Kym Marsh dedicates British Soap Awards win to late son

Kym Marsh dedicated her British Soap Awards win to her late son Archie.

The 40-year-old star - who plays Michelle Connor in "Coronation Street" - took home the Best Female Dramatic Performance at the annual ceremony on Saturday evening (03.06.17) for her emotional portrayal of a late-term miscarriage storyline after Michelle and her partner Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) lost their baby son Ruairi.

She said: "Thank you so much, this means so much to me. I just want to say I've been on Corrie for 11 years and it's been my biggest and best year yet and that's down to the amazing storylines I've been given.

"It took us back to places we never wanted to have to go to again but we had to do it, as we had to tell that story. As we are sitting here enjoying ourselves someone is losing their baby. I'm so proud of the show for telling the story in its entirety, reaching out to people and breaking the silence and the taboo.

"My wonderful children, David, Emily and Polly... you're the reason I smile everyday. I'd like to dedicate this to my son Archie."
