Coronation Street has been named best serial drama at the National Television Awards.
Receiving the award, David Neilson who plays Roy Cropper told the crowd: "The reaction to shows like ours and EastEnders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks - they create a feeling of community.
"Occasionally you get a huge reaction from a story and you realise how important these shows are because when people laugh together, cry together you get community."
