Holly Willoughby scooped three prizes at this year's TRIC Awards.
The 36-year-old star won the statuette for TV Personality of the Year and was also handed gongs for her work on 'This Morning' and 'Celebrity Juice' which won the gongs in the Daytime Programme of the Year and Satellite/Digital Programme of the Year categories respectively.
Holly - who was joined by fellow 'This Morning' host Eamonn Holmes at the event - celebrated with 'Celebrity Juice' host Keith Lemon and was thrilled when the flame-haired joker went to find her when the show was announced as the winner so they could go up together to accept the silver statuette.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the ceremony held at London's Grosvenor House Hotel on Tuesday afternoon (14.03.17), Holly said: "What was really nice was that we were sat at different tables because I was sitting on the 'This Morning' table and I could see Keith across the crowded room looking around for me."
Speaking about his excitement at winning, Keith added: "It's unbelievable, I feel like a kid on a log flume! I got waves in my belly. I love a log flume. It's nice to win an award though. But then again, it's nice to win your bronze swimming award!"
Holly took to her Instagram account to share her joy at her amazing hat-trick of wins with her 1.9 million followers.
Uploading a photo of her holding two of her three trophies over her eyes and sticking her tongue out, she wrote: "Oh me oh my!!!!! #tric (sic)"
