McPartlin was speaking to The Sun after he and Declan Donnelly won Best TV Presenter for the 17th year in a row at the National Television Awards.
After yet another successful year at the National Television Awards, presenter Ant Mcpartlin has said that he might not attend the ceremony next year because has found it too “emotional”.
McPartlin, one half of the beloved presenting duo Ant & Dec with his best friend and colleague Declan Donnelly, won the Best TV Presenter at the 2018 NTAs on Wednesday night (January 24th), just like he has done for the 16 consecutive years before that.
Given his much-publicised struggles with addiction that emerged in the press in 2017, coupled with the recent news of his divorce from his wife of 11 years, Lisa Armstrong, this year’s win was freighted with extra significance for him.
The awards show left 'This Morning' presenters a little worse for wear though.
British television is celebrated with the arrival of the 23rd National Television Awards. Naturally Ant and Dec bagged the most prizes, but it was Paul O'Grady who was honoured with the annual Special Recognition Award for his work on the small screen for the past 30 years.

This year's ceremony was hosted by Dermot O'Leary and saw the re-naming of the Entertainment Show Award as The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award after the 'Strictly Come Dancing' star, who passed away in August 2017. This year's winner of that very same award was, of course, Ant & Dec.

It had been speculated that McPartlin would have to miss presenting the ITV reality show alongside his colleague and best friend Declan Donnelly.
Following suggestions that he was preparing to take up to a year out of the spotlight, ITV bosses have confirmed that Ant Mcpartlin will be returning by the end of 2017 to present the upcoming series of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’.
The 41 year old presenter revealed earlier this year that he nearly died as he battled depression and struggled to overcome dependencies on alcohol and prescription drugs. He entered rehab back in June this year, having been addicted to super-strength painkillers for two years after a knee operation back in 2015.
When news of it came out, it cast doubt over whether the Geordie presenter would be able to front ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ in Australia in October alongside his colleague Declan Donnelly as they do every year.
Re-branded as 'The Best Time Ever', the Geordie duo will be there to help Harris to present the first show on NBC in September.
British presenting veterans Ant & Dec are to make a return to US television after their failed attempt to launch their career Stateside seven years ago.
