It's the end of the year so I thought some awards were in order. These are my own personal awards - other bloggers' views may (will) vary. I’ve followed the format of the British Soap Awards categories, and added some from the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party, as well as some of of my own. Without further ado, lazengentlemen, please put your hands together for (drum roll) Philip Schofield holding a large gold envelope....
