    The National Television Award for Best Presenter has been handed to Ant and Dec – for the 21st year running.

    The pair won out against some tough competition this year, with the full nomination list made up of Graham Norton, Alison Hammond and Bradley Walsh.

    Ant and Dec had held onto the title for 20 consecutive years before the 2022 awards season.

    However, This Morning star Alison Hammond always hoped she could steal the gong from under their noses, with the support of her co-star Holly Willoughby.

    Holly told her on the show: “This is your year!”

    As Alison commented to The Mirror: “Could this be the year Ant and Dec hand over the gong to me?”

    Fans of the programme were fuming at the news, as they said Alison was "robbed".

    Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "Alison Hammond should have won that one, Ant and Dec ain't funny!"

    "#NTAs they win every year FFS!" someone else chimed in.

    As another fan said: "Yeah definitely if anyone was worthy of breaking Ant and Dec’s NTA run it would have been Alison if more people had voted for her!"

    And Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid was clearly on the side of another winner as she swiped at Ant and Dec on the show, as her GMB co-star Kate Garraway said: "We all love Ant and Dec, but if it isn't them, I'd love it to be Alison."

    Susanna chimed in: "It's been them every single year," as Kate agreed: "They've had a run…"

    Alison was up for another award category, too, as This Morning was up for the Best Daytime Show award after 11 consecutive wins.

    Competition for the award includes Loose Women, The Chase and The Repair Shop.

    Sadly Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly had to pull out of an in-public attendance after both catching Covid-19 at the same time.

    The I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! hosting duo issued a statement on their Twitter page which read: “Sadly, it’s true… We even get ill together!

    “After feeling unwell a few days ago we both tested and we’re positive for Covid. We’re resting up at home and are so sorry we can’t be at #NTAs2022.

    “Best of luck everyone and get well soon to anyone else in the same boat x”.

    The pair have also reportedly been forced to pull out of hosting a Britain’s Got Talent special episode, Ultimate Magician, which searches for the best magic acts across all series and locations of the talent show.

    Stephen Mulhern has instead been recruited to step in for the pair – with head judge Simon Cowell also absent due to filming commitments in the US.
