Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield share boozy behind the scenes NTAs pics

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield made the most of the photobooth at the National Television Awards on Thursday night.

The This Morning presenters smiled and posed for a series of black and white shots with their award at the glitzy awards bash.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on Friday afternoon, Holly shared the souvenir from the victorious evening for the pair with her 7.3 million followers.

"Just found this in my jacket pocket," the star captioned the collection of snaps of herself and her co-host.

The 40-year-old presenter also added an Instagram gif that read 'love it' to her social media update.

Holly and Phil had reason to celebrate on the night, picking up the award for Best Daytime Show earlier in the evening.

59-year-old Phil joked that he would be 'off his face' as he celebrated scooping the gong with his co-stars.

Although in previous years, the This Morning presenters have had to work the day following their awards, sometimes still in their award show outfits, the pair got to enjoy a day off this year.

"We are now off until Monday for the first time ever so I am off my face in about five minutes," Phil told the MailOnline following his win.

"I want to say my best friend [Holly] was incredible, we sat in our makeup room on our own."

He added: "I got a text from my makeup artist who said you look like a mahogany wardrobe. Every day on our own it was holly and me. She is the best friend to have."

In Holly and Phil's absence from This Morning, presenters Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond were on hand to hold down the fort on Friday morning.

The duo presented Friday's instalment of the ITV magazine show after this year became the first where Holly and Phillip didn't present the morning after the ceremony.

While Alison didn't attend the glitzy bash at The O2 Arena, Dermot had been in attendance at the awards the night before.

While presenting This Morning on Friday, the 48-year-old host joked that it would have been bad himself and Alison had the show lost the year they began presenting Friday's shows.

This Morning won the Daytime category award at the National Television Awards in London on Thursday night.

Holly and Alison had been nominated in the Presenter category along with The Chase's Bradley Walsh and former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, but all four lost out to Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly who won for their 20th time in the category.

After their team win, Holly captioned a lift selfie of the team with the caption reading: "The obligatory lift selfie … Waking up with a full heart this morning… thank you once again… we love making this show and to pick up this award means so much to the whole team… congratulations to everyone at @thismorning … huge love".

This Morning airs on weekdays from 10am to 12.30pm on ITV with previous episodes available on ITV Hub.
