Ant and Dec have done it again, winning their 15th National Television Award for best entertainment presenter.
That’s 15 in a row, their record sheet remaining clean and sparkly since 2001 (there was no ceremony in 2009).
The Geordie duo – who front a whole host of big entertainment formats from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! to Britain’s Got Talent – saw off new threats this year as the award was shifted from Entertainment Presenter to TV Presenter. That welcomed fellow duo and Bake Off hosts Mel & Sue into the list of nominees as well as first time nominee Rylan Clark (Big Brother’s Bit On The Side/ This Morning) and Graham Norton for his self-titled chat show.
But the powerhouse that is Ant and Dec just can’t be beaten.
Ant described last year’s fourteenth win as “ludicrous” with Dec joking to us: “It’s going to end one night, it didn’t end tonight.”
Now I guess all they have to decide is where to keep the new trophy from this year…
