NTAs 2014, The Winners and Who Was Hot and Who Was Not On The Red Carpet – apart from last night’s wardrobe malfunction from Kelly Brook there were a lot of things going on at the National Television Awards.
The least surprising part of the night came with Ant and Dec winning the Best Entertainment Presenter prize for the 13th year running but even they were shocked when they also picked up an NTA Landmark Award which also saw them receive a letter from the heir to the throne, Prince Charles.

It was also a good evening for Doctor Who fans as the show not only took home the award for Best Drama but also saw Matt Smith, the departing Doctor, win the Best Drama Performance award.

As far as the winner sand losers on the red carpet go it was another win for Strictly as the current champion Abbey Clancy won most people’s award for best dressed on the red carpet. She is still clearly benefiting from her dancing workouts and looked stunning in a long red dress.
