Former ‘EastEnders’ boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins has called for greater representation of minorities at the British Soap Awards.

Dominic - who helmed some of the biggest ‘EastEnders’ storylines of the past three years, before stepping down from his executive producer role earlier this year - called out the awards show, after all of this year’s winners were white.

Taking to Twitter after the ceremony aired on Sunday night, he wrote: “Massive congratulations to all this year's winners - but next year… DIVERSITY PLEASE.”

This year’s Soap Awards saw several victories for ‘EastEnders’, with Lacey Turner scooping Best Actress and Best Female Dramatic Performance for her portrayal of Stacey Branning, while her character’s psychosis story arc was also awarded Best Storyline.

However, it was ‘Emmerdale’ who were the big winners of the night, taking home the coveted Best British Soap prize.
