David Walliams hosted the National Television Awards last night for the very first time and some of his jokes left viewers unimpressed. The Britain’s Got Talent judge was booed by the audience during the annual ceremony at London’s O2 Arena after taking a swipe at Caroline and was later blasted by Piers Morgan on Twitter over the remark.
At one point in the evening The Masked Singer host Joel Dommett arrived on stage to present an award with contestant Hedgehog.
The ITV talent show sees a number of celebrities hiding behind elaborate costumes singing for their chance to stay in the competition.
Joel confessed the real celebrity who remains in the competition might not be in the Hedgehog costume.
He joked the real contestant could actually be at home “watching Love Island".

The Masked Singer duo then announced Emmerdale had won the award for Best Serial Drama.
While Joel led Hedgehog off stage, David swiped: “Thank you Joel and so nice to see Caroline Flack back on TV as well.”
As David attempted to continue his link to the next award, the audience could be heard booing the Britain’s Got Talent judge.
Caroline stepped down as host of Love Island following her assault charge involving boyfriend Lewis Burton.
