Kym Marsh 'shocked' Coronation Street only up for one NTA
Kym Marsh has confessed she's shocked 'Coronation Street' has only been nominated for one prize at the National Television Awards next week
Kym Marsh is "shocked" 'Coronation Street' is only up for one National Television Award.
The 38-year-old actress - who plays Michelle Connor on the soap - insists claims show bosses were "seething" at the snub are not accurate but she admitted she feels the show deserved more recognition.
She said: "According to a report, 'Coronation Street' bosses are seething over our lack of National TV Awards nominations, only being up for Best Serial Drama later this month.
"I wouldn't say anyone is seething, but I am personally a little shocked. However, last year we took everything! It's swings and roundabouts, no one's crying into their tea in the Green Room about it...
"People think there's more of a rivalry between soaps than there is - we do watch them and appreciate how hard everyone works."
Despite her shock, Kym insists awards don't really matter.
She said: "Awards are nice, but day to day it's about ratings and we're a very consistent soap."
And the brunette star is confident the soap's storylines will continue to win acclaim in the future.
She added to OK! magazine: "Although the Steve McDonald [Simon Gregson] depression storyline has been really well received, it was probably a bit late for the voting, so maybe it will get something another time."
