Ant and Dec continued their record-breaking streak at the National Television Awards on Thursday evening as they scooped their 20th consecutive gong for Best Presenter.

Coronation Street was also a big winner on the night, as Mollie Gallagher was honoured for her performance as goth Nina Lucas, who is at the centre of hate crime storyline which saw her boyfriend Sean murdered by a gang.

Line of Duty also won big on the night, landing the Best Drama gong, as well as Ricky Gervais, who was awarded Best Comedy for his hit Netflix show After Life.

It was a bittersweet moment for Gogglebox, which won Best Factual Show, as they mourned the recent deaths of three of the show’s cast members - Andrew Michael, Pete McGarry and Mary Cook.
