Ben jokingly added: "Not hard enough, Clive's team work a little bit harder, quite frankly. So, buck your ideas up because we need to get Susanna over the line next year. It just won't do," prompting laughter from the studio.

Susanna marked her night out at the awards ceremony on Instagram. Posting a snap showing the ITV star looking all glammed up in a stunning red dress, she shared her appreciation for her nomination in the caption, writing: "RTS AWARDS! Thrilled to have been shortlisted - but HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Clive Myrie for winning Network Presenter of the Year."

The presenter, who suffered a wardrobe malfunction earlier on in the day during Wednesday's show, was inundated with supportive messages from fans. One person wrote: "Congrats to be up there with the best," while another added: "Both fantastic presenters. Well done Clive."
