‘ I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ wins an award


I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is one of the shows airing on ITV Choice (DStv channel 123) that took top honours at the recent 2016 National Television Awards in London.

Despite very strong competition this year, Entertainment Program of the Year Award went yet again to I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! at the UK’s biggest television awards show, voted for entirely by the British public.

South African viewers were introduced to the show for the first time in September 2015 when Series 15 aired within 48 hours of the UK premiere and can look forward to the next series later this year.

Best TV Presenter Award again went to the irrepressible entertainment duo Ant and Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly), who took the gong for the 15th time.  Local viewers will be able to watch their antics again in Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway from 27 February at 20:15.

To mark the National Television Awards’ 21st birthday, a new category was introduced this year – Impact honouring the biggest TV moment of the year. The first winner of the award, Aidan Turner scooped the prize for his sensational appearance in Poldark, which won him many ardent fans here when it aired in 2015. Filming is still underway for the highly anticipated Series 2 which is expected to be aired here in May.

Most Popular Daytime Programme went to The Chase, the hit quiz show hosted by Bradley Walsh, which pits contestants against one of Britain’s finest quiz brains – a regular feature on ITV Choice.
