And of course, all four GB News presenters were full of thanks for the People's Channel's viewers who voted in their droves to bag victory.

It was the second win of the evening for GB News as Camilla Tominey won Interview of the Year for her chat with Alastair Stewart in September where he bravely shared his dementia diagnosis.

Breakfast faced opposition from Good Morning Britain, BBC News at Six and BBC Breakfast in the category.

Accepting the award, Dixon was first up and said: "I want to say on behalf of all of us, we are so thrilled to have won this for the second year running. So pleased for everyone who voted for us, thank you very much indeed.

"And for everyone who watches and listens to us, those figures are growing week on week and we are so pleased that more people are tuning in."

Eamonn then chipped in: "Thank you very much indeed and the quality of the opposition we're up against says a lot! Really world-class programmes and that makes this that little bit more special for us.

"Sometimes we think we have imposter syndrome, why us sort of thing... Well, I went for an operation a year and a half ago and it went wrong so I got two things in my back that I didn't want so why not? I'll have this and happily accept this. Thank you very much indeed."

Isabel also thanked viewers: "Speaking for the girls as well, I just wanted to say thank you to all our team.

"We're very small, we work our socks off and we really think we're doing something right because the figures seem to (grow) and we thank everybody who voted for us today."

Ellie also commented: "Thank you to our small mighty team and we mean it when we say the audience is at the heart of absolutely everything that we do.

"The audience has voted for us for the second year running so they clearly like what we do and we promise we're gonna keep doing it, so thank you very much."

Stephen also paid tribute to Anne Diamond for being a "key part of the team" as well.

Elsewhere, Nigel Farage made it a hat-trick for GB News at this year's TRIC Awards.

He bagged the Best News Presenter gong at this year's ceremony in London.

Farage stepped back from his role at GB News after announcing his decision to lead Reform UK at this year's election.
