British Soap Awards 2022: Coronation Street star Millie Gibson looks glamorous in a white satin gown


The British Soap Awards returned for another star-studded ceremony on Saturday, with host Phillip Schofield welcoming the great and good of the soap world to London’s Hackney Empire.

And Coronation Street star Millie Gibson pulled out all the stops for the event as she wowed in a slinky white satin gown while posing for snaps on the red carpet.

The actress, 17, who plays Kelly Neelan in the ITV soap cut a glamorous figure in her Grecian-style dress which featured a cowl neckline and a low back.

Millie teamed her outfit with a plethora of gold accessories including an ornate arm cuff, drop earrings and a collection of delicate necklaces and rings.

The TV personality styled her blonde locks in a chic half-up, half down style, while she added a pop of colour with a bold red lip. 

Millie was in great spirits as she smiled for the camera alongside her Corrie co-stars, with the soap up for several gongs on the night. 

The British Soap Award returned live to ITV for the first time in two years after the 2020 and 2021 ceremonies were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In its place in 2020, ITV instead aired a 60-minute special titled The British Soap Awards Celebrates 21 Years, narrated by long-running presenter Phillip Schofield.

This year, host Phillip Schofield, 60, welcomed a plethora of soap stars to London’s Hackney Empire, where they’ll battle it out to scoop prizes in 14 categories.

The awards are either voted for by a panel of expert judges or the public, with fans able to choose their favourites for Best British Soap, Best Leading Performer and Best Family categories.

Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this year that The British Soap Awards opted to axe the male and female categories.

Instead of Best Actor and Actress, stars from much-loved British soaps will battle it out for the newly-created new Best Leading Performer award. 

The move follows The Brits which scrapped gender classifications this year, with Adele beating Ed Sheeran to Artist of the Year. 

Past winners of the Best Actress award include Lucy Pargeter (who plays Chas Dingle in Emmerdale), Lucy Fallon (who plays Bethany Platt in Coronation Street) and Charlotte Bellamy (who plays Laurel Thomas in Emmerdale).

It follows the award for Sexiest Male and Female, voted by the public, being axed in 2015.

The five biggest soaps – Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks – will be battling it out to win recognition for their work over the past year. 

And after a stellar year of drama-filled storylines, the competition is set to be fierce.

Coronation Street will no doubt be hoping to scoop gongs for their harrowing hate crime storyline which saw Seb Franklin and Nina Lucas attacked, ultimately resulting in Seb’s death.

While over on Emmerdale, serial killer Meena Jutla’s long reign of terror could bag the Leeds-based soap an award or two.

Speaking of serial killers, EastEnders saw viewers on the edge of their seats as murderer Gray Atkins continued to avoid being arrested for his crimes – until justice finally caught up with him.

While Hollyoaks saw Summer Ranger (Rhiannon Clements) set out to destroy Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) for his role in her father’s death. 

Meanwhile Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) and his wife Karen’s (Jan Pearson) relationship was left in the balance in Doctors.
