Coronation Street was the big winner at the British Soap Awards with Lucy Fallon picking up two goings for the show’s grooming storyline.
And the actress let her hair down at the after party – with some nifty moves on the dance floor.
Fallon, who was seen planting a kiss on her boyfriend Tom Leech, took home the best actress and best female dramatic performance prizes.
Another Coronation Street win went to Fallon’s on-screen uncle Jack P. Shepherd, whose character David Platt has been at the centre of a male rape storyline.
He collected the best actor prize.
In total Corrie hauled in six prizes at the ceremony at the Hackney Empire in east London, including the coveted best soap award, as its decision to take on harrowing storylines was recognised.
Fallon’s character, Bethany Platt, was groomed by the evil Nathan Curtis who forced her and a number of other girls to have sex with his friends during a series of sordid episodes.
McIntyre beat EastEnders Jake Wood who lost in five of the six categories he was nominated for.
Channel 4’s Hollyoaks collected four prizes, including best male dramatic performance for Ross Adams category and the best storyline for Lily’s self harm.
And its stars – including Kirsty-Leigh Porter, Nicola Thorp and Jessica Ellis – partied into the night to celebrate their victory.
Joining them at the frontline of the after-party was Emmerdale’s Gillian Kearney, who abandoned her high heels midway through the night.
Both Loose Women’s Sherrie Hewson and Hollyoaks’ Jessica Ellis were the victims of unflattering paparazzi snaps as they shuffled between venues.
And Shayne Ward showed off his impressive vocal skills, which won him The X Factor in 2005, on the dancefloor too.
