The hit-ITV show still won a prize at this year’s National Television Awards despite Holly and Phil’s controversial ‘queue-gate’ saga.
Taking to Instagram she penned a thoughtful message alongside a selfie with her co-presenter Phillip enjoying the night out.

“Thank you… holy moly… we love you… @thismorning,” she wrote. “You are the best team, you work so hard to make the show what it is.”
Holly added: “We want to thank each and every one of you for voting… you have made this night an absolute dream… thank you also @officialntas for having us… @joeldommett you are a class act…”
Viewers expressed their anger after the pair were spotted ‘skipping the line’ earlier this year to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lie in state.
Bosses later revealed they were ‘using media passes’ and were allowed to pass the 15-hour queue to film an item for This Morning.
Holly and Phil couldn’t even escape queues at the NTAs after the pair were forced to wait in a mammoth line to enter the glitzy venue.
“Holly queuing up to go inside caused a few eyebrows to raise,” said a source. “She got a really warm reception on the red carpet and was greeting fans with a huge smile on her face.
“She had no issue with queuing once she was ushered inside and stood with her husband Dan Baldwin,” the source told The Sun.
Phillip was also snapped queuing as he arrived after Holly; he was seen queuing on the red carpet to go inside the venue with his daughter Molly.
An eyewitness told the outlet: “Phil was in good spirits – despite being crammed into a huge queue.”
