Ant and Dec scoop first Bafta while Amanda Holden rules in the fashion stakes

by It was a big night for comedy duo Ant and Dec on Sunday night as the TV presenters picked up the first Bafta of their two decades-long TV career.

The best pals won Best Entertainment Performance at the Bafta TV awards for their presenting work on I'm a Celebrity... And true to form, they couldn't help joking around as they went on stage to collect their trophy.

Dec said: "I wasn't expecting that. This is for series nine. I don't know what the hell we did wrong for the first eight series."

Ant chipped in: "Feed a couple of kangaroo testicles to a glamour model and you get this. Wow!"

The pair went back on stage to help their Britain's Got Talent co-stars pick up the Best Entertainment award, and their presenting skills were called upon to give a lifetime achievement award to Simon Cowell.

Also on presenting duty was Amanda Holden. The BGT judge won praise from commentators for her choice of outfit – a one shouldered white and ivory fairytale gown split to the thigh.

Other winners on the night included EastEnders, which triumphed in the Best Continuing Drama category, and Julie Walters, who was named Best leading Actress for her portrayal of former Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Mo Mowlam, in a Channel 4 biopic.
