EastEnders was the most successful show in the 2011 All About Soap Bubble Awards, securing three out of the eight available prizes, it has been announced.

Walford favourites Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie were the big winners as their return to Albert Square was backed as the 'Best Comeback' of the year, their baby swap storyline with Samantha Womack (Ronnie Branning) was voted 'Best Baby Drama' and Wallace was named 'Best Actress' for her portrayal of Kat Moon.

Speaking of the 'Best Actress' result, Wallace commented: "I'm hugely grateful to everyone who voted for me. I'm so pleased and it really means a lot."

Discussing the return of the Moons, Richie added: "We knew how well-loved Kat and Alfie were before and we wanted to be true to that. So it's fantastic to know the viewers love them as much as we do!"

Coronation Street and Emmerdale followed closely behind EastEnders in the final results, picking up two awards each. For Corrie, the 50th anniversary tram crash disaster was named 'Best Stunt' and Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) triumphed in the 'Best Celeb Style' stakes.

Emmerdale's winners were Danny Miller (Aaron Livesy) for the 'Best Actor' award and Marc Silcock (Jackson Walsh) for 'Best Newcomer'.

Finally, Hollyoaks managed to win one prize as Kieron Richardson, Emmett Scanlan and Alice Barlow secured the 'Best Love Triangle' award for the Ste, Brendan and Rae storyline.

Soap fans voted in their thousands for the awards and the next issue of All About Soap, which goes on sale on Tuesday, will include a special free mini-magazine containing exclusive pictures and interviews with the winners.

All About Soap's editor Johnathon Hughes said: "We're thrilled with the huge response to this year's All About Soap Bubble Awards - it's a chance for soap fans to have their say and we received more votes than ever.

"The public clearly love having Kat and Alfie back behind the bar of the Queen Vic, and despite the controversy, the baby swap story helped them to win three awards. Corrie's epic tram crash was a hit with readers, and the ongoing stories of Aaron and Jackson in Emmerdale and Ste's fling with Brendan in Hollyoaks also proved popular.

"The Bubbles has kicked off 2011's soap awards season in style, and with May's British Soap Awards just around the corner, it will be interesting to see if the results agree with what All About Soap's readers think!"
