Bafta TV Awards – past winners: Ant & Dec

Ahead of this year's television awards we ask Ant & Dec – where do you keep your Baftas?


Winners of best entertainment performance 2010 for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!


Were you surprised when you won?

Dec: Very. We thought we were destined never to get one…

Had you prepared a speech?

Ant: We never do. Dec: It’s jinxing it a bit to prepare a speech. Ant: We like to keep it short and sweet and get off to the free bar.

Did you make the most of the free bar?

Ant: We did. We got a bit tipsy.

Dec: We ended up back at my house drinking champagne until the early hours.

Very rock ’n’ roll… did you smash any tellies?

Dec: Oh no, they’re fairly new. Not at my place.

Ant: You have to take your shoes off and everything.

Dec: I did drop a bottle of champagne on the floor.

Ant: Not in a rock ’n’ roll way.

Dec: No, it slipped out of my hand. I almost wept.

Where do you keep your Bafta?

Dec: mine is in my living room on a shelf.

Ant: I leave some awards up in Newcastle. Dec: With the family, just to let them know we’re getting on all right.

Which of your many awards meant the most?

Dec: I appreciate them all because they signify that people are still enjoying your work. The biggest shock was the first…

Ant: …best presenter at the National Television Awards. A proper grown-up award.


Dec: But it’s like trying to choose your favourite child — I love them all equally.
