Ruth Langsford celebrates winning major award

It's been a pretty stellar past six months for Ruth Langsford, having starred in Strictly Come Dancing, appeared on magazine covers, and even having launched a brand new Channel 5 show.

The popular television star has been enjoying plenty of career success. And now, she seems to have added to her run of achievements, scooping a major industry award at a recent event.

Ruth, along with the rest of the This Morning cast, won the Special Award, and the award for Best Daytime Show at the TRIC Awards on 13th March.

The star attended a lavish London ceremony at Grosvenor House to collect the prize, and it seems she was thrilled with the win.

Ruth posted a video to her Twitter account, discussing her excitement over the award. She said, ‘Wow. This Morning has just won the TRIC special award 2018. We’d already won an award for Best Daytime Show.

‘So we’d already won an award and now we’ve got the special award because this year is our 30th year. So thank you, thank you thank you to TRIC, we love this. But most of all we love all of you who watch the show so thank you. Ahh!’

And it looks as though the This Morning gang had perhaps a little too much fun celebrating the win on the red carpet, as Ruth was spotted running away from an exploding bottle of champagne!

Ruth, Eamonn and the rest of This Morning beat out Ruth’s other daytime show, Loose Women, to scoop the Daytime Show prize. They also won against BBC Breakfast.

Ruth’s husband Eamonn Holmes also celebrated a brilliant win during the event, being given the award for News Presenter. The 58-year-old won the prize over GMB’s Susanna Reid, and broadcaster Kay Burley.

The Television and Radio Industries Club has long been a respected organisation in the entertainment business. Their annual awards praise some of the best across the board, with the likes of Holly Willoughby and Ant & Dec proving to be big winners last year.

At this year’s ceremony, Suranne Jones also enjoyed a successful night.

She won Best Drama Performance at the awards ceremony. And her series Doctor Foster won Best Drama Programme too – even beating popular favourite Call the Midwife. However, sadly the actress wasn’t there in person to collect the accolade.

Sounds like a pretty successful showbiz event to us!
