Loose Women star Jane McDonald's thrill at incredible achievement revealed
Former Loose Women panellist Jane McDonald is a beloved British figure, but she didn't realise quite how popular she is until she was given an impressive honour.
The Yorkshire native was delighted back in 2018, when she won a BAFTA award for her TV show Cruising with Jane McDonald. Not only was this an incredible achievement on a personal level but it marked the first BAFTA Channel 5 had ever received!
A visibly shaking Jane made her way to the podium, where she gave a typically self-deprecating speech.

The star said: "Oh flipping heck! That is so not… I just… no! I've even had this [speech] written for me because I thought, 'There's no way we're winning that!'. Wow, it even says 'wow' on here."
Jane's show took home the Best Feature award at the prestigious awards ceremony, where it was up against No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free?, The Secret Life of the Zoo and Antiques Roadshow.
