Coronation Street topped the Inside Soap Awards with a total of seven wins, including the top prize for Best Soap.
David Neilson of the ITV show, who plays Roy Cropper, won the award for best actor while Sally Carman, who plays Abi Franklin. was named best actress.
The show also won the award for best screenplay for its hate crime plot involving the characters Seb and Nina.
Inside Soap editor-in-chief Gary Gillatt said: “It’s the kind of intimate story – that brings us closer to an all-too-real tragedy – that packs a punch.”
The story showed that Seb and Nina were under attack due to Nina’s alternate identity and the ripple effect this has on their family and community.
The judges praised the show, which worked closely with the Sophie Lancaster Foundation on the screenplay, for tackling hard-hitting topics.
Best Newcomer went to Jude Riordan, who plays Sam Blakeman, and Dame Maureen Lipman was recognized for her funniest performance.
