“So @BAFTA not only disrespected the achievements of #CoronationStreet and soaps in general, and all soap fans, but they also dismissed the memories of Sophie Lancaster and her mother Sylvia, who campaigned for recognition and justice for her murdered daughter. Shameful. #baftas,” a Corrie fan moaned on social media as the show played out on BBC One.
