The host of ITV1's Daybreak gets trophy despite audience figures dipping to a new low

Christine Bleakley was the shock winner of the Ultimate Presenter award at Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards last night.

The 31-year-old, who co-hosts Daybreak with Adrian Chiles, was given the trophy at the celeb-packed event after a terrible week, where the breakfast show’s viewing figures dropped to a record low.

Insiders on Daybreak have revealed behind-the-scenes morale has been at ‘rock bottom’, but last night Christine was upbeat.

‘Me and Adrian are fine. It’s a new start so we ignore all that,’ she said. ‘The mood’s fine.

‘I’m just struggling with the 3am start. I had a little sleep before coming here.’

Last week, Christine put on a brave face when she returned to work after a week’s holiday, despite criticism from viewers – with one blogger labelling her ‘a giggling airhead’.
