"It means a lot. It's about time - I've never had one just for myself," Ronnie Wood explained joyfully about his first ever gong for outstanding contribution to music.
His young girlfriend couldn't have been happier either. Normally one for a 'thrown together' boho cool look, 20-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova had glammed up for her man's big night.
The Russian beauty looked sophisticated in a blue sparkly mini dress, alongside the 62-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist, who received the accolade at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards.
Since the official end of his marriage to Jo, the mother of Ronnie's two children, the couple have cemented their relationship further.
They now share a luxury pad in Surrey, just down the road from his former marital home.
Ekaterina, a former waitress, also recently attended a gig Ronnie played in Dublin with his 32-year-old son Jesse – suggesting she has been welcomed into the family fold.
The new thaw in relations with his children following the divorce may be down to Jo. She exclusively revealed to HELLO! that she'd urged them to forgive their father.
