'EastEnders' sweeps board at British Soap Awards
EastEnders has triumphed at this year's British Soap Awards, taking home gongs in all major categories.

In all, the show managed an impressive seven wins, including the most coveted award for best British soap.

Lacey Turner (Stacey Slater) was named best actress while Ross Kemp took best actor after returning to Walford as Grant Mitchell.

The Armistice Day episode - set in France and starring Shane Richie and Hilda Braid - was crowned the year's single best episode from any soap.

Coronation Street and Emmerdale each had four wins, while Hollyoaks walked away with two.

Soapstar Superstar winner Richard Fleeshman (Craig Harris) and Louisa Litton (Ruby Allen) were voted sexiest male and sexiest female.

Emmerdale's mine shaft storyline was acknowledged as the "most spectacular" of the year while Nicola Wheeler (Nicola Blackstock) took the honour of soap bitch of the year.

Hollyoaks had storyline of the year - for Justin and Becca's affair - and best young actor, which went to Ellis Hollins (Tom Cunningham).
