Strictly beats The X Factor at the National Television Awards


Strictly Come Dancing has beaten The X Factor to win the best talent show prize at the National Television Awards (NTAs) in London.

The BBC One show ended The X Factor's three-year run winning the prize, also beating Britain's Got Talent, Dancing On Ice and The Voice.

It comes after Strictly consistently beat the ITV programme in the ratings during their last series.

Presenter Tess Daly said she was "thrilled to bits" to win the award.

Meanwhile, Ant and Dec won the best presenter award for a 12th consecutive year.
