Martyn Hett honoured with Attitude Pride Award

Martyn Hett has been honoured with a posthumous award from Attitude Pride.

The PR Manager, former Attitude contributor and friend of the Coronation Street Blog, was one of 22 innocent people who tragically lost their lives in Manchester earlier this year when a suicide bomber detonated a device outside an Ariana Grande concert.

“With Martyn, we were both sad old cows who loved soaps,” joked his boyfriend Russell Hayward, who got matching Ken and Deirdre tattoos with Martyn during one particularly joyous night on the town a few years ago. “He taught me not to be embarrassed about what you like.”

Martyn was also a massive Mariah Carey fan, and the iconic diva reached out to his family after being told of his passing, and even sent a special live message during his funeral.

“Never waste a second of your life,” said Russell. “Don’t say no to any plans. Be yourself.”

He seemed such an inspirational guy, with such a happy expressional face. I am so sorry for his family and loved ones.
