Holly and Phil put on united front and hope the public still love us after being booed at NTAs

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield admitted they hope the public "still love" them after their National Television Award win on Thursday night.

After arriving separately, the duo took to the stage at London's Wembley Arena together when This Morning's Best Daytime win was announced – though their acceptance speech didn't go entirely to plan, as some people in the audience were heard booing.

The duo were joined on stage by co-stars including Alison Hammond, Rochelle Humes, Josie Gibson and Dermot O'Leary.

The gang then headed backstage to the winners room where they were asked how they're feeling after their win.

Holly, 41, told OK!: "This is so important to us because it’s voted by our viewers.

"We have such a special relationship with our viewers, they tell us what they want and This Morning listens to that and it changes over the years and continues to change and progress.

She added: "You don’t ever take it for granted."

Phillip, 60, then said he doesn't want their viewers to think they are "complacent".

He said: "We wouldn’t want anyone to ever think we take this for granted. We don’t ever want anyone to think we get complacent or that we ever take this for granted. Every single year it means the world to us, no matter what anyone says we are a tight-knit ship, we love each other.

"We always have each other's backs and I’m so proud of our team. I just say thank you cause we never take this for granted."

This Morning successfully won a National Television Award for the 12th year in a row, despite the controversies surrounding show co-hosts Phillip and Holly.

On stage, Phil and Holly thanked the general public for their votes, before handing to microphone to co-presenter Alison who lifted the crowd's spirits as she joked she should have won another BTA earlier in the evening too.

Arriving at the awards, Holly wore a breathtaking black gown by bridal and couture designer Yolancris as she arrived alongside her husband.

Alison made the time to take selfies with fans as she looked radiant in a purple glittery gown with a plunging neckline.

Phillip had more of a low-key arrival as he arrived significantly after the rest of the This Morning gang.

He attended the star-studded event alongside his 26 year old daughter Molly Lowe – who wore a stunning black and navy outfit.
