The British Soap Awards 2009

Who won – and wore – what at this year's British Soap Awards?

Britain’s top telly talent pulled on their gladrags for the British Soap Awards 2009 last night.

A whole host of soap stars from the likes of EastEnders, Hollyoaks, Coronation Street and Emmerdale lit up the red carpet with a series of colourful gowns – some successful, and others definitely not so!

Those who managed to pull it off included Patsy Palmer in a draped, one-shouldered navy number, which complemented her auburn locks, and Hollyoaks vixen Roxanne McKee, who looked like a 60s sex siren with bouffant, backcombed tresses and a smouldering silver mini.

In the not-so-successful section? A cluster of Hollyoaks alumni, including Hollie-Jay Bowes’ French maid gone wrong, Zoe Lister’s cut-out, yellow 80s nightmare, and Jorgie Porter’s prom-night-cum-bridesmaid’s dress disaster.

Awards-wise, the evening was a great success for EastEnders, who scooped the top prize, Best Soap, among seven other wins.

Barbara Windsor, who’s played Peggy Mitchell since 1994, also bagged a lifetime achievement honour.

 Other winners of the night included Coronation Street, who snapped up six awards, and daytime soap Doctors, which picked up three gongs.
