TV host Richard Hammond, ITV duo Ant and Dec and DJ Chris Moyles have all won top prizes at the Television and Radio Industries Club (Tric) Awards.

Ant and Dec shared the TV personality award, while Hammond took best satellite/digital TV personality for hosting Sky One show Brainiac.

Moyles scooped two prizes including best radio show and Coronation Street was named TV soap of the year.

Fiona Bruce won best newsreader and Sian Lloyd took best weather presenter.

The awards were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Tuesday.

Hammond, who survived a jet car crash while filming Top Gear last year, joked: "I'm not allowed to drink for a couple of years so I'm the designated driver, but no-one wants to take the car with me."
