Jane and her fans were thrilled with the award
Jane gave her fans a festive treat during the Christmas holidays, sharing that one of her new programmes, Jane McDonald's Highland Christmas, would be airing on Channel 5.
In an attached video, the star revealed she had travelled to Scotland in what she described as a "magical Christmas adventure".
Her followers rushed to share their excitement, with one responding: "Thank you for the heads up. I loved your series in Yorkshire".
We can't wait to see what Jane brings us next year!
Others added: "That’s tonight sorted," "I'll be there Jane and a Happy Christmas," and: "Looking forward to it".
Jane likely made time for family this Christmas – one new addition in particular.
Earlier in the year, the 59-year-old returned to Loose Women to catch up with her former co-stars, where she revealed that her niece had recently given birth to a baby boy, who she very sweetly named Ed after Jane's late fiancé Ed Rothe, who died last year.
