Corrie wins big at the soap awards

The Street swept the board at the British Soap Awards as star Lucy Fallon was a double winner.

The stars of soap have flocked to the capital to attend the prize giving in London on Saturday and Lucy was the first onto the podium as she picked up two honours for her role as troubled Bethany Platt.

She picked up Best Female Dramatic Performance for her gritty turn as abused teen Bethany.

Lucy, 22, looked delighted as she was handed her trophy by Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas.

She said: "Thank you so much the storyline raised so much awareness - I want to say thank you to everyone at Corrie.

"And my boyfriend Tom and my family and mum cos she's watching."

Lucy was back on the podium a little while later to pick up the Best Actress and she got the chance to thank anyone she missed in her first speech.

She admitted her dad had texted her and told her off for forgetting to mention him, so she gave him a shout out in her second turn on the podium.

Lucy said: "Thank you to my dad. He texted me before and was angry I didn't say thank you. So thank you dad."

The Tony Warren Award, that honours exceptional work done behind the scenes on soaps, was presented to outgoing executive producer Kieron Roberts for all his work on the show.

Hollyoaks was the next most successful soap with four awards, EastEnders took home three, while Emmerdale and Doctors took home two each.

EastEnders and Doctors also made history by scoring the first ever tie as they shared the prize for Scene of The Year for Abi and Lauren's rooftop fall and the medical drama's Bollywood proposal.

The London-based soap was represented by Jake Wood, who collected with with onscreen daughter Jacqueline Jossa, and gave a special mention to former co-star Barbara Windsor, who is battling Alzheimer's disease.

One of EastEnders' trophies was the Best Newcomber prize, which went to Lorraine Stanley, who has joined EastEnders as Karen Taylor.

Viewers were amazed by her glam look onstage as she ditched her drab onscreen look for a chic red carpet outfit.

Best Young Performance went to Emmerdale's Isobel Steele.

The next big win was for Villain of The Year and it was no surprise when Corrie's Connor McIntyre picked up up the prize for his terrifying portrayal of serial killer Pat Phelan.

Louise Redknapp was on stage to present the Best Single Episode prize to Hollyoaks, and she looked chic in a white trouser suit with a black see-through lace top.

There was also a poignant moment in the show when a tribute to late Corrie star Liz Dawn was played.

The audience gave her a standing ovation and several stars, including Brian Capron, were seen crying.

Another big award went to Hollyoaks' Ross Adams, who won Best Male Dramatic Performance for his role as Scott Drinkwell.

EastEnders' Rudolph Walker won the Outstanding Achievement Award and was seen being smothered with kisses by his onscreen daughter Diane Parish.

Jack P. Shepherd won the Best Actor prize as Corrie's winning streak continued, and got some giggles as he forgot his pal Ben Price's name, calling him "What's his chops."
