Speaking to Morning Live she says she feels incredibly humbled by the recognition she received.

She is quick to point out that this is not just her work but a partnership with two camera people who she feels they are the unsung heroes.

"Television is a visual medium, without the beautiful pictures, I can't tell the story, their work was amazing."
