EastEnders was named 'TV Soap of the Year' at this afternoon's (March 13) ceremony, which was held at Grosvenor House in London.
The Walford serial triumphed over rivals Coronation Street and Emmerdale, which had also been nominated in the category. Cast members Tameka Empson (Kim Fox) and Chucky Venn (Ray Dixon) were among those present to collect the award.
EastEnders' win is the first time that the show has secured a 'Best Soap' prize this year as Coronation Street came out on top at the National Television Awards and Broadcast Awards.

Driver, meanwhile, was awarded the 'TV Soap Personality' prize posthumously in recognition of her 43-year stint playing Coronation Street barmaid Betty Williams.
The popular actress passed away at the age of 91 last October following a period of ill health. Coronation Street fans will see a screen send-off for her character next month when Weatherfield's residents hear that the Rovers favourite has died.
EastEnders' Jo Joyner (Tanya Jessop) and Emmerdale's Chelsea Halfpenny (Amy Wyatt) had also been in the running for the 'Soap Personality' prize.
