Piers Morgan attacks Ant McPartlin for winning TV award despite 'not turning up'

Harsh.

Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly took home the top prizes for both I’m A Celebrity and Saturday Night Takeaway at the TV Choice Awards last night.

Yes, the pair won in both the Best Entertainment Show and Best Reality Show categories last night, and despite the duo not being in attendance, everyone was still delighted to see them awarded the top prize.

Everyone except Piers Morgan, that is.

Yes, the TV grouch complained this morning on Good Morning Britain about Ant receiving an award despite having to pull out of the final two episodes of Saturday Night Takeaway.

When talking about attending awards ceremonies, Piers said:

“I’ve decided that I’m not going to attend any more awards ceremonies… ever.

“I mean Ant and Dec winning when half of them isn’t even there, it's ridiculous.

"At least I pitched up for work.”

Co-host Susanna Reid was quick to interrupt Piers, however, congratulating the pair on their victory.

"Congratulations to them anyway. And those were this morning's top stories"

Ant pulled out of the last two episodes of the most reason season of Saturday Night Takeaway after being found guilty of driving under the influence earlier this year.

He has yet to return to his presenting duties, and will not be taking part in the next season of I'm A Celebrity.
