Good Morning Britain anchor Kate Garraway was last night honoured with a special award at the TRIC Awards, celebrating her career that spans almost three decades.
Kate, 56, first appeared on screens back in 1989 as a news presenter for ITV News Central, broadcasting across the East and West Midlands every weekday.
The broadcaster remained at the network for seven years before she made the move to ITV News Meridian where she stayed for two years.
However, Kate became a household name in 2000 when she took on the role of co-presenter of ITV's GMTV, airing across the four corners of the nation.
Speaking to her co-hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid who knew Kate was set to receive the special award, she said: "All of you are sneaky liars."
Kate continued: "You knew but you didn't tell me and it was right at the end of the afternoon when I'd completely unravelled.
"My false eyelashes were coming off, I was quite good on the drink, but I'd just generally unravelled."
Flaunting her award to the audience at home, she said: "This is very lovely, thank you very much for a special recognition award, just for surviving so long, it felt like a retirement award."
Shortly after her message of appreciation, Kate's career highlights were displayed featuring a montage of clips over the past 28 years.
In one, she said: "Good afternoon the lunchtime news from Central," during which, she looked completely different.
During the clip, Kate's voice was much deeper and she spoke with a clearer, received pronunciation tone as she delivered the midday headlines.
Her shoulder-length hair was in true fitting with the nineties, offering a lot of volume as she rocked a pair of bold gold earrings and a neutral coloured suit.
As Kate accepted her award, her two children, Darcey, 15, and Billy, 12, delivered a supportive message to their mother.
Billy said: "Thank you so much for looking after dad and trying to make him get better", as Darcey also offered her thanks.
Accepting her award, Kate told the star-studded audience: "It's been tough for everybody and so many people have said today how amazing it is that television stayed on the air, radio kept going and all the production teams and all those people involved and it's so true.
"But, it's not just those, it's all the rest of you in the room.
"It's the people that make the TVs, lay the cables, the people that sponsor the events – all of you keep going we're all in this amazing industry which I've always considered to be a huge honour to be part of to be able to tell people's stories, help them to tell theirs, hold people to account and just generally be part of something extraordinary."
