David Walliams was booed by the National Television Awards crowd after making a quip about Caroline Flack during the show. 
NTAs 2020 Host David Walliams Booed For Caroline Flack Joke
The former Love Island presenter is currently awaiting trial after being charged with assaulting her boyfriend last month. 
Having stepped down from her TV roles, Caroline was the butt of one of NTAs host David’s jokes after Emmerdale was crowned the winner of Best Serial Drama. After he thanked award presenter Joel Dommett, who appeared on stage with Hedgehog from The Masked Singer, David said: “So nice to see Caroline Flack back on TV as well.”
It was somewhat unclear whether David was referencing Hedgehog or indeed a clip from Emmerdale that was played as the nominations were read out, which featured a fight.Either way, the remark was met with a frosty reception from the audience, with boos audibly heard. 
David’s joke was also negatively received online – most notably from one of his critics, Piers Morgan, who branded the comment “nasty”. Walliams' nasty little dig at Caroline Flack went down like a lead balloon.A bit like his entire hosting performance tonight. #NTAs— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 28, 2020I rarely tweet as I find its normally a place where people come to bitch, but I just didn’t get the #CarolineFlack joke hence I came on here to find out... now I know I realise it wasn’t funny, it was unnecessary and spoilt the night. I like class and he showed none.— Harris.sings (@HarrisSings) January 28, 2020no that caroline flack joke was not funny ! 😾😾#NTAs— Indra Diamandis (@IndraDiamandis1) January 28, 2020David Walliams should be sacked, he said it.

She has entered a not guilty plea and will face trial on 4 March. MORE NTAS Peaky Blinders, Corrie And Ant & Dec Dominate NTAs 2020 Winners People Are Seething That Mrs Brown's Boys Just Won A NTA Over Fleabag And Derry Girls Jesy Nelson's Reaction To Winning A NTA Could Not Have Been Sweeter While Caroline previously revealed she had been advised to stay off social media as she awaits trial, she sent some good luck wishes to the Love Island team ahead of the ceremony. 
Posting on her Instagram Story, she wrote: “Good luck to all the team and cast at tonight’s NTAs… it’s such a fun night… cmon Love Island.”
The ITV2 reality show was nominated for Best Challenge Show, but lost out to The Great British Bake Off.
Caroline has been replaced by Laura Whitmore for the current series of Love Island, and previously broke her social media silence to wish her well ahead of the show’s launch earlier this month.
