Gogglebox’s Lee had 3 vodkas before NTAs thinking Ant and Dec would win

NTAs: Gogglebox star admits to having three vodkas before show

Gogglebox star Lee Riley made a shocking confession on stage at the National Television Awards after thinking the show wouldn’t beat Ant McPartlin and Declan Donelly.

The Channel 4 series was nominated for the The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award and were up against Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and The Masked Singer.

Over the years it has been known for Ant and Dec to have a clean sweep through all of their nominations and take home the awards.

However, this year it was Gogglebox that took home the award and left Lee amazed they had managed to beat Ant and Dec.

Taking to the stage and making a speech on behalf of the rest of their colleagues, he teased he had to have “three vodkas” in his hotel room after thinking they weren’t going to win.

He said: “What a shock this is, this is an absolute… I thought the BAFTAs was a shock but to beat the two people down here is unreal.

“There must be a better duo! I don’t know! I am speechless, no way was we going to win! No way, no speech no nothing.

“Three vodkas in the hotel now I have to do a speech!”

Speaking about their win after, Jenny Newby claimed their wrap party would be “x-rated” if it was going to be filmed.

Viewers of the NTAs and fans of Gogglebox were delighted that the show had won and took to their Twitter accounts to express their love.
