Has it been mentioned that David Walliams is taking over from Dermot on the National Television awards?

Has this actually been confirmed by ITV? It's got a whiff of "ITV ABANDONING COMEDY" to me.

An unamed BGT/Syco spokesperson has to many papers. Although they're spinning it as if it Simon's decision Rolling Eyes I wonder who leaked the story?

Always thought it was a shame ITV weren't willing to let it go head to head with Corrie in the 9pm half-hour during the live shows, especially as any kids in the show couldn't feature live in the 10pm show.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
