David Walliams beats Simon Cowell to win Best TV judge at NTAs


David Walliams has been named the best TV judge at the National Television Awards.

He beat the likes of X Factor's Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and fellow BGT judge Simon Cowell to win the gong tonight.

David was not present to pick up the award so instead Simon went up on stage on his behalf.

Simon said: "I feel sick. I was given this [envelope] by David and told to open it if won.

"'I don't deserve this award. I have the pleasure of sitting next to one of the most good looking men in the music business and I would like to give this award to Simon Cowell!'"

Simon continued: "I accept! So for everyone who didn't vote, thank you!

"But seriously, well done David."

Earlier in the night, the Great British Bake Off beat the likes of The Apprentice and Mastechef to win Best Skills Show.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of here won the Best Entertainment show while Ant and Dec picked up yet ANOTHER gong for Best TV presenter.
