Chris Evans beat his BBC colleague and rival Chris Moyles to the coveted radio personality of the year award at the 2011 Tric (Television and Radio Industries Club) ceremony.

The former Channel 4 frontman also scooped the award for the nation's best radio programme at the London ceremony.

This caps off a successful year for the broadcaster, who, with the help of veteran newsreader Moira Stuart, has managed to win over growing numbers of fans since taking over from Sir Terry Wogan on Radio 2's popular breakfast show.

However, though he played tribute to the talents of Stuart, Evans was keen to downplay his own success, stating only that it "feels fine" to pip Moyles to the top honour.

Other big winners at the 2011 Tric awards were Eamonn Holmes, who was named as the year's top TV personality, as well as EastEnders star Jessie Wallace, who won the prize for best soap personality.
