The ever-popular Geordie presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly won three awards at the National TV Awards on Wednesday.

Ant and Dec won Most Popular Reality Programme for I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Most Popular Entertainment Show for Saturday Night Takeaway and Most Popular Entertainment Presenter(s).

The pair are on their way to film the latest series of I’m A Celebrity in Australia, but accepted the awards by live link-up in Los Angeles.

They were profuse in their thanks for the public voting three times in their favour, not least because Saturday Night Takeaway was recently named as one of the ITV shows which had cheated phone-in voters out of their money.

The other winners at the 2007 National Television Awards at the Royal Albert Hall were…
