Ruth Jones slipped into her Gavin & Stacey character 'Nessa' as she collected the award from Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs.

Jones accepted the gong in character as Vanessa Shanessa Jenkins, delivering a twist on her character's famous catchphrase.

"Oh, Olly - what's o'Mur-in?" she joked.

She turned to Sir Tom, saying: "I don't know what you're laughing at Tom. You never write, you never phones..."

Turning to the audience, she recalled: "There's still a lot of electricity between me and Sir Tom, and don't you knows it."

During the original series, Nessa regularly recalled her sexual liaisons with celebrities such as Nigel Havers, John Prescott and members of Welsh comedy hip hop group Goldie Lookin Chain.
