Coronation Street wins big at Inside Soap Awards as Jack P. Shepherd bags Best Actor for his harrowing rape storyline

The ITV soap knocked Emmerdale off the top spot, ending their three year run of success.

Over the past year, Coronation Street has taken on some incredibly challenging storylines, including Aidan Connor’s suicide and David Platt’s rape.

And they were repaid in votes from fans, who made sure the show’s stars were winners on the evening.

Jack P. Shepherd, who plays David, picked up the award for Best Actor, while Shayne Ward, who plays Aidan, was handed the Best Exit gong.

Connor McIntyre was given huge praise for his role as evil Pat Phelan and tonight was handed the award for Best Bad Boy.

His storyline and the moment Anna Windass returned to Weatherfield to kill him also won praise, with the pair bagging the gong for Best Shock Twist.

Simon Gregson picked up the Funniest Male award for his role as hapless lothario Steve McDonald.

While Dolly-Rose Campbell won the Funniest Female for her part as the hilarious kebab shop worker Gemma Winter.

Newcomer Mollie Winnard, who played evil Kayla Westbrook, also won praise for her short-lived stint on the cobbles.



She was handed the Best Bad Girl gong, with fans no doubt hoping that the award will secure her return to the soap.

Out of the other soaps, Jen Metcalfe was the only winner for Hollyoaks and picked up the Soap Superstar award.

It comes just months after she returned from maternity leave and will no doubt be the silver lining on a very exciting year.

Emmerdale’s Danny Miller was also honoured as a Soap Superstar for his role in the ITV drama.

His on-screen younger sister, played by Isobel Steele, won Best Young Actor for her role as Liv Flaherty in the dales.

EastEnders’ Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright were honoured for their amazing on screen chemistry and picked up the Best Partnership Award.

The BBC One soap also won praise for the shocking knife crime storyline involving Shakil and Keegan.
