  Corrie cleans up British Soap Awards
Updated 10 May 2003, 23.49

Coronation Street ended EastEnders' three year reign at the British Soap Awards.

The ITV series not only won the main gong for Best British Soap, but picked up eight other awards including Best Storyline and Best Actor.

And if it was Corrie's big night, then the man of the moment was Brian Capron, who played looney killer Richard Hillman.

He spent loads of time on stage with hosts Des O'Connor and Melanie Sykes, collecting five awards, including Villain of the Year, Best Actor and Best Exit.

Record breaker

That's the most gongs that any one person has won at the awards.

Capron was shocked to hear he had broken the record - "I didn't even know what the record was!"

But EastEnders didn't lose out entirely, with Sexiest Male and Sexiest Female going to its stars Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace, who play Alfie and Kat.
