It’s been a clever night for Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon as she has taken divided the esteem for Best Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards, defeating foe from titans Lacey Turner (EastEnders), Danny Miller (Emmerdale) and her own co-worker Barbara Knox.
And her performances which have won commend have been tied in with one of the soap’s many controversial and discussed storylines ever. It saw Bethany Platt trapped in a dim sex ring but she bravely stood up to immorality Nathan Curtis in court, heading to him being jailed.
Now, as the issue of her distress continues, Bethany has taken up lapdancing as a pursuit in sequence to try and take control of her own physique and have a feeling of empowerment against men – but this could be set to explode on her massively.
Tonight, Lucy warned us not to design any happy storylines in the nearby future for Bethany but combined that she felt a outrageous honour over the critical issue led storyline that the show had tackled and lifted recognition around.
She said: ‘It’s been amazing, the categorical idea has been to lift as much recognition as probable and we consider we’ve finished that. People came up to me in the street and talked about their past passionate abuse and that’s been everything.’
Emmerdale was crowned Best Serial Drama on the night while EastEnders had the esteem for Best Newcomer, which went to Danny Walters.
