'The Great British Bake Off' was the surprise winner of Best Soap at a British soap awards ceremony last night.

The show was praised for its dramatic storylines - including the opening 'bloodbath' episode, Paul Hollywood's romantic subplot and the fight between Raymond Blanc and finalist Ruby Tandoh.

'The Great British Bake Off' beat off stiff competition from 'The X Factor' and 'Strictly Come Dancing' to bag the award - although the latter did win 'Sexiest Female' for Susannah Reid.
