Coronation Street has picked up the top soap prize at this year's RTS Programme Awards.

The Weatherfield serial triumphed in the 'Soap and Continuing Drama' category at Tuesday night's (March 20) event, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

EastEnders, which received the honour last year, had also been in the running for the gong alongside Emmerdale.

Coronation Street is currently enjoying a successful year for prizes as the programme has already been named 'Best Soap' at the National Television Awards and Broadcast Awards in recent weeks.

EastEnders was, however, named 'TV Soap of the Year' at the TRIC Awards a week ago.

The RTS Awards are determined by a panel of judges to honour excellence in television each year.
