First Dates has tonight beaten I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! and Gogglebox to a BAFTA award!

The fly-on-the-wall dating series scooped the gong for Reality and Best Constructed Reality show despite being up against such tough competition, which also included Secret Lives of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds.

It is a rare occasion that Ant and Dec are pipped to the post, however the Channel 4 series has done just that tonight!

But like the true gents they are, the Geordie duo were seen graciously clapping at London's Royal Festival Hall when First Dates was announced as the winner.

This year's House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards is hosted by Graham Norton and is being held at London's Royal Festival Hall.
