    Holly Willoughby celebrated Phillip Schofield celebrated winning the Best Daytime Show award at the National Television Awards on Thursday (October 13) evening.

    This Morning, The Chase, The Repair Shop and Loose Women were also in the running for the coveted gong.

    As blonde bombshell Holly, 41, and silver fox Phillip, 60, walked up to the stage, Kaye Adams could be seen giving the pair a slow clap while muttering to her co stars as they.

    Tensions over who would win the award have been high this year following the queue-gate scandal that surrounded This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

    Following the monarch's passing, the pair faced backlash after being accused of jumping the queue to visit the late Queen Elizabeth II lying-in-state in Westminster Abbey.

    The presenting duo later issued a statement clarifying the issue, but public anger continued to rise – with over 75,000 signing a petition to axe them from the ITV show.

    They went on to thank viewers for their continued support following the outpour of support on social media after a difficult year.

    Celebrities flooded the red carpet for the most glittering night of the telly calendar, with the biggest names in TV all vying to take home an award.

    NTA favourites Ant and Dec were forced to cancel their appearance at the ritzy bash after catching Covid.

    The much-loved duo were once again up for the TV presenter award, which they have won for the last 20 years in a row.

    They battled it out against Alison Hammond, Bradley Walsh, and Graham Norton for the coveted prize but ended up taking it home for the 21st time.
