“I don’t think I can accept the award this year,” he continued, going on to praise Dec for continuing to present despite not having his mate with him.

Will the boys triumph again this year?

Simon Cowell has been nominated for best TV judge but his ITV show The X Factor was snubbed from the Talent Show category, that’s seen Strictly Come Dancing, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice UK and Dancing on Ice all in the running for a win.

Despite having revamped the singing competition twice with new spin-offs X Factor Celebrity and The Band, it looks like it just didn’t make the cut this year!

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams, is going neck and neck with his on-screen co-star Simon, while also hosting the awards ceremony, following Dermot O’Leary stepping down from the role.

He suggested he would “chuck in the towel” if Ant and Dec were nominated for the 18th time last year, and low and behold when they did, Dec wished Dermot a “happy retirement”.
