“It’s been a very emotional night tonight, quite a year, quite a tough 12 months, so winning this means a lot.”

Following the big night, Ant has now joked that he found the whole thing so emotional he may not even be able to make it next year.

“I might not come next year,” he told The Sun, before adding: “I tell you what, all of this is not doing my heart any good.”

He continued: “I had a tough summer last summer and the thing for me was getting back to work. I’ve felt the love and support, me personally over the past year, and this topping it off.”
