I Talk Telly founder Elliot Gonzalez says: "It's been a tough year for everyone and when we all needed it the most, television was there to entertain. Despite production grinding to a halt in March, 2020 has produced some incredible programming which hasn't made my job of deciding this year's nominees any easier. But now I hand it over to the public to have their say. I can't wait to see who they choose!"

Voting closes at 11.59pm on Saturday 21st November and the winners will be announced on Sunday 6th December.
