It’s one of the biggest events in the showbiz calendar – the National Television Awards 2017. And last night, the toast of British TV were celebrated with a lavish ceremony at the O2 arena in London.
Stars from Call The Midwife, I’m A Celebrity, Gogglebox and Happy Valley were all in attendance and collected awards.
But what we want to know is, what happened after the show finished? Who celebrated with who, and which celebrity pals stayed out the latest? Take a look at our peek behind the scenes at the NTA after parties…
Loose Women presenter Nadia Sawalha admitted that despite the late night, she escaped a horrible hangover…
While Nadia’s fellow cast-mate Andrea McLean made it clear that, rather than partying all night, the alcohol probably sent her straight to sleep…
But This Morning’s Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were perhaps the most raucuous pair of the whole night – pictured leaving the official after-party in the early hours, at 3.30am, despite the fact that they had to be up early to present their daytime show….
Philip also made a joking reference to the pairs antics at last year’s National Television Awards – when they both turned up to work the next day in the same outfits they’d worn at the event the night before…
But the two presenters admitted that despite being able to show up to work (and change their clothes), they certainly weren’t at the top of their game, with Philip admitting “We’re not in brilliant condition!”. Holly also revealed a shoe-mishap that almost meant she couldn’t walk the red carpet…
Fellow This Morning presenter Rylan Clark-Neal also looked slightly worse for wear, despite stating that he’d left the party at midnight. He showed up to the studios wearing a pair of dark black glasses, presumably to cover up his bleary eyes, but did eventually take them off while on air.
Ant and Dec were perhaps the best-behaved of the night, appearing to head home at a reasonable hour before filming Saturday Night Takeaway the following day…
Plus, our favourite winners of the night…
Best TV Judge…Mary Berry
Everyone’s favourite Bake Off star scooped the award for Best TV Judge, and delivered an emotional final speech about the show and how much it’s meant to her.
Best Period Drama…Call The Midwife
Call The Midwife triumped in perhaps one of the toughest categories of the night – up against shows such as Poldark and Victoria. The show’s producer also delivered a powerful speech about the programme, saying how important it is that shows like it exist, to give a voice to rarely-raised women’s issues.
Best Talent Show…Strictly Come Dancing
After the departure of judging favourite Len Goodman this year, Strictly ended the series on a bang by nabbing the award for Best Talent Show, beating X Factor and Britains Got Talent.
Best TV Presenter…Ant and Dec
Ant & Dec won the award for best presenter for an incredible 16th year in a row at this year’s ceremony. And it’s not the only award the Geordie duo took home – they also won the prize for Best Entertainment Programme for I’m A Celebrity.
Best Live Magazine Show…This Morning
Beating off the likes of Loose Women and The One Show, Phil and Holly bagged the award for This Morning for the second year running.
