Corrie scoop four gongs at Inside Soap Awards 2010

EastEnders won Best Soap and six other awards in this year's Inside Soap Awards, held this evening, Monday 27 September. So, what did that leave Coronation Street to win, then?

Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) was crowned Sexiest Female.

Craig Gazey (Graeme Proctor) was awarded Funniest Performance. He says, "It's a great honour to follow in the footsteps of last year's winner, the incredible Maggie Jones. Thank you to everyone who voted for me. The fact it's an award from viewers is very special. I keep my Best Newcomer Inside Soap award in the bathroom so that's where this one will be going!"

The award for Best Stunt went to Coronation Street. Alison King who plays Carla Connor says, "The factory fire scenes were some of the hardest I've ever done, they took four weeks to film and we were working with fire, which was especially dangerous. By the end of it all we felt like a little family though. Everyone worked so hard and they definitely deserve to win something. So thank you so much Inside Soap!"

Corrie also produced the evening’s youngest award winner, Alex Bain (Simon Barlow); this year sees him crowned Best Young Actor for the 2nd time.

I hope at long last that the producer and PR people at Granada/Corrie will now see sense and put up quality actors up for awards and allow the British public to decide for themselves rather than seeing the same old same old actors nominated who never win (no offense to Craig Gazey however - an exception, but still not the funniest current Corrie character - but young!).

We don't need to have the young ones up all the time and if Corrie is only interested in the sexiest person award - then what has become of our nationally treasured soap.

I also have to admit that EastEnders is better at the moment and it pains me to say it but it's true. Where oh where has the Corrie comedy gone that made it so unique. Please remember the quality actors we have that are being so underused. Thank you.

Sorry Corrie Boy but I disagree with you.

EE has had their pub blaze (and Phil has made a miracously recovery from drink and drugs and Peggy has left. They are now relying on returning characters, Kat and Alfie to put some entertainment in the scripts.

Last night's rampage by Natasha in Corrie is worthy of an award on its own.

There is far more humour and lightness in Corrie.

Why Simon Barlow? Find he over acts totally.
