Britain's Got Talent picked up the gong for Best Talent Show beating The X Factor, while I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! was named Best Reality Show.

EastEnders dominated the soap awards with Shane Richie, who plays Alfie Moon, named Best Soap Actor, Tony Discipline winning the Best Newcomer gong for his role as Tyler Moon and the show as a whole was named Best Soap.

Only Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan, who plays Tina McIntyre, prevented them getting a clean sweep by being named Best Soap Actress.

There was also an Outstanding Contribution award for the cast and crew of Emmerdale in the year the soap celebrates its 30th anniversary.
