and love how passionate some fans are on social media, encouraging others to vote.

"It's been another really strong year for television, which made the decision of who to nominate harder than any other year. Some categories were easier than others whilst some categories saw the list of nominees change a number times.

"But actually, my job is probably the easiest. It's now down to the readers to make the really difficult decision of who should win each category. I'm glad I can't vote because that's a decision I would not like to make!"
