EastEnders star Charlie Clements (Bradley Branning) told whatsontv.co.uk that he can’t quite believe how he’s progressed on the show.

Charlie, 20, was nominated as Most Popular Actor at the National TV Awards on Wednesday night, but he wasn’t expecting to win, like he did last year for Best Newcomer.

“I’m not confident,” he said on the red carpet. “David Tennant’s fantastic, so if he wins it, it won’t be a problem to lose to him. You know, he’s brilliant.”

Later, David Tennant did, as Charlie predicted, win the award, for his performance in Doctor Who.
