EastEnders retain soap crown

EastEnders has retained its crown as Best British Soap at the soap world's equivalent of the Oscars.

The show, which recently caused controversy with its baby-swap storyline, beat off the competition to win the award for the fourth year in a row.

Despite missing out on the top prize, Coronation Street won nine awards.

The 50th anniversary live show which featured a tram crash won Best Single Episode and Spectacular Scene of the Year.
