Luke Miller, who has been dancing since he was a toddler, accompanied Strictly star Shirley Ballas on stage to give out the Best Presenter award.

Dressed to impress, the pair strutted their stuff, undertaking a mixture of ballroom and Latin dance moves.

Mr Miller, 21 said: 'The NTAs approached me and asked if I wanted to dance with Shirley and of course I said yes.

'I've been dancing since I was two or three and have had lessons with Shirley, she's a family friend, so it was an amazing opportunity to dance her on to the stage.'
