At the British Soap Awards, EastEnders unquestionably triumphed, winning the prized Best Soap honour.
Under the direction of Chris Clenshaw, who has presided over what has evolved into a renaissance period for the programme, the BBC One serial drama has had a genuinely amazing year.
Hard-hitting and issue-raising issues are abundant, compelling and mostly character-driven plots are once again in the spotlight, and the introduction of a new family has given The Vic a brand-new dynamic.
Additionally, the return of well-liked characters like Sam Mitchell and Alfie Moon as well as the departure of other mainstays like Mick Carter and Janine Butcher have created several must-watch TV moments.
EastEnders received the coveted prize for this year’s Best Soap at the British Soap Awards thanks to the widespread support from home viewers who were enthralled by the show’s blatant quality increase.
If you can’t wait that long to witness EastEnders named the country’s finest soap of 2023, we have a little clip of the important occasion, just for you. The British Soap Awards will show on Tuesday, June 6 on ITV1.
The cast and crew of the well-known soap opera gathered on stage to claim the prize. Billy Mitchell actor Perry Fenwick accepted on behalf of himself and his coworkers and expressed their gratitude to the public for the honour.
He remarked, “Thank you to every single person who bothered to vote for us! We truly appreciate it and are overjoyed to bits!”
The audience applauded the impactful message.
EastEnders won three more awards in addition to Best Soap, with Best Leading Performer going to Danielle Harold, who portrayed Lola Pearce.
As fans are aware, Lola tragically passed away last week following a fight with a deadly brain cancer, in a plotline that won praise from critics.
The Best Villain award, which was also chosen by the audience, went to Aaron Thiara of the Ravi Gulati film. Lilly Slater, played by Lillia Turner, won the award for Best Young Performer.
