I’M A Celebrity stars Stacey Soloman and Shain Ryder took centre stage to entertain at the National Television Awards.

The X Factor singer and former Happy Mondays frontman performed together at the sparkling event, but it ended up as a night for the veterans.

There was a Special Recognition award - and a standing ovation - for Bruce Forsyth.

Stephen Fry, who presented last night's award, described the showman as "a legend".

He added: "That is a word that is often overused but in this case never more deservedly."

David Jason picked up the award for Most Outstanding Drama Performance - despite earlier predicting on the red carpet he would not win.

But his role as world-weary copper Jack Frost saw off challenges from Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, Ashes to Ashes man Philip Glenister and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch.

EastEnders was crowned top soap and also picked up awards for Most Popular Newcomer for Ricky Norwood, who plays Fatboy, and Outstanding Serial Drama Performance for Lacey Turner's role as Stacey Slater.

Other winners included ITV1's Benidorm which carried off the award for Most Popular Comedy Programme and Waterloo Road which won Most Popular Drama.

Zen star Rufus Sewell handed out the Digital Choice award to the cast of teen comedy The Inbetweeners.

Geordie duo Ant and Dec picked up the Most Popular Entertainment Presenter award - a category they have dominated having won it for 10 years in a row.

Top Gear won the prize for Most Popular Factual Programme and its co-host Jeremy Clarkson said: "There hasn't been a fact on Top Gear for seven years now, it's just three middle-aged men falling over."
