Christine Bleakley crowned Ultimate TV Presenter at Cosmo awards... despite Daybreak's shockingly bad ratings




Winner: Christine Bleakley was crowned the Ultimate TV Presenter at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year awards, despite her ITV morning show Daybreak's shockingly poor ratings

Christine Bleakley has been crowned Ultimate TV Presenter at the Cosmopolitan Women Of The Year awards, despite her ITV morning show Daybreak's flagging ratings.

The 31-year-old presenter's win came in spite of figures released last week, which showed that just 530,000 viewers are tuning in to watch Bleakley on Daybreak - a third of the audience for its BBC rival, Breakfast.

Among the other winners at the star-studded event at the Banqueting House in London, was Doctor Who beauty Karen Gillan, who took home the Ultimate UK TV Actress award.

Picking up the prize: Bleakley was awarded the gong by Westlife, and posed with two of the group afterwards

Fellow redhead, Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts - who launched her own make-up range for pale skin this year - was named Ultimate Fashionista.

Roberts' bandmate Kimberley Walsh also attended the event, as she was on a panel of celebrity judges who selected the winners of the awards recognising the bravery and achievements of the nation's non-celebrity women.

Walsh was joined on the panel by Cosmopolitan editor Louise Court, Cosmopolitan's agony aunt Irma Kurtz, The Apprentice advisor and businesswoman Karren Brady, TV presenter Reggie Yates and former Spice Girl Mel B.

Winners: Nicola Roberts took home Ultimate Fashionista, Alexandra Burke won Ultimate UK Music Star and Sheridan Smith was awarded Ultimate Theatre Star

Court said: 'I have been honoured to once again celebrate the achievements of such deserving people.

'The women that have been recognised tonight are truly inspirational and all embody the 'fun and fearless' spirit of the magazine.'

Katie Piper - whose bravery after an acid attack led to her offering other burns victims a lifeline through her charity, The Katie Piper Foundation - won the Ultimate Editor's Choice award.

Grime artist Dizzee Rascal was presented with the Ultimate Man of the Year award.

And former Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps star Sheridan Smith picked up the Ultimate Theatre Star award for her role in the West End hit Legally Blonde: The Musical.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke picked up the award for Ultimate UK Music Star and TV presenter Fearne Cotton, who last year climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief and recently took part in a celebrity trek around Peru for Breast Cancer Care, was named Ultimate Celebrity Who Made Us Care.

American model Crystal Renn was given the Ultimate Catwalk Queen award.

She has written an autobiography, Hungry, about her battle with anorexia after getting into the industry and become a successful plus-size model.
