Miranda Hart has been nominated for four British Comedy Awards including Best Female TV Comic, Best TV Comedy Actress, People's Choice Award and Best Sitcom for 'Miranda'

Miranda Hart is leading the nominations at the British Comedy Awards.

The comedienne - who has received nods for Best Female TV Comic, Best TV Comedy Actress and the People's Choice Award, as well as her show 'Miranda' being recognised in the Best Sitcom category - will be looking to beat last year's success where she picked up three gongs.

However, Miranda faces stiff competition in the People's Choice category with David Mitchell, Graham Norton, Jack Whitehall, Jo Brand and Sarah Millican all nominated.

Jack Whitehall has received nods for Best Actor and King of Comedy while his show 'Fresh Meat' has been recognised in the Best New Comedy and Best Comedy Drama categories.

Meanwhile, TV Burp's Harry Hill is up for three awards, while 'Friday Night Dinner' has received four nominations, including Best New Comedy Programme and Best Sitcom with nods for its stars Tamsin Greig and Tom Rosenthal.

Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner also received nods for their roles as husband and wife in BBC One's 'Outnumbered'.

The winners will be announced during a two-hour ceremony on Friday (16.12.11) hosted by Jonathan Ross and broadcast live on Channel 4.
