Corrie's Abi star Sally Carman supported by co-stars as she shares career news

Coronation Street's Sally Carman was congratulated by her co-stars as she shared some brilliant news leaving her 'over the moon'.

The actress, who plays  mechanic Abi Franklin in the ITV1 soap, posted a glamorous snap on social media clutching two awards.

She took one home for Best Performance in a Continuing Drama, and the second for Best Continuing Drama Storyline for Abi's Baby Battle.

Holding the glass gongs over her chest on Saturday, she flashed a huge smile for the camera as she celebrated the double dose of good news at the Royal Television Society North West Awards 2022.

She looked worlds away from troubled Abi at the lavish event at The Point in Manchester.

Fans, friends and Corrie co-stars were quick to congratulate her following the ceremony.

Sally Dynevor, Abi's on-screen pal Sally Webster, told her: "Fabulous Sal. Well done."

Sally Ann Matthews - Rovers landlady Jenny Connor - posted: "Yay!!! Well done gorgeous."

Kimberly Hart-Simpson, who plays Nicky Wheatley, penned: "You look beaut- congrats xxxx."

The 41-year-old actress joined Coronation Street in October 2017.

The actress has impressed viewers and critics by being at the heart of a number of gripping storylines, including the hate crime which saw her son Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) and his girlfriend Nina Lucas - played by Mollie Gallagher, 24 - attacked by a group of teenagers.

The show's fans were quick to recognise her achievement.

One told her: "Absolutely fantastic! Truly well deserved! That’s your contract extended, love and support you’ve got from your adoring fans continues."

Another said: "Congratulations! You're amazing! Proud to be from the same home town as you."

Sally recently tied the knot with co-star Joe Duttine, who plays cabbie Tim Metcalfe.

They got hitched after previously being forced to put their wedding plans on the back burner.

Discussing their relationship last year, Sally teased about what it is like working with her fiancé on the set of Coronation Street.

She said: "I hate working with him.

"He's a rotten man to work with because he makes me laugh to the point where I get that sweaty feeling because I can’t get a grip."
