WATCH: Ant and Dec got fairly emotional after their win at the UK National Television Awards

We're not crying, there's just something in our eye.

2018 hasn't been the easiest of years for the legendary television duo Ant & Dec.

For the first time in a number of years, Ant McPartlin took a step back from the team following a drink-driving incident at the start of 2018.

But that didn't stop them from picking up the Best Presenter award at Tuesday night's National Television Awards.

The pair were not present to receive the award, as they were presenting Britain's Got Talent at the time, but they were told the news live, and their reaction was a very emotional one.

Ant did most of the talking, while Dec looked on, close to tears the entire time.

"Thank you, this is a genuine shock, especially this year - I'm shaking."

Ant recognised that it was his partner's hard work that had to be appreciated more than anything.

"I really don't feel like I can accept this award this year - it has to go to this guy pointing to Dec for his hard work, dedication, wit and funniness and for being the best mate out there - I love you, man."

The "I love you, man" at the end almost got us there.

Have a look here, and prepare to get just a little bit teary eyed:
