David Walliams 'Simon Cowell won't give my National Television Award back'

26 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

David Walliams has spoken of his delight at winning a National Television Award.

The comedian quipped that since Simon Cowell accepted the Best TV Judge prize on his behalf, he doesn't expect to be getting the trophy any time soon.

"I've got a feeling I'm never going to get that National TV Award," Walliams told Good Morning Britain. "[Simon's] probably already scratched my name off it and put his name on it!"

He said of the award: "It's a great feeling mainly because Simon Cowell didn't win it - he got really desperate in the last few days before the voting closed and started tweeting pictures of his dog saying, 'Please vote for my daddy', and he said he was going to adopt some kittens if he won... And he still didn't win! Mwahahaha!"

21 January 2015 7:13 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ant & Dec have decided to get in early with their golden buzzer on Britain's Got Talent this year.

The pair pressed the buzzer earlier this week, on the first day of live auditions for the show in Edinburgh.

"The talent's good, the talent's really good, and we've pushed our golden buzzer already," Ant explained to reporters including Digital Spy backstage at the National Television Awards.

"We got in there early - a really good act, actually. I think it's fabulous."

Dec added: "Last year we waited until the last session of the last day to push our golden buzzer. We weren't getting caught out with that again!

"We pushed it on the first session of the first day. They're a great act. But a really good level in Edinburgh. [It's] Manchester next, so we're very excited."

Dec also has high hopes for 2015's search, saying: "It's good to have a really steady judging panel as well. »

The 20th National Television Awards took place at London's O2 Arena this evening (January 21), with David Tennant, I'm a Celebrity, Sheridan Smith and Ant & Dec all triumphant.

National TV Awards 2015 - as it happened

A star-studded crowd saw performances from X Factor winner Ben Haenow, a late acceptance speech from an apologetic Sheridan Smith and appearances from most of the high-profile names in UK television.

Highlights from the glitzy ceremony also shed light on the ongoing 'Who killed Lucy?' EastEnders storyline with a new clue, Simon Cowell begrudgingly accepting David Walliams's TV judge award on his behalf and Pixie Lott's duet with The Proclaimers.

Simon Cowell lifts up David Walliams' kilt at Britain's Got Talent auditions

19 January 2015 8:57 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent's live auditions began in Edinburgh today (January 19).

On the red carpet, Simon Cowell did his best to see whether fellow judge David Walliams was a true Scotsman as he lifted his kilt outside the city's Festival Theatre.

While Walliams came turned out in traditional Scottish attire, Cowell ditched his trademark bootleg jeans for bootleg black trousers with a grey marl top.

Meanwhile, Amanda Holden wore a red bardot-style red dress - with matching lipstick and pointed stilettos - as she posed on the red carpet.

Alesha Dixon opted for a strapless, fitted black dress which she teamed with slicked back hair and statement necklace.

After Edinburgh, the judges will then go on to Manchester, Birmingham and London to see more variety acts, while the Golden Buzzer will allow the judges to send their favourite act straight through to the live semi-finals.

Get Your Act Together Stephen Mulhern: 'One star just lost his nerve'

18 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We might not have Dancing on Ice anymore, but ITV's hoping to keep us entertained during the winter months with a brand new show! Get Your Act Together sees a whole host of celebrities teaming up with famous variety acts to learn their skills - and then trying to perform them to a live studio audience (who decide whether or not they get through).

The whole extravaganza is being hosted by Stephen Mulhern, so we got him on the phone to chat about acts that struggled, why he's always worried about shows going out, and how the studio audience surprised him...

"If you like Britain's Got Talent then you'll love Get Your Act Together. It's a combination of two things – the basic idea is that it's a speciality act from around the world who will then teach a celebrity what they do. Obviously the pressure is on the celebrity learning it, »
