Coronation Street has been awarded the award for the best serial drama at the National Television Awards.
All of the cast where on stage to receive the award but it was David Neilson who plays Roy Cropper who spoke as he told the audience:
"The reaction to shows like ours and EastEnders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks - they create a feeling of community."Occasionally you get a huge reaction from a story and you realise how important these shows are because when people laugh together, cry together you get community."
With the storyline with Hayley Cropper their is no wonder why it won this award!
