The British Soap Awards 2023 presenter change, winners in full and start and finish time

The British Soap Awards will return to ITV for 2023 on Tuesday, June 6 with presenter Jane McDonald at the helm. The star took over hosting duties from Phillip Schofield who recently stood down from This Morning and later quit ITV altogether after revealing he'd had an affair with a younger colleague.

The ceremony took place at The Lowry in Salford on Saturday, June 3, and saw Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders, Emmerdale, and Hollyoaks battle it out to win recognition for their work over the past year. Super soap fan Jane hosted the event after replacing Phil last minute. You can read more about Jane here.

Ahead of presenting the awards, former Loose Women star Jane said: "Oh my god…..everyone knows how much I LOVE my soaps, this year I’ve been honoured to be mentioned in Corrie, EastEnders, and Emmerdale, so this is just a dream come true. I can't wait to see all our wonderful soap nominees and celebrate all their hard work with them - roll on the awards, I can't wait!" For more showbiz and television stories get our newsletter here.
