NTAs: Corrie fans celebrate huge triple win for soap

Coronation Street fans have taken to social media to congratulate the longest running soap’s triple win at the National TV Awards.

Coronnation Street has swept the board at the National Television Awards, claiming all three soap prizes on offer.

It comes after they did exactly the same at the TV Choice awards, proving that the show is on absolute top form.

The soap beat off competition from EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks to win Best Newcomer, Best Dramatic Performance and Best Serial Drama.

Mollie Gallagher was emotional as she accepted her award ‘on behalf of all of those people who don’t fit the mould.’

Fans are delighted!

Amazing im so proud of everyone …ive watched this with my mum for 50 years sadly shes gone now ❤❤❤

They managed to balance the lighter material with the darker material and created some new classic characters in 12 months.

So well deserved.

Honestly deserved. Well done Corrie. https://t.co/VmRNM2ahv1

Corrie has been praised for huge storylines including a hate crime story which focused on the death of Seb after his girlfriend was violently confronted over being a goth.

And the major Geoff and Yasmeen story provided stunningly powerful court scenes, which were showcased at the awards.

The newcomer prize went to child star Jude Riordan, who expertly plays the endearing son of Nick Tilsley’s – the astronomy loving Sam.
