British Soap Awards 2018 Winners

This year saw The British Soap Awards celebrate their 20th anniversary and for the first time ever the ceremony was shown live on ITV.

Coming live from the Hackney Empire in East London the night was hosted by the awards' longest serving presenter Phillip Schofield and hosts for awards on the night included Strictly judge Shirley Ballas, Benidorm royalty Tony Maudsley and Sherrie Hewson, original host of The British Soap Awards Richard Madeley and Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless better-known as Cagney and Lacey.

Other hosts were Danny Jones, Milo Parker and Daisy Waterhouse, Stacey Solomon and Andrea McLean, Danny John-Jules, Louise Redknapp, Tony Hadley, Baroness Floella Benjamin, Wendy Craig, Sally Lindsay, Brian Capron, Ranvir Singh and Brooke Kinsella and Maggie Oliver.

It was a fantastic night for Coronation Street, winning the most awards, with six wins including the one everyone wants, Best British Soap and two awards for Lucy Fallon.

Hollyoaks had a fantastic night winning four awards, their best result since 2014 and Doctors walked away with two awards, their best result since 2010 when they also won twice.

Emmerdale had a surprisingly less strong night walking away with only two awards including a special Greatest Moment award created for the 20th anniversary year. They won for the Hotten bypass crash of 2016.

The awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Greatest Moment and Best British Soap are the only ones to be voted for by the public. The other awards are decided by a panel of judges apart from The Tony Warren Award and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
