Woohoo!  Coronation Street has won the award for Best Serial Drama at this year's National Television Awards.

Serial Drama, is of course the posh name for Soap.

The awards were held tonight, Wednesday January 22nd 2014 in London.

Corrie producer Stuart Blackburn led a host of cast members onto the stage to collect the award.   

David Neilson (Roy Cropper) spoke first and said: "Thank you so much to everyone who voted, to everyone who didn't vote. The reaction to shows like ours and Emmerdale, Eastenders and Hollyoaks is that they create a feeling of community and 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 and this show is made by - we're the front of it, but -fantastic crew, the funniest people in the world but also the people who are the most professional and know when to give you a bit of quiet and know when it's serious and also the hallmark of this show, just wonderful, wonderful writing. And we're led by Stuart Blackburn who has been very brave in going for some very, very tough stories."

Stuart Blackburn followed up by saying: "Thank you so much for this. It's 53 years old this show. I'd like to thank everyone who's been in it, everyone's who in it, everyone who will be in it. It's come this after a fantastic year, so thank you the audience for voting. Thank you, everyone"

Well done to Coronation Street for this very well deserved award!

Very much deserved. Tonight's episode was brilliant and David Neilson was great! I thought tonight's episode was more emotional than Hayley's death I must say.

What?? Rob Donavon did not win Best Newcomer? His acting is Shakespearen, this must be fixed.
