Ant And Dec Win Best Presenter At NTA For 19th Year Running
Ant and Dec have won best presenter at the National Television Awards for the 19th year running.
Yep, the comedy duo have absolutely dominated this category for the past two decades, winning every year since 2001.
This time around they fought off stiff competition from the likes of Phillip Schofield, Bradley Walsh, Holly Willoughby, and Graham Norton.
It's not been the easiest 18 months for the two Geordie lads, with Ant McPartlin only returning to the screen alongside Declan Donnelly during this year's series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
Ant missed the show last year - being replaced by Willoughby - in the wake of a drink-driving incident that took place at the start of 2018.
He pleaded guilty to the offence in court, receiving a 20-month driving ban and a fine of £86,000 - the highest-ever penalty for drink-driving in the UK.
In August 2018, he announced he would be taking a break from television duties to focus on his recovery.
Unsurprisingly, the lads' reunion was met with widespread support from fans, who came out in their thousands to celebrate.
Writing at the time, one person said: "Nice to have you back Ant. Dec is great and all that but we all know you're the funny one. #AntAndDecForever."
"YES! Welcome back Ant! Have fun you two! Can't wait to see you back on TV soon," posted a second.
While another commented: "You look a lot better, let's get ready to rumble and start again, have fun and behave, welcome back."
Earlier in the evening, Peaky Blinders won the award for Best Drama, beating off competition from the likes of Killing Eve and Line of Duty.
The drama, which stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Paul Anderson as members of the Shelby crime family based out of Birmingham in the early part of the 20th century, finished up a successful fifth season last year and takes the NTA Best Drama gong for the second year running.
It was announced last week that the BBC show - which was odds on to win with the bookies before tonight's gala event - has started pre-production on the sixth season.
