Peaky Blinders, Bodyguard and Ant & Dec were amongst winners in Britain’s National TV Awards.
The awards, voted by the public, gave a surprise win to Ant & Dec given Ant McPartlin’s drink-drive conviction last year and absence from screens last year.
Via a video acceptance speech he said, “Thank you, this is a genuine shock, especially this year – I’m shaking.
“I really don’t feel like I can accept this award this year – it has to go to this guy [pointing to Dec] for his hard work, dedication, wit and funniness and for being the best mate out there – I love you, man.”
