Emmerdale wins best soap at the British Soap Awards 2022

Emmerdale and EastEnders were the big winners of the night with four awards a-piece.

Emmerdale was named ‘Best British Soap’ at the British Soap Awards 2022.

The ceremony was held tonight (11th June) at the Hackney Empire in London, and was shown on ITV between 8pm and 10pm.

ITV’s Emmerdale had a strong showing in the viewer-voted categories with Paige Sandhu – malevolent Meena Jutla – winning the award for ‘Best Leading Performer’.

The viewers also picked the Dingles as their favourite family, while the soap awards panel awarded Mark Charnock ‘Best Dramatic Performance’ for his portrayal of Marlon’s stroke.

Original EastEnder Letitia Dean aka Sharon Watts won this years’ ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award, which was presented to her by her on-screen mum Anita Dobson. Letitia dedicated the award to her late father noting that he had passed away recently.

The panel also favoured EastEnders’ nominees in the newcomer, partnership and comedy categories – with Ross Boatman, Lacey Turner & Gillian Wright and Tameka Empson winning gongs respectively.

Millie Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan in Coronation Street, won the award for ‘Best Young Performer’, while Maximus Evans – bad boy Corey Brent in the saga – scooped the award for ‘Villain Of The Year’.

This years’ Tony Warren Award for contribution to soap went to Coronation Street scriptwriter Jan McVerry.

Best storyline went to Hollyoaks for Misbah’s Historic Rape, while a portion of the storyline picked up ‘Scene of the Year’. Doctors picked up one award for ‘Best Single Episode’ for an instalment entitled Three Consultations and a Funeral.
