1% Club host Lee Mack makes funny dig at Ant and Dec at the National Television Awards
Making a quick joke while accepting the National Television Awards honour, Lee Mack said: “Well, I don’t know who’s set the microphones up but I bet they thought he was going to do the talking,” before pointing to a shorter colleague.
While the audience laughed, he continued: “… Or that Ant and Dec were going to win it”.
Soon after this moment, the pair went in to continue their winning streak when they won the Best Presenters award for the 22nd year in a row.
Ant appeared shocked by the win, saying: “Thank you, thank you so much to the National Television Awards. We’ve got quite a list of thank you’s.”
After dozens of thank you’s, Dec then took the mic, telling the audience: “Thank you to ITV. Our fantastic management team at YMU. Thank you to our lovely wives and beautiful children. I can’t believe we’re still getting away with this. We are as humbled as we were when we won it for the first time.”
