Television favourite David Jason scooped three prizes at the National Television Awards last night - most popular actor, comedy performer and comedy programme (for Only Fools and Horses).

But at a ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall, Robson Green collected two prizes - most popular drama series for ITV's Reckless, which beat Jason's A Touch of Frost, and the Special Recognition award, which Jason won last year.

Entertainer Michael Barrymore arrived arm in arm with his estranged wife and manager, Cheryl, at the awards ceremony, just over a fortnight after the announcement of their latest split.

The couple first split after 17 years of marriage when Barrymore revealed his homosexuality.

Model Caprice stole a march in the battle of the frocks, making a stunning entrance in a sequined bustier, long flared skirt and a #250,000 diamond in her navel.
