Anneka Rice suffered an awkward blunder during the National Television Awards on Thursday, as she appeared to announce the wrong winner.

The television personality, 64, was tasked with making it to the stage and presenting an award in under three minutes by the shows host Joel Dommett.

But Anneka appeared to jump the gun as she opened the card and blurted out ‘The 1% Club!’ before realizing she has to read out the rest of the nominees first.

As the audience cheered, she quickly added: ‘No! We’ve got Beat The Chasers, In for a Penny and Michael McIntyre. And the National Television Award goes to…’

Elsewhere, the 2022 National Television Awards saw Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby booed by some members of the audience, before This Morning was announced as the winner of Best Daytime Award.

The presenters found themselves at the center of the ‘queuegate’ controversy in September when they were accused of skipping the queue to see the Queen lying in state, which they both denied.

Other notable winners at the ceremony included Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for Best Presenter, Anton Du Beke for TV Judge, Peaky Blinders for Returning Drama and Emmerdale for Serial Drama.

Sir Lenny Henry was presented with the coveted gold Special Recognition Award at the annual ceremony on Thursday night.
