Australian actress turned author Kate Ritchie shared some exciting news on Tuesday night, as she revealed her Nova Radio show Kate, Tim and Marty has been named Australia's number one drive show for the 20th time in a row!
Kate also announced her children's book, It's Not Scribble to Me, has been shortlisted in the Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year awards.
WATCH Kate Ritchie gush about her daughter Mae Webb being her 'greatest achievement':
The Gold Logie winner took to social media to announce the two nods, alongside an artistic swimsuit photo showing her toasting with a full glass of champagne.
"Cheers to a good day 🥂 @katetimmarty is your #1 drive show nationally twenty surveys in a row.. #welldoneteam 🙏🏼 My @penguinbooksaus children’s book #itsnotscribbletome is shortlisted in the Speech Pathology Australia #bookoftheyear awards.. And we are swimming in a sea far from home.. 🐡📚🦀☀️⛱⛵️📿💛🎉 @jeddarobaard," she wrote in the caption.
Kate's picture book, her second early childhood work, was published by Penguin Random House Australia in October 2018 and received rave reviews from fans and children's literature critics alike.
Channel Nine host Sylvia Jeffreys shared her support in the comments section, writing: "So much to celebrate! Drink up!!"
Network 10's Lisa Wilkinson also shared words of encouragement, saying: :"Nailing it Kate. Proof you just can't keep a good Campbelltown girl down. Congrats honey, well deserved!"
The news of Kate's shortlist and radio success is sure to come as welcome news to the former Home and Away star, who has had a tough year plagued by marriage split rumours and her husband former rugby pro Stuart Webb's drink driving charges.
In May, 40-year-old Kate sparked concern after she was spotted looking stressed while running errands in her native Sydney with her four-year-old daughter Mae.
Kate denied rumours of a breakup last year, telling a local publication: "Of course [split rumours] are wrong.. it is baseless.
"Firstly, I think good luck to anybody who thinks they know what is going on in my life because there are times when even I'm not sure! And I don't mean that in a negative way."
