Piers Morgan has joked Ant and Dec should have a medical team on standby in case he beats the pair at tonight’s National Television Awards.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter, who is up against the Geordie duo for the best TV presenter prize, believes he deserves to win as they’ve ‘done nothing special in the last year’.
‘We can’t have those two little vain-glorious Geordies standing there for the 20th consecutive year,’ Piers snarled.
‘Ant [McPartlin] got one one year when he hadn’t even worked. It’s ridiculous.
‘I’m taking a leaf out of his book, I haven’t really done much presenting in the last six months. So, therefore, by the Ant and Dec rule, I should get it.’
He continued to blast to the Mirror: ‘Imagine the miserable expressions on the faces of those two. And if they not only don’t win… [but] have to see me trotting up and raising the award, you may have to have a medical team on standby to race in and make sure they’re OK.
‘We might need smelling salts for that one.’
Tonight’s National Television Awards is taking place in London with comedian Joel Dommett on hosting duties.
Ant and Dec have won best TV presenter for a staggering 19 years in a row, but Piers has set his sights on dethroning them.
The television personality was nominated following a turbulent first half of 2021 which saw him depart Good Morning Britain over comments about Meghan Markle.
Piers and Ant and Dec are also up against Bradley Walsh and This Morning stars Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond.
Elsewhere at the NTAs, all three stars of Line Of Duty vie for the drama performance prize.
