Ant and Dec have won Best TV Presenter for the 22nd year in a row.
National Television Awards 2023 on Tuesday night (September 5), the Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity duo continued their unrivalled string of victories in the category.
This year’s category saw Ant and Dec facing off against Alison Hammond from This Morning, Martin Lewis for The Martin Lewis Money Show, Bradley Walsh for The Chase and Claudia Winkleman for Strictly Come Dancing and The Traitors.

“Thank you to all of the shows and all of the people we work with. We are the luckiest people on earth because we have the best production teams on earth,” Ant told the cheering crowd.
Dec admitted that he was more nervous than ever for this year’s award, adding that the duo were “as humbled” as ever to win.
“We’ll keep doing it [working] as long as you want us to keep doing it,” Ant promised.
Ant and Dec are incredibly busy these days, following the recent confirmation from ITV that their game show Limitless Win has been renewed for two more series.
The presenters are also only a few months away from returning to the jungle for another series of I’m a Celebrity and have more BGT on the way next year.

Despite their historic win, the duo did have a blip during this year’s NTAs when Googlebox pipped them to score the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award, ending their 10-year streak in the category.
The National Television Awards have aired live on ITV1 and ITVX.
