Last night's  BAFTAs saw I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here pick up the gong for Best Reality and Constructed Factual Show last night, and Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were sure to honour Holly Willoughby with the award.

Holly stepped in for Ant during I'm A Celeb 2018 after the Geordie TV personality temporarily stepped back from all his presenting duties following a drink-drive charge and stint in rehab.

While he didn't appear on the show at all, Ant did join his long-time co-host Dec on stage with the rest of the jungle team, but ensured Holly was also there right up with them.

Ant gave Holly a push towards the stage to make sure she accepted the award after all her hard work on I'm A Celebrity last year.

Dec also gave Holly a nod in the speech as they accepted the BAFTA together, much to the delight of the crowds.

"Thank you Holly for helping me out last year,"

Dec started his speech, which was met by applauds from those sitting in the audience.

Making it clear that Ant felt like he couldn't accept the award either, Dec continued:

"You did a fantastic job standing in for Ant, who has reluctantly come up here tonight."


Viewers watching the show took to Twitter moved by their sweet tribute to Holly.
