The GB News Breakfast team celebrated a huge win at yesterday's TRIC Awards

Isabel Webster was full of admirations for her Breakfast co-star Eamonn Holmes on Tuesday after the team bagged Best News Programme at this year's TRIC Awards.

Isabel and Eamonn took to the stage with fellow Breakfast hosts Stephen Dixon and Ellie Costello to thank the People's Channel viewers for their votes for the second year running.

The win is a testament to all the hard work the entire Breakfast team put in each and every day, something all four alluded to in their acceptance speeches.

But off-stage, Isabel was keen to pay a special mention to Eamonn who has had a rather tumultuous past 12 months.

Last year, Eamonn endured a botched operation on his back which has left him needing apparatus to walk while just a few weeks ago, he and Ruth Langsford announced their split.

But his work ethic and attitude each day have been commendable, with Isabel saying after their TRIC Award win: "The man never stops!

"He blows me away! He's gone through an awful lot and we are all 100 percent behind him," she told The Sun's Biz.

Eamonn bravely addressed his health battle and split while at the awards ceremony too, admitting it's "not a good time" at the moment.

"I’m not OK," he candidly said to the Mirror. "This is not a good time at all."

Referring specifically to the end of his 14-year marriage, he remarked: "It’s too early to say but I hope we can still be friends."

Eamonn, Isabel and the Breakfast team weren't the only big winners for the People's Channel on Tuesday afternoon.

GB News bagged three awards out of a possible three with Camilla Tominey's interview with Alastair Stewart and former presenter Nigel Farage emerging with gongs.

In expected fashion from the establishment, however, Farage was met by pockets of boos from those in attendance and was even subject to mocking from host Roman Kemp.

But Farage defiantly delivered his acceptance speech, lauding GB News and thanking his fans for their support.

"Thank you! It's like a crowd at a wrestling event really! I notice much less hostility than we had last year," he remarked.

"And just think about it, GB News Breakfast has won, the Camilla Tominey interview with Alastair Stewart won and I have won for a second year in a row for News Presenter of the Year.

"What that says to you is that GB News is here to stay as a mainstream broadcaster in this country and thank goodness for that! Well know those that boo clearly don't like competition! A massive thank you to our listeners and our viewers."

Farage also nobly thanked ITV for his stint Down Under: "But I also want to say a big shout out because I did do a bit of work for another TV company because I did spend a bit of time on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

"Fred Sirieix I have seen up here winning prizes, Fred and I will never agree but we worked well together in the camp.

"Many other campmates here, I'm A Celebrity, great show, I loved doing it!

"Sadly, my TV career has been somewhat curtailed as I have another mission coming up on the 4th of July.

"But thank you, everybody, you will be seeing more of me."
