  • JUST NOWUGH. THE COVID COMPILATION…Trevor McD is presenting the Entertainment award and there’s a mega mix of the past 18 months.Thought this was supposed to cheer us up?
  • 9 MINUTES AGOI’M A CELEB WINS!The first winners have been revealed. And it’s…. ANT & DEC.Piers is going to be fuming. Bets on how many times they’re on stage tonight?Wonder if Piers will do a Jarvis Cocker and get his bum out in protest a la Michael Jackson.
  • 15 MINUTES AGOMAYA JAMA JUST JAMA-ED UP HER WORDSThat was a bit embarrassing, wasn’t it? “The award for the nominees… I mean, the nominees for the award…”And did she just say Bruce ‘Forside’?
  • 18 MINUTES AGOWHAT AN OPENERThat was absolutely nuts. Literally, there’s a squirrel on the screen.Strictly’s Janette ManChaCha just salsa-ed her socks off with HRVY, the Masked Dancers were on stage strutting their stuff and Joel Dommett’s mum is cosying up to Love Island’s Toby.Brain blown already.
  • 23 MINUTES AGOTHE 26TH AWARDS IS HERE!Harvey’s performing. I didn’t know he could sing. So where’s Katie Price?Oh…That HRVY.
  • THEY TOOK HOW LONG?!Love Island’s Lucinda and Chloe started getting ready for the NTAs SIX hours before red carpet.The reality show is up against The Great British Sewing Bee, The Great British Bake Off and Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.Chloe documented her prep time starting at 1.30pm as she quaffed a glass of watermelon and wore a champagne face mask.Or the other way round.

  • 39 MINUTES AGOWILL KATE GARRAWAY WALK AWAY TONIGHT WITH A WIN?The presenter wrote on social media about being in two minds over the NTAs: “Have been feeling very torn about asking you to vote for our documentary #FindingDerek ‘s nomination for @officialntas tomorrow. I am very proud of it but felt I shouldn’t be asking for more from you. I have even wondered if I shouldn’t go to such a sparkling event and take time away from the family who need me now more than ever.“But a stranger just changed my mind! She was walking past our house & called out ‘hope you win’ . I thanked her but said didn’t think we would as so many good ones in the category & I hadn’t been campaigning for votes as others have.“She looked horrified . ‘But you must‘ she said ‘my sister died from Covid damage two weeks ago. Her heart had been ruined by the virus last summer. She watched your documentary and it gave her so much hope’. It broke my heart.”Good luck, Garraway.
  • 46 MINUTES AGOHOST JOEL DOMMETT’S SECRET WEAPON?Three large vodkas pre show? Nope. Just his wife, apparently.Joel told The Sun: “I owe her everything.“We met at the perfect time, especially in regards to my career, as she’s helped me stay focused and if ever I have a grand idea of myself she quickly brings me back down to earth and keeps me grounded.“Hannah is my secret weapon. She makes me feel like I’m a better person and made me re-evaluate my priorities.”
  • 56 MINUTES AGOLOOK WHO’S RED CARPET READY…Holly’s going outout.And not just on the balcony.
  • HE A-PIERS TO BE IN A BAD MOOD…Piers Morgan has let off steam about Ant and Dec and doesn’t want them to win tonight.He said about the dynamic duo: “I deserve to win because everyone’s sick and tired of them automatically winning this award, which bears no relation to reality.”They’ve done nothing special in the last year, even they would admit that.”I think it’s time the procession came to a shuddering halt and the Morgan bandwagon was rewarded with glory.”We can’t have those two little vain-glorious Geordies standing there for the 20th consecutive year. Ant got one one year when he hadn’t even worked. It’s ridiculous.”He told The Mirror: “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. Imagine the miserable expressions on the faces of those two.”A miserable expression… Hmmm. Where else would we find one of those?
  • 9TH SEPT 2021, 18:35HAMMOND WANTS A WIN FOR WILLOUGHBYAlison and Holly are both up for the same presenting award – but the This Morning newbie has already cast her vote. And it’s NOT for herself.But if she does grab the gong, she said: “I think if I did win it, I would win it for everyone of colour.”I never ever dared to dream this big, this was never even on my radar to be in this category. I might have to make my dreams a little bit bigger now.”
  • 9TH SEPT 2021, 18:20LOVE ISLAND’S TOBY AND CHLOE ARE ON THEIR WAY!Ah. Possibly the best couple to have ever emerged from the villa.Look how CUTE they are.Although Tobes doesn’t look very happy. He’s probably smiling on the inside.
  • EMOTIONAL KATE GARRAWAY FIGHTS BACK TEARS ON GMB AFTER WOMAN WHOSE SISTER DIED FROM COVID INSPIRED HER TO ATTEND NTASThe broadcaster, 54, said it initially “felt wrong” for her to attend the star-studded ceremony at London’s O2 Arena where she is nominated in the Authored Documentary category.She was also reluctant to plead for votes for Finding Derek because of its sensitive and serious subject matter.But a chance meeting with a woman whose life was also turned upside down by the illness changed her mind.The woman insisted she campaign for votes because of the impact it had on those who watched it, one of which was her late sister.Read more here.
