The show has won the big award – Best British Soap – six times, coming second only to EastEnders who have taken it home 11 times.

But which actors, actresses and storylines have won big?

Here’s a look at the most awards in Corrie history.

David Neilson and Julie Hesmondhalgh lead the Corrie pack when it comes to awards.

Roy and Hayley Cropper won the hearts of a nation of Street fans when they met in 1998 and overcame numerous obstacles in their union due to Hayley being transgender.

They had already won Best Partnership twice at the Soap Awards, once in 1999 and once in 2004, before their third, and most poignant, win.

In 2014, Hayley took her own life following a diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer. The storyline not only won them the partnership award for a record third time, but David received the Best Actor accolade, Julie took home Best Actress, and they won Best Single Episode for Hayley’s death and Best Storyline for her cancer battle.

In total, the pair have won eight British Soap Awards, with six of them coming for Hayley’s devastating exit.

Brian Capron played the cobbles first serial killer, Richard Hillman, who was responsible for three deaths: Duggie Ferguson, Patricia Hillman, and Maxine Peacock.

He was married to Gail Platt and when she discovered what he’d done, things took a dramatic turn as he kidnapped her and her kids Sarah Louise Platt and David Platt, and drove them into the canal in a bid to kill them all, and himself.

Only Richard perished though, and the exit netted the cast an impressive seven awards between them at the 2003 ceremony.

Brian won Best Actor, Villain of the Year, and Best Exit, while steely Audrey Roberts’ actress Sue Nicholls bagged Best Dramatic Performance as well as Hero of the Year. The storyline itself won Spectacular Scene of the Year, and Best Storyline.

Tracy Barlow is not a woman to be messed with and she proved that when she found out her evil boyfriend Charlie Stubbs was cheating on her in 2007.

She set up a whole plot to make everyone believe he was abusive towards her, then whacked him over the head with a statue in cold blood. Her story of self-defence didn’t wash though, and she ended up in prison for murder, but returned in 2009 when a mis-trial was declared.

The story won the soap three awards, with actress Kate Ford taking home Best Actress, and the revenge plot winning Best Storyline, while Bill Ward (Charlie) was awarded Best Exit.
