Ant and Dec won Best Presenter at the NTAs last year for the 17th year running, and their nomination this year caused some controversy as Ant had taken most of the year off following a stint in rehab.

Ant last year announced he'd be taking time out from presenting work after his involvement in a collision in south London while he was driving under the influence.

He was then given what is thought to be the biggest drink-drive fine ever, £86,000, after pleading guilty. He was also banned from the road for 20 months.

Speaking outside court after the incident, Ant said: "I just want to say I'm truly sorry for what happened.

"High standards are expected of me, I expect them of myself. I've let myself down, I let a lot of people down. And for that I am truly sorry.

"I'd like to apologise to everybody involved in the crash and I'm just thankful no-one was seriously hurt."
