  Corrie and Gervais grab TV Baftas
Updated 19 April 2004, 07.17
The Coronation Street cast
Coronation Street walked away with a TV Bafta, at a soggy, red-carpet ceremony in London on a wet Sunday night.

It beat Holby City, Casualty and The Bill to take the best continuing drama prize. EastEnders was not even nominated, in what was a new category.

There were no celebrations for Ant and Dec though, whose Saturday Night Takeaway and Pop Idol won nothing.

The night really belonged to Ricky Gervais, who won two Baftas for The Office, including best sitcom.

Ricky won for David Brent
The comedian also picked up the prize for best comedy performance for his character David Brent, the cringe-worthy boss of an office. He has won it three times now.

"I've got six Baftas now," he said. "I don't know if that's a record, but if it is I want to go on Record Breakers."

He almost missed out on the awards completely after a mistake in the nominations paperwork meant his name was left out.

Other winners included the Rugby World Cup on ITV, which was named best TV sport moment.
