Millie Gibson Wins Best Young Performer at the British Soap Awards 2022

Coronation Street star Millie Gibson pulled out all the stops on Saturday as she wowed in a white satin gown at The British Soap Awards at London's Hackney Empire.

And it was a big night for the 17-year-old actress, who plays Kelly Neelan in the ITV soap, as she took home the coveted Young Performer award.

She cut a glamorous figure in her Grecian-style dress, teaming the number with 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 adding a pop of color 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 canceled 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.
