    RIOR-LLY YOUNG

    Corrie's Jude Riordan has become the youngest ever NTAs winner aged TEN.

    He couldn't reach the mic so Joel picked him up. "Oh my word! Oh my word! This is amazing," he said.

    Meanwhile, Love Island's Liam and Millie thought they were back in the villa and had their own chat.

    NO DISC-O FOR INJURED EAMONN HOLMES

    The presenter was seen on the red carpet with a walking aid. He explained to PA on the red carpet: "It has been four months. It has been long, it has been slow, it has been hard. It is very painful, I have had physio again today. I have physio most days.

    "Basically, everybody gets confused about what it is. I dislodged two discs in my back, they impinged on my sciatic nerve, that killed my right leg and until I get power back in my right leg I am in trouble.

    "It’s been going on (for) four months so I hope it comes back. Still ploughing on, still doing all that."

    Ouch.

    JOAN COLLINS IS DRESSED AS A DUVET

    I have this exact bedspread.

    Are Ant and Dec hiding in her shoulder pads?

  • Victoria Taylor

    AND THE AWARD GOES TO STRICTLY

    Where are Tess and Claudia? Or the judges? Why is Janette taking the reigns? This is WEIRD.

    Glad Joel didn't win for The Masked Singer.

    Couldn't bear the humble blushing acceptance speech.

    Fact.

    DID ANYONE JUST SEE MARTIN COMPSTON AND HIS WIFE HAVING A SMOOCH?

    They shouldn't be able to do that. It's disgusting.

    It's against the rules of making us all very jealous.

    MICHAEL SHEEN PRETENDS HE CAN'T PRONOUNCE DAVID 'TENNANT'

    "I don't know how to say this: Is it Tennant? Ten-ant?"

    The Sheen is really going to hit the fan if David wins.

    WHY IS FRED BANGING ON ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER?

    Get on with the show, Fred Sirieix.

    No one cares how many GCSEs she's got thanks. Even if she's stood next to you. Cringe.

     

  • Victoria Taylor

    WILL ANT AND DEC BE TRIUMPHANT?!

    Can they make it a 20 year run?

    Let's hope so. (Just to annoy Piers, eh?)

  • Victoria Taylor

    So boring.

    SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD GOES TO…

    Line of Duty!

    "We started as a wee show on BBC2…" says Martin Compston.

    There's a link-up with Adrian Dunbar in another awkward LIVE video.

    "Who knows? We might be back…" they both say.

    It's coming back! It's gospel.

    Elton John is playing in the background. This is all too much.

    Everyone's in bits.

    GARR-AVELY HEARTBREAKING

    Kate Garraway needs to win this award. It won't turn back time but at least it's worth her trip to The O2.
