Doctor Who star scoops Best Actor at NTA

David Tennant was awarded Best Actor at the National Television Awards last night – and put it all down to his lucky pants.

The Doctor Who star, 36, was caught by surprise when his name was called out at the Royal Albert Hall in London – and he had to quickly pull himself together to bumble on stage.

‘I’ve always got my lucky pants on except when I haven’t got any pants on at all – and that’s unlucky,’ he grinned.

‘I spend my time filming a Christmas special with Kylie Minogue, then I come to a fabulous awards ceremony and then go and film more scenes with Kylie. It doesn’t get much better than this!’

Doctor Who also won Most Popular Drama.
