Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow has been named best entertainment programme at the National Television Awards.
The stand-up showcase triumphed over fellow nominees Harry Hill's TV Burp, Take Me Out and Dynamo: Magician Impossible at the event in London’s O2 Arena.
When he was handed his award by X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos. McIntyre said: ‘I can't believe it.’
He added: ‘I don't think I should have won. Harry Hill should have won!’
The winners – which are chosen by audience vote – also included Celebrity Juice, which won best comedy panel show over Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and QI.
The best sitcom gong went to Outnumbered, which beat Miranda and Benidorm; while Alan Carr’s Chatty Man beat Jonathan Ross and Graham Norton to the best talk show prize.
Carr joked: ‘I haven't won anything in ages so it's just nice to win. I thought bloody Loose Women would win.’
However there was some consolation for Ross as he picked up the special recognition award, saying: ‘I'm amazed, like so many of you are, that I'm still working. Thanks to all the people that've stood by me; the ones who didn't, I understand.’
And David Walliams received a Landmark Award for his charity work swimming the Thames.
