It could be another big night for Ant and Dec at the 2021 National TV Awards – as they are once again nominated in the best TV presenter category.
The pair are tipped to win the trophy yet again ahead of fellow nominees Alison Hammond, Bradley Walsh, Holly Willoughby, and Piers Morgan – with the latter even joking that they might ‘need medical attention’ if he actually beats them.
The pair have won the trophy so many times now they even went on to break a World Record in 2019 – and potentially left us wondering why they don’t just rename it The Ant and Dec Award.
But just how many times have the presenting pair taken home the coveted prize?
Here’s all you need to know…
How many times have Ant and Dec won best presenter at the NTAs?
The pair have actually won the TV presenter award at the NTAs no less than 19 times in a row – including at the last awards in January 2020.
Their first win came in 2001, and they’ve taken the award every year since then – with Michael Barrymore having been the previous winner in what now seems like a very distant 2000.
In 2018, the pair also won the inaugural Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award – admitting it was ‘an honour’ to accept the award in memory of the TV legend.
While it may seem like an impossible feat, all signs point to Ant and Dec taking the trophy again for an incredible 20th time on Thursday night.
Oddsmonkey are offering odds of just 1/10 on the pair triumphing, with spokesman Peter Watton saying: ‘Ant & Dec are unbeatable when it comes to the NTAs and that is not about to change anytime soon.
‘The Geordie duo are 1/10 which shows just how likely they are to take the win.’
The NTAs air on ITV on Thursday night from 7.30pm.
