Other winners included Ellie Goulding, who took the music star prize, and Paloma Faith was named style icon.

In the male category, I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! presenters Ant and Dec were given the ultimate men prize in recognition of their years as top TV entertainers.

The pair sent a pre-recorded acceptance speech from Australia, as they worked on their ITV show this week.

Declan Donnelly said: "We just want to say how thrilled, excited, honoured and randy we are to be your men of the year.

"It's quite a thrill for us isn't it?"

After being handed a makeshift version featuring two nude figures with fig leaves, Donnelly added: "You know, we're not gay, we're just friends."

More than 400 guests attended the event, which also recognised Baroness Doreen Lawrence.

She was given the editor's choice.
