ANT & DEC have won the TV Presenter NTA Award for a 20th year in a row as Kate Garraway was in tears.
The TV presenter won the Authored Documentary gong at the National Television Awards after showing the world the behind the scenes side of Derek Draper’s heartbreaking coronavirus fight.
TV royalty were out in force at the O2 Arena with Holly Willoughby among the telly stars heading down the red carpet.
The This Morning presenter is up for yet more awards along with co-star Phillip Schofield in the biggest night of the year for British TV.

NO, SIR TREV DOESN’T EVER AGE
DID ANYONE JUST SEE MARTIN COMPSTON AND HIS WIFE HAVING A SMOOCH?
They shouldn’t be able to do that. It’s disgusting.
It’s against the rules of making us all very jealous.
MICHAEL SHEEN PRETENDS HE CAN’T PRONOUNCE DAVID ‘TENNANT’
“I don’t know how to say this: Is it Tennant? Ten-ant?”
The Sheen is really going to hit the fan if David wins.
And he’s won!
YES! ANT AND DEC WIN BEST PRESENTERS. AGAIN. TWO DECADES ON
Ah, 20 years of awards. Ant’s shaking. Dec’s gushing.
Joel’s wondering if he’ll ever be invited back.
WHY IS FRED BANGING ON ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER?
Get on with the show, Fred Sirieix.
No one cares how many GCSEs she’s got thanks. Even if she’s stood next to you. Cringe.
WILL ANT AND DEC BE TRIUMPHANT?!
Can they make it a 20 year run?
Let’s hope so. (Just to annoy Piers, eh?)
THIS MORNING HAVE WON. AGAIN.
I mean, well done Phil and Holly. For the 76th time. YAWN.
SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD GOES TO…
Line of Duty!
“We started as a wee show on BBC2…” says Martin Compston.
There’s a link-up with Adrian Dunbar in another awkward LIVE video.
“Who knows? We might be back…” they both say.
It’s coming back! It’s gospel.
ARE YOU AD-ING A LAUGH?
Viewers are not happy with the amount of advert breaks.
PIERS TWEETS KATE G
So he is watching? Or is he tweeting from the audience?
“IF YOU’RE STILL LIVING WITH THE SCARS, THE FIGHT GOES ON”
Kate Garraway has left everyone in tears. What a speech. What a woman.
AND KATE G WINS
Elton John is playing in the background. This is all too much.
Everyone’s in bits.
Kate Garraway needs to win this award. It won’t turn back time but at least it’s worth her trip to The O2.
IT’S AUTHORED DOC TIME
And here’s Davina.
“You’re live on ITV. Please do not swear!”
Old Big Brother reference there for you, guys.
IT’S THE NEWCOMER AWARD
And it’s Love Island’s Millie, Liam, Kaz and Liberty presenting.
Where are their bikinis?!
NEXT UP IT’S CAROLINE FLACK’S DOC AGAINST PAUL O’GRADY’S DOGS VS GINO, FRED & GORDON’S TRAVELS AND GOGGLEBOX
This is a weird combination.
And Gogglebox wins. Not a great choice, people.
IS JOEL DOMM-INATING THE STAGE?
Is it just me or is Joel making you feel a bit on edge?
His jokes are sinking faster than a vessel in Vigil.
PIERS OVER AND CAN’T SEE HIM
Has Piers Morgan even bothered to turn up?
Or is he at home playing with his Ant and Dec voodoo dolls?
At least they don’t talk back. Same size as the boys though.
AUTHORED DOCUMENTARY IS UP NEXT. WHO’S GOING HOME HAPPY?
The gloves are off. It’s a two-horse race between Kate Garraway and Katie Price, if you ask me.
Who do you want?
MULHERN’S LOST TWICE
You’d be gutted if you were him, wouldn’t you? Up for TWO awards in the same category and you don’t win.
Beat The Chaser? Beat The Presenter more like.
WHO’S GOING TO WIN THE GAMESHOW GONG?
McIntyre or Mulhern?
It’s Beat The Chasers. No Ms winning here.
IT’S A SIN WINS!
“That’s a surprise! Olly say something!”
They’ve dedicated it to those who we’ve ‘lost, loved, lived and who have learnt’.
What about La’d?
BEAR GRYLL’S LOOKING FIT AND DISHING OUT…
The gong for Normal People against Bridgerton, Des and It’s A Sin (firm fave).
It’s GOT TO BE Bridgerton, right? I put five shillings on it.
NO FEAR: THERE’S NO HOLLY & PHIL HANGOVER TOMORROW
They’ve got Friday off, haven’t they? No need to throw things at the tele.
RICKY GERVAIS KEEPS IT SHORT AND SWEET (ISH)
“Thank you to the audience for voting. You’re the reason I do this. Ok, it’s for the money. You’re the second reason I do this.”
Gotta love him.
