Stars of the small screen step out for the TV Quick and TV Choice awards.
Katherine Kelly who plays Becky in Coronation Street is all smiles as she clutches her trophy at the TV Quick and TV Choice awards. She was named best soap actress.
Ant and Dec were the big winners of the night collecting awards for best talent show (for Britain's Got Talent), best entertainment show (for Saturday Night Takeaway) and an outstanding contribution award.
Ali Bastian from The Bill told Newsbeat she's feeling nervous about her upcoming debut on Strictly Come Dancing and admitted she's been busy practising her moves on the set of the police show.
Emma Rigby from Hollyoaks (Hannah Ashworth) was also at the awards, which took place at central London's posh Dorchester Hotel. However, it was EastEnders that ended up winning the best soap category.
The BBC One show also picked up the best storyline prize for Danielle and Ronnie's story. Steve McFadden (who plays Phil) turned up with actress Daniella Westbrook, who's returning to Albert Square as his sister Sam Mitchell.
Billie Piper looked classy in a white jacket and black trousers. The 26-year-old is due to again take up her role as Doctor Who's assistant Rose in David Tennant's last two episodes. They'll be on TV at Christmas.
Looking pretty friendly for a pair of dragons, multi-millionaires Theo Paphitis and Peter Jones share a joke as they get snapped by photographers. Rival business show The Apprentice won the award for best reality show.
Gemma Atkinson chose an eye-catching dress as she crammed in two award ceremonies in one evening. The former Hollyoaks girl is pictured here at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year awards. She then headed over to the TV awards for the champagne party.
