Mark Charnock, Dominic Brunt and John Middleton, who play Marlon Dingle, Paddy Kirk and Ashley Thomas in the soap, were among those from the Emmerdale cast and crew who attended the ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Hotel to collect the award.
Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Livesy in the soap, was unable to attend the ceremony and Mark told him they were missing him.
Danny tweeted: “Yes get in! Emmerdale won best soap at Broadcast Awards! Get in lads. Well done!”
The soap has had a run of strong storylines in the last year including Aaron’s battle with his sexuality, Natasha Wylde’s murder, Jackson Walsh’s crash, Holly Barton’s drug problem and the village fire.
