Emmerdale scoops every soap prize at TV Choice Awards

Emmerdale has scooped every soap prize at this year's TV Choice Awards, adding four new accolades to its trophy cabinet.

The ITV series was crowned best soap, while Ryan Hawley and Charlotte Bellamy were named best soap actor and actress and Sally Dexter best soap newcomer.

Emmerdale actress Charlotte Bellamy accepted the award on behalf of cast and crew. She said the accolade was testament to all the hard work everyone puts in everyday and that the cast were 'very proud and very honoured' to take the award back home to Yorkshire.

Their victories were announced at a glittering star-studded event at London's glamorous Dorchester Hotel.

ITV's Broadchurch was judged best drama series, with its stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman winning best actor and actress.
