Bradley Walsh, host of The Chase and soon-to-be Doctor Who companion, sneaked onstage with the behind the scenes crew of the ITV show, for god knows what purpose. He was soon spotted, sporting a cheeky, boyish grin, by Holly.

“Bradley Walsh!” she cried, partway through an emotional speech in which she referred to co-host Phil as “one of my best friends”.

“What a devil!”

“Bradley Walsh is our new doctor,” she then joked. “He’s taking over sexual health, so if anyone’s got an issue, come and speak to Doctor Brad.”

Check out the speech below.

Walsh’s game show The Chase had also been nominated for the award, and though he had lost out to the ITV breakfast show, he was determined to get his moment on stage.
