Ant McPartlin Slams Claims He's Stressed Ahead Of NTA Awards

The presenter hit out at The Daily Star after the printed a story about him having a supposed meltdown ahead of his appearance at tonight's National Television Awards.

Ant and Dec made history at the National Television Awards last night, picking up three prizes, including best Challenge Show for I'm A Celebrity and the inaugural Sir Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award for Saturday Night Takeaway.

McPartlin said it felt "very, very apt" to pick up the award on Tuesday evening as the duo had just begun filming a tribute to Sir Bruce.

As well as Best Presenter, the pair are also up for Best Challenge Show for I'm A Celebrity.

This year's victor of that very same award was, of course, Ant & Dec. It's helped me get through. "I love you, man. Let's not cry".

Dec added: 'Thank you to everyone that took the time to vote for us, for ITV for their continued support and the biggest thanks to the class of 2017'.

"It has been quite the year, this has really topped it off", Dec said.

"I can't believe we're here for a second season, it was wonderful enough that we were here for season one and it was a bit of a risk to make number two when something was so popular", Jones said.

Whilst on stage accepting the Entertainment Award - which was renamed to honour the legendary entertainer who passed away in August a year ago - they said: "It's an honour to pick this award up, the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award". Hoping to FINALLY end their reign were Bradley Walsh, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. "Broadchurch", meanwhile, was named best Crime Drama.

The various categories saw the likes of The X Factor, Strictly, The Voice and Britain's Got Talent battle it out to be named Best Talent Show.

Blue Planet 2 and Sir David Attenborough won the Impact award.

This Morning won Best Daytime Show, Lucy Fallon picked up the award for Best Serial Drama Performance for his role in Coronation Street, while David Walliams won the award for Best TV Judge.
