A special award was given to the Antiques Roadshow, which has been in production for 30 years.

The Cadbury's advert featuring a gorilla drumming to Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight won in its category.

The Tric Awards have been handed out since 2002, with the winners' lists "reading like a who's who of the entertainment industry", according to organisers.

The club was formed in 1931, with a membership which encompasses showbusiness personalities and a whole host of associated industries.
