Ant and Dec’s Bafta win

The award was the first of the ceremony, prompting Ant to say “what a great start to the night”.

“What a thrill,” Dec continued. “We were convinced we wouldn’t get it this year so we just came for a bit of a party. So this is wonderful.”

“Thank you guys,” Stephen said, butting in. “We’ll get to you, you dirty lobster,” Ant quipped as Stephen took a step back.

“This is a lovely cherry on the cake,” Dec continued.

“We love doing it [the show], we still love doing it, we’ve just completed a series there,” Ant said.

“It’s thanks to this fantastic production team,” he continued. “Everyone here deserves a round of applause. We love them.”

Whilst Ant and Dec were obviously happy that they’d won an award, not all viewers were! Some took to Twitter to complain about the fact that Ant and Dec seem to be always winning awards!

“How did Ant & Dec win another award? I just don’t get it sorry,” one viewer tweeted.

“Ant & Dec could disappear for 5 years and still win awards,” another said.

“Ant & Dec have won so many awards, I am surprised they have got a category named after them,” a third wrote.

“Oh ffs. Not Ant & Dec again,” another wrote.

However, some viewers were happy that the duo had come out on top!

Bravo @antanddec, @StephenMulhern & the rest of the team at @itvtakeaway!! Series 17 gave a light in the dark times. I continue to love every episode, just brilliant entertainment. Here’s to many more series!” one viewer said.
