The Walford soap's final award came in the shape of 'Best Storyline' for the revelation of Max and Stacey's affair at Christmas.

Weatherfield actress Alison King scooped the award for 'Best Bitch' for her portrayal of factory owner Carla Connor, with her screen sister-in-law Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) picking up the trophy for 'Best Dressed Soap Star'.
