British Soap Awards 2013: Coronation Street wins Best Storyline – acceptance speech video

See Natalie Gumede, Alan Halsall and Jennie McAlpine pick up their prize

If you can’t wait until 8pm on ITV to see Coronation Street scoop Best Storyline at this year’s British Soap Awards, then here’s footage of Alan Halsall, Natalie Gumede and Jennie McAlpine taking to the stage in Manchester. Halsall paid special tribute to the writers of the soap for the “gift of a story” that saw his character Tyrone Dobbs suffer domestic abuse at the hands of partner Kirsty Soames. The plotline saw off competition at last night’s ceremony from EastEnders (the demise of Derek Branning), Doctors (Sam’s assisted suicide), Hollyoaks (Esther’s bullying) and Emmerdale (Zak’s depression).
