Geordie duo reunited to scoop 'shock' award

BBC Entertainment and Arts

It has been another golden year for Geordie duo Ant and Dec, who were named as best presenters for the 18th time in a row at the National Television Awards.

The award came as a surprise for the pair, following Ant's drink-drive conviction last year and subsequent absence from screens.

Ant appeared emotional describing the win as a "shock".

Bodyguard and Emmerdale were the biggest winners of the night, both taking home two awards.

I'm A Celebrity also came out on top, beating Love Island and Graham Norton to the best entertainment award.
