Coronation Street actress Katherine Kelly has expressed her delight at being named 'TV Soap Personality of the Year' at yesterday's Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) Awards.

The 29-year-old, who plays Becky Granger in the Weatherfield soap, was nominated for the award alongside co-star Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald) and EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer (Bianca Jackson).

Speaking of her win, she told DS: "I'm absolutely thrilled with this award. Just to be nominated alongside Simon and Patsy was fantastic as I grew up watching them both on TV and loving their work. I can't believe that I won."

She added: "The trophy will probably spend about a month of my mum's mantelpiece and then it'll go to The Lamproom Theatre in Barnsley, where I'm a patron of the youth theatre."

She was seen leaving the ceremony with the large award hanging out of her relatively small handbag, before hauling the statue through Euston station to catch a Manchester-bound train home.
