EastEnders won Most Popular Serial Drama at the 2008 National Television Awards last night.
The show was broadcast live on ITV. As usual the cast spokesperson, Barbara Windsor – who plays Queen Vic Landlady Peggy Mitchell – praised all the soaps, despite the fact only EastEnders and Hollyoaks have been worthy of any awards this year.
“It’s a good feeling – it feels better than sex,” she told reporters. She also commented that “Hollyoaks is coming along, isn’t it?” and threw some support at the dire Emmerdale by branding it “great.” Er, I think you mean grates Babs.
Congratulations to the BBC and all the EastEnders crew.
