Coronation Street was top soap at the 2007 British Soap Awards. The ITV1 soap won seven out of the 16 awards available. Hollyoaks won three awards, while Emmerdale and Doctors won two awards each. BBC soap Eastenders managed to walk away with just one award.
BBC execs have complained that the British Soap Awards panel had an unfair number of representatives from ITV.
A BBC source told the Daily Star Sunday, "The panel isn't fair. It's made up of executives from ITV as well as critics and representatives from each soap. But there isn't much impartiality and a lot of the voting is tactical. It's a bit of a fix."
However an awards spokesman insisted: "It's a fairly-weighted panel. The other categories are all viewer voted."
