Danny Dyer won Best Actor for his role as Mick Carter in 'EastEnders'

Danny Dyer was named Best Actor for his portrayal of Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter and the Carters also won Best Family.

Danny's win comes just weeks after he collected the Best Soap prize for 'EastEnders' at the TV Choice Awards but hit the headlines when he appeared to manhandle Mary Berry on stage after one too many.

But after picking up his latest award he said he was on his best behaviour this time.

“After my last turn out I've got to behave myself," he said. "It's weird as we've done it back to front this time, as this time I knew I had won.

“I wish that was the case last time as I wouldn't advise anyone to accept an award off your head. It was a nice feeling when I woke up the next morning and there was an award by my bed and I thought, 'I done it!'"

There was also an award for Lauren Branning who was named Sexiest Female.

The pregnant actress was unable to attend but said of her award: “It’s quite nice to have that kind of label considering I’m pregnant, it’s fabulous!

“I think this has been my favourite year at EastEnders, it’s been really, really fun. It's been nice to be a part of it of it all – it's a nice feeling. And there's so much exciting stuff coming up!”
