Holly beats Ant and Dec to TV personality award

By Joe Nerssessian

This Morning host Holly Willoughby has collected the TV personality of the year award at the Television and Radio Industries Club Awards.

On her win over Ant and Dec, she said: "It's amazing. They win absolutely everything, that is amazing. I'm delighted, I can't even begin to tell you how delighted I am."

Veteran EastEnders actress June Brown, who turned 90 last month, was also recognised with a special prize for her contribution to the industry.

Speaking backstage at the award show in central London, co-star Harry Reid, who stars as Ben Mitchell, joked the cast would be "on strike" until Brown wins a Bafta.

Brown was nominated for a Bafta for best actress in 2009 but missed out on the prize.
