Piers Morgan responds to James Acaster criticism

Piers Morgan has hit out at the public for choosing Ant and Dec to win a TV award 19 times in a row.

The former Good Morning Britain broadcaster is nominated at the National Television Awards (NTAs) for Best Entertainment Presenter, a public-voted category which Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have won every year since 2001.

Should the I’m a Celebrity hosts win again at the 2021 ceremony, it will bring their overall tally to 20.

Morgan has criticised this as “annoying” and “boring” in a Twitter plea for votes, calling himself “a more deserving winner”.

“For 19 consecutive years, @antanddec have won TV Presenter of the Year at @OfficialNTAs. It’s been as annoying as it’s been bloody boring.”

He added: “Now, you can finally end the tediously predictable carve-up & choose a more deserving winner.”

Also nominated in the category are Alison Hammond, Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh.
