Stephen Fry scoops two awards at the NTAs

Stephen Fry was the big winner at the National Television Awards tonight winning two awards.

Fry not only received the Best Documentary award for his series Stephen Fry in America, but also took home the Special Recognition award for services to television.

On hearing the news Fry said: “I really am completely staggered by this, I had no idea this was going to happen.

“I have the highest possible belief in television at its best. I think of it as the nation’s fireplace, about which we can gather together and be lit by its light and warmed by its heat.

“It can make us feel better about each other. And it can make us feel better about ourselves.”

Doctor Who also won two awards Best Drama and Best Drama Performance for David Tennant who bowed out of the sci-fi hit on New Years Day.

Other winners include Gavin and Stacey, Loose Women and The X Factor – with Ant and Dec also taking away two gongs.

The night also saw the return of Jedward who performed alongside Vanilla Ice, while fellow X Factor star and show winner Joe McElderry performed Don’t Stop Believing.

The awards now in their 15th year were hosted by Dermot O’Leary at the O2 Arena in London.
