Cold Feet will battle it out with Happy Valley in the drama category at this year’s National Television Awards.

Manchester-set Cold Feet made a triumphant comeback to ITV after 14 years last autumn, while the second series of Red Production Company-produced Happy Valley was watched by over nine million viewers last spring.

Casualty, Game Of Thrones and The Night Manager are the other nominees in the category.

Elsewhere in the nominations, three Northern soaps – Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks – will battle Eastenders in the serial drama category.

The 22nd annual National Television Awards are voted for by the public, with the ceremony itself taking place on January 25th at London’s O2 Arena.
