The nominations for the National Television Awards 2017 have been announced - with Bake Off, Strictly and X Factor all making the long list.
And as they prepare to part ways ahead of Bake Off's move to Channel 4, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are pitted against each other in the best judge category.
But the pair face stiff competition from Strictly's Len Goodman, who is hot favourite to claim the crown after his final stint on the show.
