EastEnders and Coronation Street have been unveiled as this year's top shows in the All About Soap Bubble Awards.

Of the eight trophies, BBC One's Walford soap landed five, while Coronation Street bagged three.

The remaining two of the Big Four UK serials - Emmerdale and Hollyoaks - failed to win any, alongside Australian soaps Home and Away and Neighbours.

EastEnders' actress Charlie Brooks accepted the 'Femme Fatale' award for her portrayal of vixen Janine Butcher. Speaking of her win, she said: "I love playing the bitch and it's great to have so many juicy storylines to sink my teeth into. Sometimes when I read the scripts I think, 'Can Janine really be doing this?' but she never fails to impress."

Meanwhile, Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan was handed the 'Celeb Style' trophy. "It especially means a lot because the award is voted for by the readers," she said. "I'm amazed I beat Katherine Kelly - she always looks amazing, so that's a real achievement."

This year's 'Fatal Attraction' title went to EastEnders lovers Christian and Syed, played by John Partridge and Marc Elliott. Partridge said: "Marc and I are absolutely thrilled to win this award. We want to thank everyone for their support."

Elliott jokingly added: "Obviously all those lingering looks are paying off! It's great to know people are behind the storyline and it's the perfect award for the characters to be honest – although I don't know which one of us is the bunny boiler!"

The remaining winners, as exclusively unveiled in the Daily Star, include Corrie's Tony Gordon (Gary O'Brien) as 'Smooth Criminal', EastEnders' Who Killed Archie? plot for 'Killer Secret' and Heather's 'Who's The Daddy?' storyline named 'Baby Drama' of the year.

Meanwhile, Albert Square's Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner) took the 'I'm A Survivor' title, while 'Bride And Doom' went to Corrie's Becky and Steve (Katherine Kelly and Simon Gregson).
