B*Witched at the National Reality TV Awards

'The Big Reunion' won two awards, Most Inspiring TV Show and Best Docu-Soap, at the National Reality TV Awards last night (16.09.13), while 'The Apprentice' also picked up two accolades at the ceremony

'The Big Reunion' took home two awards at the National Reality TV Awards last night (16.09.13).

The ITV2 show - which documented the comebacks of pop groups B*Witched, Five, Honeyz, 911, Atomic Kitten and Blue - won the Most Inspiring TV Show accolade and beat off stiff competition from the likes of 'Chasing the Saturdays' and 'The Wanted Life' to land the Best Docu-Soap prize.

The 'C'est La Vie' hitmakers collected the Most Inspiring gong on behalf of the programme at The Forum in Kentish Town, north London, and Lindsay Armaou was delighted with the recognition the show has received.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's an amazing feeling, we're so honoured, especially to win this particular award which is about the most inspiring show.

"It's lovely to know that we've touched people in some way."

Keavy added: "Winning these awards is quite a nice way to end the show because we're passing over to series two very soon so it's actually a good way to end it."

'The Apprentice' also took home two awards, Best Business Show and Best Reality Competition, while Luisa Zissman, who was runner-up on the BBC One show earlier this year, won Best Female Personality.

Other winners on the night included 'The Only Way is Essex', which beat off competition from 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'Made in Chelsea' to win Best Entertainment Show, while Rylan Clark was named Best Male Personality and Rick Edwards took the Best Presenter prize.

Five concluded the ceremony by performing a medley of some of their greatest hits including 'We Will Rock You' shortly after they picked up the Best Music Act (On a Reality TV Show) award, which they dedicated to 'The Big Reunion'.

They said: "We're really chuffed to win this award. You don't get many second chances in life.

"Thanks so much to 'The Big Reunion', it's such a great show. We couldn't have done it without that. Thanks to all the other bands as well."
