‘EastEnders’ actress Nina Wadia has won two honours at last night’s British Soap Awards.

Nina, who plays Zainab Masood in the BBC One soap, won ‘Best Comedy Performance’ and ‘Best On-screen Partnership’ with fellow actor Nitin Ganatra who plays Masood.

The Masoods family entered ‘EastEnders’ last April and have become an instant favourite on the Square. Their recent storyline has seen the introduction of new character Syeed Masood.

‘EastEnders’ was crowned best soap for the second year running – scooping a total of seven awards, one more than its closest rival ‘Coronation Street’.

The ceremony will be broadcast on Wednesday 18th May on ITV1 from 20:00.
