Alison also apologised to Piers (alongside the Loose Women stars and The Chase) saying: "It's the fifth one we’ve won, we beat off GMB, Piers Morgan, Loose Women, The Chase, soz guys, but we won... On behalf of all the nation, you have been absolutely amazing, along with Eamonn and Ruth, Rochelle, Dermot, Ore and myself obviously, and everyone here, all the team, backstage, in the gallery. 

"Seriously, you have been absolutely amazing and you do deserve this. This is due to COVID why we got this and we do deserve this."
