Change of presenter this year
Dermot O’Leary won’t be at the helm of the NTAs this year, with David Walliams stepping in.
Dermot announced he was quitting in an Instagram post last year, saying “In it, he said “After 10 years of proudly hosting the National Television Awards, I have decided it’s time to step down as host,” he wrote alongside a picture of him holding up one of the iconic golden gongs.
“It’s been a tough decision because we have had a ball over the last decade, but 10 years feels about right. I would like to thank Indigo and my ITV family for a brilliant ten years and look forward to proudly passing on the baton in 2020...and a holiday in January!”
