Last night saw the final DrinkTank event of the year and the first annual DrinkTank awards. Many thanks to the hundreds-upon-hundreds of people that voted across all the categories – there was drama, emotion and some tears (mainly from Paul Walsh who was edged out by actual females) as the winners were revealed.
