'The X Factor's Rylan Clark and Gary Barlow picked up a Loaded Lafta comedy award earlier today (07.03.13).
The pair's on screen altercations during the series' live finals last year saw them scoop a trophy as Funniest Double Act at the annual ceremony in London's Sway Bar.
Rylan also took Best Joke for his exchange with Gary during the show's live finals, telling the judge he had been in a tribute act to his band Take That.
Gary said to him: "I hope you weren't me."
Rylan retorted: "Nah, I was too skinny to be you!"
The singer and TV personality also said he's hopeful to snare a position presenting 'The Xtra Factor' in place of Olly Murs when the show returns this year.
He said: "I still don't know if Olly and Caroline [Flack] are doing it, we'll have to wait and see.
"Things don't get decided on 'X Factor' until the day before, I'm just flattered that my name's come up and if the opportunity comes we'll discuss it."
Elsewhere at the Loaded Laftas, Al Murray was named Comedy Legend and Harry Hill took Best Male Comedian, while Morgana Robinson was named Best Female Comedian.
Keith Lemon triumphed with two awards, Best Panel Show for 'Celebrity Juice' and Funniest Film for 'Keith Lemon - The Movie'.
