That's what we call cleaning up!
Remember when EastEnders and Coronation Street would always scoop all the soap prizes at awards ceremonies? Those days are long gone. Last night, Emmerdale continued its winning streak by claiming victory in every single soap category at the TV Choice Awards.
Last year the ITV show won Best Soap and Best Actor for Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Dingle. This year they did twice as well, by impressively bagging all four awards they were up for.
As well as Best Soap, the Dales drama won Best Actor for Ryan Hawley who superbly plays bad boy Robert Sugden.
Charlotte Bellamy, who plays the long-suffering Laurel Thomas, followed up her British Soap Awards victory by deservedly taking home the prize for Best Actress. Accepting her award, she acknowledged the 350 people who work on Emmerdale.
Lastly, Sally Dexter won Best Newcomer for her role as mischievous Faith Dingle. Not a bad haul for the Yorkshire contingent at all. Emmerdale is definitely on a roll and is no longer seen as ‘the third soap’ in Britain.
Meanwhile, Corrie sportingly congratulated their younger sibling on their awards haul:
