The nominations have been announced for this year’s National Television Awards (NTA), and SafeBettingSites.com have compiled exclusive early odds for each category below.

  • ITV breakfast show This Morning remains the strong favourite for the NTA’s Daytime award, even in the face of controversy surrounding Philip Schofield.
  • Louis Theroux’s latest releases see him tipped for the brand-new TV Interview award ahead of Piers Morgan.

Daytime NTA Award Odds

  1. This Morning  @EVS (Favourite)
  2. The Repair Shop @3/1
  3. The Chase @4/1
  4. Loose Women @6/1

2022 winners This Morning are once again favoured to scoop the Daytime award, even after months of controversy swirling around now-ex co-presenter Phillip Schofield.

The 61-year-old resigned from the show’s broadcaster ITV in May after admitting he had been embroiled in an “unwise but not illegal” relationship with a significantly younger male colleague.

ITV are now understood to be undertaking their own investigation into allegations of bullying behind the scenes at This Morning, but this hasn’t stopped the hugely popular show from being favoured for successive awards.

The show has already proven it can survive, and succeed, in the face of adversity after Scholfield and his now-former colleague Holly Willoughby were accused of skipping the line to see Queen Elizabeth lying in state.

TV Interview NTA Award Odds

  1. Louis Theroux Interviews @8/11 (Favourite)
  2. The Graham Norton Show @11/4
  3. The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show @6/1
  4. Piers Morgan Uncensored @8/1


Elsewhere, a new category for this year sees interviewers recognised for their efforts on TV.

Hugely popular documentary maker Louis Theroux is currently the frontrunner according to SafeBettingSites’ exclusive odds. 

Swapping his out-in-the-field filming style for a more personal one-on-one format, the multi-award winner interviewed some of the most iconic names in entertainment such as Rita Ora and Stormzy.

Piers Morgan’s Uncensored interview/chat-show hybrid looks set to be snubbed in the award’s maiden year according to odds above.

This Morning won the award in 2022 & the show doesn’t face tough competition with our trader putting it at EVENS to win on 5th of September.”
