But it was to be a double win for the Geordie duo as their Saturday Night Takeaway also triumphed in the Most Popular Entertainment Programme category.

Speaking to ahead of the event at London’s O2 arena, Dec said: “The run’s got to come to an end at some point, I just hope it’s not tonight.’

Ant added: “We’re very fortunate that the public really enjoy what we do and we’re involved in those big event shows that viewers enjoy.”
