Piers Morgan mocks Ant McPartlin's nomination for National Television Awards

Ant and Dec have nabbed the Presenter of the Year award for a streak of 7 years since 2011 and despite Ant's absence from the final shows of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and his total absence from I'm a Celeb, the pair have still been shortlisted for the award.

"By the way, you know how I was joking about Ant and Dec getting nominated for NTAs because they win it every year, when one of them hadn't done any work this year".

Last month, Ant McPartlin was seen with his presenting partner at Elstree Studios over the Christmas break, ahead of his return to TV early this year.

"They'll win. Even though Ant's basically been sitting on his backside from what I can see walking his dog for the past year".

The pair have been nominated once again for both the Best TV Presenter award, and The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award, which they also won a year ago. "He's got an award".

Since taking a break from the spotlight following his drink-driving incident past year, fans have been eager to see Ant and Dec back together - and we were all delighted to hear that he was going to be back at work this January.

"Really? You're going to give the award to someone who's not done any work this year".

Because once again Ant and Dec have found themselves on the shortlist in the best presenter category.

Although Ant has not been seen on screen since the spring, in the pre-recorded audition footage on Britain's Got Talent, he is still in with a chance of bagging the gold for the 18th time.

The show will also face rival BBC series Killing Eve in the new drama category.

Piers also insisted that viewers should vote for them rather than This Morning.

He also promised viewers that if Good Morning Britain won Susannah would "get hammered" then present the show the following day.
