British Soap Awards: Kym Marsh wins Best Female Dramatic Performance


Kym Marsh, who plays Michelle McDonald in Coronation Street, has won the award for Best Female Dramatic Performance at the British Soap Awards 2017.

The awards bash was held at the Lowry theatre in Salford on Saturday 3 June.
Kym dedicated the award to her late son Archie in an emotional speech, saying: "This award I would like to dedicate to my son Archie and all those angel babies.

"Michelle and Steve's baby loss story was perhaps the most difficult thing I've had to do in my career," she continued. "It took us to places we didn't want to go to again but we did it because it's such an important story to tell."

I liked that unlike a lot of the actors...she actually stopped for people to take pics of her and looked disappointed that she could not stay longer when entering the building for the award show. Congrats to Kym. :-)

I can't really tell from any of the pics I've seen, can anyone tell me if Kym's hair is in an up-do or if she's got a short & sassy haircut?

Would've been nice of her to mention Archie's father, Jamie Lomas, who was also there with the Hollyoaks cast. It was a very moving speech.
