Congratulations to Neighbours for their victory! And thanks to readers for voting.


Channel 5's Commissioning Editor, Greg Barnett, told us after Neighbours' win: "It’s an absolute thrill to see Neighbours win each and every one of the awards - thank you RT fans! The Finn’s Revenge storyline champions a united push between producer and broadcaster to deliver something unmissable for viewers and pin-points Neighbours as an essential part of Channel 5’s programming schedule . To see the talent and the series win is a further testament to the hard work of the cast and crew and indicates the huge affection Britain still has for it 35 years on. We couldn’t be more delighted."
