SHANE SHINES IN BRITS' TV TRIUMPH.

SHINE on Alfie Moon! Shane Richie was named best soap actor last night at the prestigious Golden Rose TV festival.

His portrayal of the kindhearted EastEnders landlord wowed judges at the awards ceremony in the Swiss city of Lucerne.

It was just one of many British successes, with Ant & Dec leading the way after scooping a double honour. The Geordie lads won best Game Show host and best Variety awards for Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Take Away.

'Picking up not one but two awards is very special for us,' said Ant. 'We are really, really thrilled tonight.'

Brit winners included Harry Hill, who was named Best Comedy Actor for his TV Burp series, and the controversial Wife Swap programme, which was named Best Reality Show.

Others were Martin Freeman (Best Sitcom Actor); Creature Comforts (Best Comedy); Little Britain (Press Prize); My New Best Friend (Best Game Show) and Peep Show(Best Sitcom).

Double Oscar-winner actor Sir Peter Ustinov who died last month aged 82 was named the Charity Award winner.
