Famous faces aplenty flocked to the O2 Arena in London on Tuesday night for the 2020 National Television Awards.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on ITV from 7.30pm and The National Television Award nominees for this year, as well as Ant and Dec, include big dramas like Killing Eve and Peaky Blinders and Ru Paul's Drag Race UK, which is on the shortlist for the first time.

This year's Special Recognition Award recipient has been revealed as Sir Michael Palin, who will also be presented with his award on the night.

Celebs starting posing up a storm on the NTAs red carpet from late afternoon as photographers waited eagerly with their lenses poised. Backstage coverage presenters Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins were among the first to arrive, with Maura wearing a rather revealing gown with feathered accents, while Curtis looked very chiseled and suave in a tux as you can see in our red carpet gallery below.

Both showbiz newcomers and veterans flocked to the ceremony; soap stars like Coronation Street's Sally Dyvenor and Hollyoaks' Stephanie Wairing stepped out in style as did the likes of I'm A Celebrity's Caitlyn Jenner, Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page and the always fabulous, new Dancing on Ice judge John Barrowman.

Inside the ceremony, there will be a new host at the helm with David Walliams stepping into the presenting role previously occupied by Dermot O'Leary.
