The Only Way Is Essex won the YouTube Audience Award at the BAFTA TV Awards last year, but the ITV2 hit has been snubbed in the Reality And Constructed Factual category this year in favour of E4 rival Made In Chelsea.
The London-set show will compete against An Idiot Abroad, Don’t Tell The Bride and The Young Apprentice – but not The actual Apprentice – at the ceremony on May 27.
The candidates for the YouTube Audience Award are Celebrity Juice, Educating Essex (which has our vote!), Fresh Meat, Frozen Planet, The Great British Bake-Off and Sherlock.
The side-splitting Modern Family has earned itself an International Programme nod against The Slap, Borgen and Forbrydelsen; and Christmas No. 1 holders the Military Wives are up for Factual Series for The Choir, alongside Educating Essex, Our War and Protecting Our Children: Damned If We Do Damned If We Don’t.
Hollyoaks and Emmerdale were snubbed in favour of Holby City and Shameless for Soap And Continuing Drama, with Coronation Street and EastEnders both making the cut; and surprisingly there are no nominations for Doctor Who whatsoever in any categories.
