Davina McCall emotionally accepted a TV Choice Award for Long Lost Family on Monday night, admitting she had been "crying her eyes out" just before accepting the gong.

The 53 year old accepted the award for the hit ITV show, which won in the Best Lifestyle Show category at the prestigious ceremony.

The brunette beauty accepted the gong in a pre-recorded video, in which she struggled to control her emotions.

Speaking from the editing booth for the show, which reconnects loved ones after a lifetime apart, Davina apologised: "I'm sorry I don't look my best.

"I've just finished recording a voiceover for the show. And I've been crying my eyes out!"

She continued: "Thank you so much to everybody that voted for us. We're so thrilled!

"This show means so much to all of us that make it. We want to thank our contributors for sharing their stories and their lives with us.

"It means so much to us also that it means so much to you."

Davina's co-host, Nicky Campbell, added: "Long Lost Family is the most extraordinary thing to be involved with because it genuinely changes peoples' lives.

"And apart from that, it's changed all of our lives as well, being a part of it. Thank you so much for this amazing accolade."

Davina took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to thanks viewers for their votes once again, saying: "I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who voted for us for the TV Choice Awards last night.

"It means so much to all of us that work on Long Lost Family. Our team is just the greatest, they work so hard to find people for people. It really does mean a lot to win an award like this so thank you very, very much."

The win comes at an emotional time for Davina, who recently paid tribute to Sarah Harding.

Sarah, who shot to fame as part of Girls Aloud – who were formed on Davina's show Popstars: The Rivals – sadly lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 39 on Sunday.

Reacting to the tragic news, Davina wrote to her 2.7million Twitter followers: "So so sad to hear about Sarah…

"A star from the get go, hugely fun and outgoing yet also somehow fragile,… love to her family and friends."
