It's 10 years ago this month that Jamie Borthwick first arrived in 'EastEnders' as Jay Mitchell. Since then, he's had all manner of drama to contend with – the untimely death of his dad, Jase, getting charged with grooming underage girlfriend Linzi and, more recently, dabbling in the murky world of drug dealing.
'What's On TV' caught up with actor to talk about his highlights from the past decade. One of the questions was about his feelings when he received the British Soap Opera, and this is what he had to say:
"I've always said that I won't judge my career on my awards, but it's a nice bonus when you win, and this is still on the mantelpiece. I was up against my old mate Brooke Vincent from Corrie and I was shaking like a leaf when I won. I had a pink tie on and I can remember that Hannah Spearritt from S Club 7 was one of the people who presented it to me. I dedicated it to my grandmother, who had just died, and we had a party afterwards at my parents' pub".
