'EastEnders' actor Marc Elliott thinks 'Emmerdale' should have won Best Serial Drama at last night's (26.01.11) National Television Awards.

The 31-year-old star - who plays Syed Masood in the BBC One soap - explained while he was thrilled for his show to have taken home the coveted accolade, he would have voted for its ITV1 rival.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "The competition was really strong this year but I really thought 'Emmerdale' would scoop it actually. I would have voted for those guys.

"Their storyline with Aaron (Danny Miller) and Jackson (Marc Silcock) has been just amazing and I honestly thought it would clinch it for them. Let's just hope I don't get told off for this!"

Meanwhile, Marc's co-star Lacey Turner - who won the gong for Most Outstanding Serial Drama Performance after bowing out of the soap in a dramatic Christmas storyline - admitted the award may be her last, as she is happy to say goodbye to her acting career.

When asked about her plans for the future, Lacey said: "Well, I started out with nothing so it doesn't matter if I end up with nothing."
