Kylie said 'clunge'....

But here's the rest of the Comedy Awards trivia

  • Angelos Epithemiou had a plan to save Shooting Stars, but would anyone listen? He said: ‘I told them months ago they should change it - get a good person in to host it, like Jimmy Carr, and then get people like Rob Brydon on it, and other people like one of the other ones, and they'd have a chance of keeping it.’

  • The broadcast averaged 1.7million viewers for Channel 4, peaking at 2.27million at 10pm.

  • Armando Iannucci revealed that the team behind I’m Alan Partridge had been out filming in the past week – as the web series originally commissioned by Foster’s prepares to go to Sky Atlantic.

  • Backstage, Freddie Starr had a word with Danny Baker and ‘in all seriousness and rather sweetly, quietly recommended a hair transplant centre’, the radio star tweeted.

  • Have I Got News For You boss Jimmy Mulville got one of the biggest laughs of the night when he said: ‘We had fantastic guest hosts over the past ten years – and Gordon Ramsay.’

  • After the show, Jonathan Ross tweeted that hosting ‘felt rather too much like hard work tonight’.

  • Miranda will not return until the end of next year as star Ms Hart will be taking part in a new BBC One drama, Call the Midwife.

  • Graham Norton in his pants, Jack Whitehall locking lips with a hot girl and Sarah Millican devouring a massive cake. Here are the Sims versions of the King or Queen of comedy awards as the game’s creators see them:

  • Fresh Meat writer Sam Bain, accepting the best comedy-drama award, joked: 'We're actually rather offended to win this award. We thought we were writing a gritty drama.'

  • Jack Whitehall denied rumours he had been offered Hollywood roles, saying: ’You hear rumours all the time and you don't know what's got weight behind it, so you just try to ignore it all.’

  • Ulrika Jonsson looked a bit thin, Konni Huq ‘showed off her burgeoning belly’, Ruth Jones ‘scrubs up well’ and Kylie Minogue had ‘toned legs’ – according to that obsessive observer of female body shapes, the Daily Mail.
