National Television Awards 2014: The winners list in full

Doctor Who, Ant & Dec and Benedict Cumberbatch were among the winners

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).

TV Detective, a new category this year, was won by Sherlock's hero Benedict Cumberbatch, after the drama was revealed as the BBC's most popular in a decade earlier today.

Julie Hesmondhalgh won Best Serial Drama Performance for her role as Hayley Cropper in Coronation Street. The soap picked up the Best Serial Drama award too.

In the Best Talent Show category, Strictly Come Dancing beat Simon Cowell's shows The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, with supermodel Naomi Campbell presenting the award.

Performers included The X Factor winner Sam Bailey, Nigel Harman and Abbey Clancy from Strictly Come Dancing.
