Quiz show QI won its first win at the National Television Awards last night.
We caught up with permanent panellist and star of the Stephen Fry-fronted show, Alan Davies.
“We’ve never won this prize and everyone’s really chuffed,” he told RadioTimes.com.
So why does he think this was the year QI came away victorious?
“Because Keith Lemon was not in the category this year,” joked the 46-year-old star, “and consequently they were left with four shows that were equally funny.”
As well as appearing in QI, Alan Davies will be returning to our TV screens as supernatural mystery-solver Jonathan Creek for a 90-minute Easter special.
“This one’s a really good one – it’s a really good mystery, it’s impossible to fathom,” said Alan. “You don’t quite know what’s going on and who you can trust. We’ve got Joanna Lumley and Rik Mayall and Sheridan Smith back in it so we’re doing well for actors.”
So will fans be treated to anymore Jonathan Creek? Another series perhaps?
“I don’t know about more episodes of Jonathan Creek – there may be. David Renwick’s got a bit of a twinkle in his eye and I think he’s enjoyed getting back to it and while BBC1 are keen on it, maybe we will do more…”
