Soap hunks Adam Thomas and Danny Miller couldn’t stop themselves when fielding questions after Emmerdale beat EastEnders to win best serial drama.
The pair were in fits of giggles as they joined some of their co-stars from the ITV soap, with Danny Miller – who plays Aaron Livesy – demanding to know where Lacey Turner was.
Adam was then asked what it meant for the soap after winning the huge award, beating off competition from the normal favourites – EastEnders and Coronation Street.
“Not gonna lie, it would have felt a little better if my brother (Ryan Thomas) was still in Corrie but he left,” Adam laughed.
He then added: “It’s a special night tonight, especially as I won two awards, one for the Jungle and one for Emmerdale.”
Aaron could be seen almost collapsing in a fit of giggles behind a very proud Adam, who plays Adam Burton.
“Is Lacey Turner here?” Danny asked after losing to the EastEnders actress for the best serial drama performance.
“Danny’s a little bit upset that he didn’t win his award tonight,” Adam laughed. “But congratulations to Lacey Turner.”
Emmerdale fans are rejoicing after the show “finally” beat EastEnders at the National Television Awards.
For years, the BBC One soap has dominated the NTAs , taking home the Serial Drama award a number of times.
But this year, it was ITV’s Emmerdale that picked up the coveted prize.
Loose Women’s Penny Lancaster and Ayda Field announced the shock victory as the Yorkshire-based soap claimed the gong over EastEnders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks.
Actor Danny Miller celebrated my necking his drink then dabbing in the aisle.
The stars of rival soaps and people in the audience rose to their feet in a standing ovation as cast members and creatives behind Emmerdale took to the stage as the show’s theme music played.
Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain Dingle, said: “Wow thank you so much, this is a first for us. This is a first and we are so, so grateful. Thank you to everyone who voted, it means a lot.
“I’d like to start by thanking our brilliant, superb crew, who work so many more hours than us, that’s for you that one Rob, you really do, and also the entire writing time for giving us such brilliant stories, and also to our brilliant producer who’s probably hiding back there, Mr Iain Macleod.”
