Stephanie Davis so 'grateful' for British Soap Awards nomination

Share article:

Stephanie Davis is feeling "really grateful" after she was named among the British Soap Awards nominees.

The "Hollyoaks" star - who plays Sinead Shelby on the Channel 4 soap - is one of 15 stars on the longlist for the Best Actress accolade, alongside her fellow "Oaks" stars Harvey Virdi (Misbah Maalik), and Lauren McQueen, whose character Lily McQueen will be killed off from the show this week.

Speaking in an Instagram video, Stephanie - who returned to the soap last year after overcoming alcohol issues - said: "I'm doing a video basically to say I've been nominated for Best Actress at the British Soap Awards and I can't believe it,

"I'm feeling really grateful right now. Those of you who have followed my journey will understand, from a year ago to now I cannot believe where I am and how far I've come.

"I'm back doing what I love. I'm happy and I'm acting again. And now I've been nominated for best actress."

Stephanie will do battle with Bhavna Limbachia - whose "Coronation Street" character Rana Habeeb was killed off last week - in a bid to make the shortlist, and the former "Corrie" star is "humbled" to receive a nod.
