EastEnders stars Max Bowden, Danielle Harold and Shane Richie down drinks as they party after Inside Soap Awards | The Sun

THEY dominated the Inside Soap Awards – taking home six gongs out of a possible 15 – including the one for best soap.

So, it’s no surprise the EastEnders cast wanted to let their hair down after the ceremony.

Danielle Harold – who took home best actress for her performance as Lola Pearce-Brown – was spotted laughing alongside Max Bowden and Shane Richie outside the bash in London on Monday night.

Looking incredible, the actress wore a white suit and had her long blonde hair falling down her back.

She could be seen sipping on champagne, celebrating her success while Max, who plays Ben Mitchell, and Shane – Alfie Moon – were seen enjoying a catch up.

Lola died at home in May, with daughter Lexi by her side, following a brain tumour diagnosis last year.

The plot won best storyline and saw Isabella Brown, Lola's daughter Lexi, named best young performer, Jamie Borthwick, who plays Lola's husband Jay Brown, get best actor and Max Bowden (Lexi's father Ben Mitchell) secure soap superstar of 2023.

Elsewhere, Emmerdale's the Dingles were named best family, and Mark Charnock (Marlon Dingle) and Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk), won the best partnership award.

Paddy's suicide attempt and him attending a men's support group has been a storyline that has been tackled by the village-set soap as Marlon tries to get him to open up.

Coronation Street's Dame Maureen Lipman was awarded best comic performance, which was previously announced, for her role as Evelyn Plummer; and Todd Boyce was named best villain for his portrayal of Stephen Reid – the soap's serial killer.
