'EastEnders' has won a number of prizes at the TV Choice Awards at the London Hilton, including the gong for Best Soap
'EastEnders' were the big winners at tonight's (08.09.14) TV Choice Awards at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
The ever-popular BBC One show was crowned the Best Soap, with Danny Dyer - who plays the role of Mick Carter - also named Best Soap Actor.
What's more, the Best Soap Actress prize was handed to his cast-mate Lindsey Coulson, who features as Carol Branning.
Speaking before the awards, Adam Woodyatt - who plays Ian Beale on the show - told BANG Showbiz: "I'll be happy [if we win the award] but to be fair, all the soaps - we all work hard. So if somebody else wins it fair play. If we win it, well done us."
Adam, the show's longest-running character, also said he loves working on the programme, explaining: "I've had a lot of fun. I've got to work with some fantastic people and made some incredible friends."
Elsewhere in the category, Kirsty-Leigh Porter of 'Hollyoaks' was named Best Soap Newcomer for her role as Leela Lomax, while Hayley's Cancer in 'Coronation Street' was named Best Soap Storyline.
