Claudia Winkleman, the Hamyard hotel and a LOAD of awards!
Last night we donned our glad rags and hot-footed it down to the swanky Hamyard Hotel in Piccadilly for the annual Sainsbury's magazine Food & Drink Awards, hosted by the incredibly funny and beautiful Claudia Winkleman. She will undoubtedly now be best known for hosting these awards over Strictly...right?!
The magazine team were joined on the night by lots of the nominees and winners including Mr Kipling (well, not the man himself), Absolut vodka, Wyke Farms and Guylian, to name but a few!
