Matt Smith and Karen Gillan win National Television Awards 2012

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have both won prizes at this year's National Television Awards which took place earlier tonight.

Matt Smith picked up the Drama Performance: Male award which was presented by actress Caroline Quentin.

Smith fought off competition from Martin Clunes (Doc Martin), David Threlfall (Shameless) and Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey).

On winning his first NTA, the actor commented: "Most of all thank you to everyone who watches and who makes the show what it is, so best of luck thank you."

Karen Gillan was also awarded the Drama Performance: Female gong for her role as Amy Pond in Doctor Who. The award was presented by Hugh Bonneville (Captain Avery, The Curse of the Black Spot).

Gillan was up against Eve Myles (Torchwood), Suranne Jones (Scott & Bailey) and Jaye Jacobs (Waterloo Road).

The actress said: "Oh my good God, thank you so much, this means so much to me, this is amazing but I am terrified right now!"

Doctor Who was nominated in the Drama category, but lost out to ITV1's Downton Abbey.

Steven Moffat and Arthur Darvill were also in attendance at the ceremony which was held at the O2 arena in London.

The awards were hosted by Dermot O'Leary and are voted for by the British public.
