soaps

Coronation Street legend Anne Kirkbride is up for a British Soap Award nearly four months after her death.

The 60-year-old actress, who became a household favourite as Deirdre Barlow, died in January. She had starred in the ITV soap for 44 years.

Kirkbride (right) is nominated in the scene of the year category for the episode in which Deirdre threw a trifle.

The emotional episode saw her hurl the trifle at a wall before breaking down in the arms of husband Ken.

The 17th annual awards take place in Manchester on May 16.
