The actress, who plays Nancy Carter, picked up the prize at last night's bash

Maddy Hill, the actress who plays Nancy Carter in BBC1’s EastEnders, picked up the British Soap Award for Best Newcomer at last night’s ceremony in London – and you can see her acceptance speech below.


Hill saw off competition from Charlie Clapham (Hollyoaks), Amy Kelly (Coronation Street) and Michael Parr (Emmerdale) at the star-studded bash at the Hackney Empire.

The Best Newcomer prize was one of two awards handed out to EastEnders, the other being an Outstanding Achievement (Off-Screen) trophy for Carolyn Weinstein, the soap’s Company Manager.

After taking to the stage, Maddy Hill thanked executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins and her on-screen family and added that her time on EastEnders had been “the best six months of my life”.


The British Soap Awards air tonight on ITV at 8.15pm.
