A star-studded night at the TV Choice Awards ended with massive wins for the likes of Happy Valley, Emmerdale and Beyond Paradise. 

Virgin Radio Sunday afternoons host Tom Allen hosted the glittering telly affair tonight (Monday 12th February), which crowned Sally Wainwright's Happy Valley as Best Drama Series, while Sarah Lancashire won in the Best Actress category. Martin Clunes picked up the Best Actor equivalent for Doc Martin. 

Another show to win two prizes was Emmerdale. The long-running ITV series picked up Best Soap, while Jeff Hordley won his first TV Choice Best Soap Actor gong. 

Meanwhile, Death in Paradise spin-off Beyond Paradise landed Best New Drama. Speaking exclusively to virginradio.co.uk from the red carpet, lead actor Kris Marshall said: “It's a great honour…we're a new show. We came out last year and to be validated by the audience and also by the critics and the viewers, it’s just amazing.”

The Chase triumphed in the new category of Best Game Show, while I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! picked up their 18th Best Reality Show prize.
