Coronation Street win 7 awards at Inside Soap Awards 2021


Coronation Street almost swept the board at this year's Inside Soap Awards with 7 awards including Best Soap. Congratulations to them all!

The Corrie winners are as follows:

Best Actress - Sally Carman, Abi Webster, Coronation Street 

“This is ace. I’m just so happy to be getting these storylines – and to be recognised for doing a good job is the best feeling. The writing of the storyline was so beautiful, so it was an honour to be asked to deliver those words. The great thing about Corrie is that it feels like a different job one month to the next. One minute I’m filming in Kevin’s house, the next I’m in a film studio submerged in a sinkhole with a gun in my hand. Then I’m doing a scene with Dame Maureen Lipman. It’s just phenomenal to be paid to do this – so awards are a bonus!”

Best Actor - David Neilson, Roy Cropper, Coronation Street

“It’s lovely for me and Mollie that idiosyncratic characters such as Roy and Nina appeal so much to viewers. They can be seen as eccentric, but they are valued and loved – and that’s wonderful.”

Best Newcomer - Jude Riordan, Sam Blakeman, Coronation Street

Funniest Performance - Maureen Lipman, Coronation Street

“It’s wonderful to be funny in this day and age – and I’m as pleased as if I was 19. To come in at 75 years old and be named Best Newcomer in 2019 and now the funniest person in soap – it’s really, really nice. I think people wish they could say the sort of things Evelyn says, because most of us spend our lives holding our tongues!”

Best Partnership - Mollie Gallagher and David Neilson, Nina Lucas and Roy Cropper, Coronation Street

Best Storyline – Nina and Seb's hate crime horror, Coronation Street

Best Soap - Coronation Streett

Due to ongoing Covid restrictions required for TV production, full coverage of the Inside Soap Awards 2021 can be found in this week’s edition of Inside Soap magazine, including interviews with all the winners. The traditional presentation ceremony will return in 2022.

And people say Corrie is going downhill... I am personally pleased as they did a great job considering all the restrictions!

I totally agree, but a lot of people on here, don't see it like that, I'm afraid
