First contestant evicted from the Jungle, comedian Shappi Khorsandi didn’t disappoint with her award show garb, showing off her ample cleavage in a plunging black floor-length gown, while soap star Jennie McAlpine injected a pop of colour on the carpet in an eye-catching violet off-the-shoulder number.
Flanked by the rest of the cast of this year’s cast of the hit ITV show, Rebekha – alongside former MP Stanley Johnson – helped pick up the award for Best Challenge.
The jungle-based reality show fended off stiff competition from runaway summer hit Love Island, cooking show Master Chef, and the revamped Great British Bake Off.
Glamorous Rebekah posed up a storm with the award in hand, even goofing off with politician Stanley, amusingly placing the award on his head while he spoke to the press.
Returning host Dermot O’Leary fronted the National Television Awards that were broadcast live on ITV from London’s O2 Arena.
Former Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo replaced Scarlett Moffatt as backstage host for 2018, after stealing her crown as queen of the jungle on I’m A Celebrity 2017.
The presenting gig helped launch Scarlett’s TV career in 2017, as she went onto front the revamped Streetmate dating show, as well as landing a gig on Saturday Night Takeaway.
Meanwhile, Love Island stars Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes hosted the glittering red carpet and entertained fans with an amusing video that aired out mid-show.
TV double act Ant & Dec were the superstars of the night, sweeping the board with four gongs. They took home the TV Presenter prize for a record-breaking 17th time, beating the likes of their good friends Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Bradley Walsh.
Having endured a turbulent year when it comes to his personal life, Ant reflected on his troubling time of late on accepting the honour, as he told the crowd and viewers at home: ‘Thank you, I’m shaking… It’s been quite a year, a tough 12 months, so winning this really means a lot, to my family and friends, some of who are here tonight, thanks very much, and to this man, I love you thank you.’

Dec added: ‘ Possibly this year more than any other, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.’
Showbiz veteran Sir Bruce Forsyth sadly passed away in August last year, aged 89, following a long illness and a battle with bronchial pneumonia. Sir Bruce is loved around the country for his 75-year TV career presenting shows including The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and Strictly.
His legacy was honoured when Strictly Come Dancing returned to screens in September, with the show’s professional dancers performing a routine in tribute, before Bruce’s best moments from his time on the series were played.
Seal gave a touching performance of I’ve Got You Under My Skin ahead of the prize being awarded, while Bruce’s wife Wilnelia took to the stage to present the award.

Making the likes of Bruce’s old Strictly co-host, Tess Daly, well up, Wilnelia said: ‘I wish I wouldn’t have to be standing here this evening in front of you, but I’m so proud and honoured that this special award is named after my darling Bruce.
‘I know he would have loved it, showbusiness was his life, he would be saying to all of you it’s been nice to see you, to see you nice.’
Despite each losing out on the TV Presenter award, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoyed success, as This Morning bagged the Daytime prize once again, beating the likes of The Chase, The Jeremy Kyle Show and Loose Women.
Thrilled with the gong, Phil gushed: ‘We love getting up very very early in the mornings even when it is cold and dark, so we can work on a show that we are so proud of and I can work with someone who I absolutely adore.’
Holly made sure to add: ‘I am lucky to work with not only one of my best friends and one of the best teams in the business… you are the best, we love you!’
Just a small poke: Rebekah goes for Stanley’s ear for her next surreptitious gag, leaning into the politician to get a touch closer

Simon Cowell, meanwhile, found himself with two nods in the Talent Show category, with both Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor nominated for the prize. They will battle it out against Strictly Come Dancing and The Voice UK – following its channel move to ITV from the BBC.

But he found himself coming up short, as David Walliams beat him for the second year running in the TV Judge category, while Strictly Come Dancing took home the gong for Talent Show.
‘The viewers mean so much to us, if we didn’t have you we wouldn’t have Strictly, this is for you,’ Tess Daly said on accepting the prize.
Following her list of thanks, Tess added: ‘Last, but not least, I would like to dedicate this award to my friend and yours, the one and only Bruce Forsyth. Thank you for the memories.
