British Soap Awards: Corrie's awards in full

The British Soap Awards 2016 were held last night in that London at the Hackney Empire.

Look away now if you don't want to know which awards Coronation Street won because they are detailed below - with pictures!

Still not ready to look away? 

Have a look at the red carpet pics of the Corrie cast in their best bib and tucker here.

The British Soap Awards will be screened tonight - Sunday 29 May - on ITV at 8pm.

Here are the awards that Coronation Street won last night.

Sally Dynevor and Joe Duttine won Best On-Screen Partnership for Tim and Sally.

Connor McIntyre won Villain Of The Year award for Pat Phelan.

Patti Clare won Best Comedy Performance for her role as Mary Taylor and Malcolm Hebden (Norris Cole) collected the award on her behalf.

There was a new award this year at the British Soap Awards. It's The Tony Warren Award (Off-Screen) and was awarded to Coronation Street's former Casting Director James Bain, who  passed away recently. The award was presented by Charlie Lawson (Jim McDonald).

If you'd like to see all of the winners from the awards bash, they're listed at various places online and we've chosen to link to the easy to read list at Radio Times.

Interestingly Corrie won none of the shortlisted categories in which fans voted. These were Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Soap.  Also, Corrie won nothing for their nominated #CorrieLive and Callum's death episodes and storylines.  The winners above were all chosen by the Soaps Awards panel.

However, when you see which soap did win Best Soap at the awards last night, it does bode well for the future of our favourite show. Come on, Kate Oates, take us to glory next year!

I'm kind of glad it was a relatively poor show for Corrie, on the whole it's been a terrible couple of years or so, especially the Year of the Platts which felt like it might never end. So yes, Emmerdale winning does, I hope, bode well...

Tim and Phelan are my favourite characters (along with Jenny) so I'm glad for those guys!

I wish Richard Hawley had been nominated for Best Soap Newcomer. Johnny has been interesting and full of life since the day he showed up; Aidan is a plonk in tight shirts. Just because you're young and pretty doesn't mean you are talented. The lady from Eastenders who did win is not young; be braver next time, Corrie.

Feel bad for Jack P Shepard - he was amazing as David and showed it in so many ways: as a caring father, supportive brother, snarky son,... Maybe if his stories were separated from supremely unlikely megaevents, he'd have a chance.

I can't believe that Elle Mulvaney (Amy Barlow) didn't win her category, as she has been superb.

Fair play to Corrie, Phelan's villainy is down to the scriptwriters and his storyline. However, comedy performances are always down to the actor whether solo or in partnerships. Sally D and Joe D built a rapport that delivered magic from a fairly ordinary script. It was only when the writers understood their appeal that they gave them *funny* scenes. Corrie were very lucky to get 2 out of the 3 awards.
