'Broadchurch' has been nominated for a hat-trick of prizes at the TVChoice Awards 2013, with David Tennant and Olivia Colman up for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively

'Broadchurch' has been nominated for three prizes at the TVChoice Awards 2013.

The popular ITV murder mystery series is up for the Best New Drama accolade, and lead stars Olivia Colman and David Tennant - who played detectives Ellie Miller and Alec Hardy respectively - have been given nods for Best Actress and Best Actor.

Both will face tough stiff competition from 'Doctor Who' pair Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, and the BBC One sci-fi show will also be aiming to pull off a hat-trick of wins at the ceremony on September 9 by taking home the Best Drama Series prize.

But the long-running programme will have to overcome last year's New Drama winner 'Call the Midwife', as well as 'Waterloo Road' and 'Downton Abbey'.

The cast of 'Made in Chelsea' will be hoping to add to their BAFTA win earlier this year by landing the Best Reality Show prize ahead of '24 Hours In A&E', 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' and 'Peter Andre: My Life'.

What's more, 'EastEnders' have picked up six nods in the soap category. The show is up for Best Soap alongside 'Coronation Street', 'Emmerdale' and 'Hollyoaks', while Shane Richie (Alfie Moon) is nominated for Best Soap Actor and Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher) and Gillian Wright (Jean Slater) are prepared to do battle in the Best Soap Actress category.

David Witts and Khali Best - who play Joey Branning and Dexter Hartman respectively - complete the BBC One show's double hat-trick of nods after they were put forward for Best Soap Newcomer alongside Coronation Street's Marc Baylis (Rob Donovan) and Emmerdale's Laura Norton (Kerry Wyatt).

Comedian Ben Miller will host the spectacle, which is to take place at The Dorchester in London.
