Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell danced with host Dermot O'Leary on stage at the National Television Awards (NTAs). The presenter, who often opened the X Factor live episodes with a tongue-in-cheek jig, had reportedly spent hours practising their routine.
Darcey Bussell, Kimberley Walsh and Tess Daly picked up the award for best talent show, beating The X Factor, The Voice, Dancing On Ice and Britain's Got Talent. Last year, the BBC One show consistently beat its ITV rival in the Saturday night ratings battle.
X Factor judges Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger were in the audience at the NTAs. Their programme had won the talent show award for the last three years but lost out to Strictly Come Dancing.
Coronation Street picked up two awards. It beat rival EastEnders to be named best serial drama and Alan Halsall (second right) won best serial performance for his role as Tyrone Dobbs. Halsall has been involved in a long-running storyline where he suffers domestic abuse at the hands of his partner Kirsty Soames, played by Natalie Gumede.
EastEnders actor David Witts was named best newcomer. He plays Joey Branning in the BBC soap. Some of the audience booed when he mentioned his girlfriend during his acceptance speech. He replied: "You can't boo her, she's beautiful."
Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes (centre) holds the show's award for best drama. It beat Merlin, Doctor Who and Sherlock. He was joined by members of the cast including Hugh Bonneville (far left) who plays the Earl of Grantham.
Great British Bake Off judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry missed out on an award. They lost in the factual entertainment category to Paul O'Grady's For The Love Of Dogs. However, they did present I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! with the entertainment programme award.
Towie cast members James 'Arg' Argent, Joey Essex, Sam Faiers, Billie Faiers and Jessica Wright attended the ceremony. Their ITV2 show was nominated for entertainment programme but lost out to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
Keith Lemon lost out to Ant and Dec in the entertainment presenter category but still made an impact on the red carpet with his tasselled suit. As for Ant and Dec, the duo won the award for the 12th year in a row.
