'EastEnders' named Soap Of The Year 2009
Albert Square soap EastEnders has been named Digital Spy's Soap Of The Year by our readers for the second year in a row.

The BBC serial fought off heavy competition from Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks in what was a closely fought poll.

Speaking of the soap's win, executive producer Dierderick Santer said: "A massive thank you to everyone on Digital Spy who took the trouble to vote for us. It means a lot to us that we're still your number one soap."

He added: "We never take our audience's loyalty and support for granted and are very grateful for this lovely Christmas gift."

The public vote - in which thousands and thousands of members of the DS community participated - was open between Friday, October 30 and Sunday, December 6.
