I'm shaking... It's been a very emotional night tonight.

Ant and Dec might have broken records by winning the Best Presenter award at the NTAs for the 17th time, but the pair very almost didn't even make the ceremony!

Spirits were high during this years National Television Awards, with awards being handed out to actors, presenters and TV shows.

It was a very good night for Ant and Dec, who took home not one but three awards including the Best Presenter prize, which they've won for a whopping 17 years in a row.

Addressing Donnelly at the ceremony, McPartlin said: "Thanks to you little guy".
