Ant & Dec win Best Presenters for 22nd year in a row

Ant & Dec have managed to maintain their epic winning streak by securing the award for Best Presenter at the National Television Awards

The presenting duo are a fan favourite at the NTA awards, with various winners throughout the night making reference to their impressive winning streak every time they beat them in a category.

From Graham Norton to the cast of Channel 4's Gogglebox, Ant & Dec got special mention in their speeches, with Norton claiming the only reason he won 'Best Talk Show' is because Ant & Dec 'didn't have one'.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were previously long-listed for the category of best TV presenter, alongside fellow This Morning hosts including Alison Hammond, Dermot O'Leary, Rylan Clark and Martin Lewis.

Hammond and Lewis, however, were the only two who made the cut and competed against Ant & Dec as well as The Traitors host, Claudia Winkleman and The Chase's Bradley Walsh.

Ant and Dec win tonight marked their 22nd in a row.

"I can't believe that we are still getting away with this," Dec said as the pair went up to the stage to collect the award at the show hosted by Joel Dommett.

The 27th annual NTAs, which took place in October of last year, gave the pair the chance to make their winning streak officially old enough to drink in America.

Stephen Mulhern took to the stage to accept the award on Ant & Dec's behalf as at the time as the pair hadn't been able to attend the event, which is took place at OVO Arena Wembley in London, after announcing they had both contracted Covid. Trust the longtime best friends to even do that together.

In a post announcing their absence from the awards, Ant & Dec wrote at the time: "Sadly, it’s true… We even get ill together! After feeling unwell a few days ago we both tested and we’re positive for Covid. We’re resting up at home and are so sorry we can’t be at #NTAs2022. Best of luck everyone and get well soon to anyone else in the same boat x."

As well as being nominated for their presenting, Ant & Dec were given the chance to scoop up awards in the entertainment show category for both Saturday Night Takeaway and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, as well as best talent show for Britain's Got Talent.
