Last night it was the BAFTA TV Awards in that London. You can find out who won Best Continuing Drama (aka Best Soap) here.
The award for Best Actress went to Sarah Lancashire for her role in Happy Valley. Coronation Street fans will remember Sarah of course for her role as Raquel in our favourite show, although I doubt we'll ever see her back behind the bar of the Rovers again.
Sarah's win at last night's awards bash made me think about some of the other ex-Corrie stars who have gone on to do wonderful things in TV and film. So, along with Sarah Lancashire, here are four more of my favourite ex-Corrie stars who are still very much in the spotlight, still working hard and achieving enormous success.
Anne Reid, who played Valerie Barlow.

Suranne Jones, who played Karen McDonald
Katherine Kelly, who played Becky McDonald
And finally, Matthew Marsden who played Chris Collins
lack Hawk Down.
Which of your favourite ex-Coronation Street actors would you say have been most successful away from the Street?
