Presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have been awarded a Guinness World Record thanks to their National Television Award win this week.

The award for Best Presenter was awarded to the pair on Tuesday night and of the 19 years that the award has existed, Ant and Dec have won it 18 of those.

Yesterday the Geordie boys were presented with a Guinness World Record plaque each for the most consecutive wins of Best Presenter at the National Television Awards.

The pair shared a picture of themselves holding the plaques on their Twitter. They wrote: "The folks from @GWR came down to #bgt auditions at @LondonPalladium today and surprised us with these! How lovely! Thank you."

Fans were quick to congratulate the presenters on their achievement. One fan wrote: "Congratulations @antanddec still one of my favourite duos. Great to see Ant back, hope you are feeling better. So nice to see you both back together again."

Another added: "Wow what an achievement you lovely boys."

The duo were unable to attend the awards but gave their winning speech from backstage at Britain's Got Talent.

Ant was clearly overcome by emotion as their win was announced, and told viewers that he didn't feel he could accept the NTA this time.

It's notably been a difficult year for both Ant and Dec as Ant stepped back from all of his television duties following a drink-drive charge last year.

The pair gave an emotional speech when they won the award. (

Dec finished off Saturday Night Takeaway on his own and joined by Holly Willoughby for the latest series of I'm A Celebrity.

Ant said that the latest award was a "genuine shock".

In his speech he said: "Oh wow, oh wow. Thank you, thank you very much. This is a genuine shock, especially this year. I'm shaking here. I want to say thank you to everybody.

He continued: "I really don't feel like I can accept this award this year - it has to go to this guy [pointing to Dec] for his hard work, dedication, wit and funniness and for being the best mate out there - I love you, man."
