Ant and Dec with their Bafta TV awards

Ant and Dec are celebrating their first ever TV Bafta award, after scooping best entertainment performance for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

The duo have been nominated for an award five times before, but they've never won anything until now.

Simon Cowell got a special prize for his work on Saturday night talent shows such as The X Factor.

His show Britain's Got Talent was named best entertaiment programme, just a day after Spelbound won this year's final.

Happiest feeling

On accepting his special gong, the talent show judge said: "Standing here tonight getting this award for making TV shows is the happiest feeling of my life."

There was also happy news for EastEnders, which celebrated its 25th birthday this year. The soap beat rival Coronation Street to best continuing drama.
