Matt Smith and the Doctor Who team were the big winners at tonight's National TV Awards at London's O2 Arena. The show picked up the prize for Best Drama, with Smith's Doctor taking home the award for Best Drama Performance.

Ant & Dec enjoyed a stream of successes too, winning Best Entertainment Presenter, Best Entertainment Programme for I 'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! and the esteemed Landmark accolade, complete with a tribute from Prince Charles.

"It still means so much to us, it's still so lovely," said Dec when accepting the award for Best Entertainment Presenter (for the millionth time).
