The Joni Awards - celebrating the worst of Coronation Street 2017

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog January 2018, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Our friends at the Coronation Street podcast, Conversation Street, have held their annual awards and the results are here.

And in addition to their usual awards, they also had a brand new awards segment in Episode 289 of the podcast: The Joni Awards!

Named after the Coronation Street character played by Sarah Harding, who is unforgettable for all the wrong reasons, the Jonis are a cheeky look at the less than stellar aspects of our favourite soap.

Unlike the usual awards which are open to the public vote, the categories in the Jonis were nominated and awarded by Michael and Gemma at Conversation Street. 

The lucky winners this year are as follows:

Worst new couple: Mary and Norris

Worst new character: Jude

Worst story: Brian's superstitions

Mardy Mare:  Anna Windass

Dirty Dog: Aidan Connor

Suspension of Disbelief:  Phelan's whisperings to Seb in his coma

Most Underused Character: Audrey

Most Boring Character: Alya

Build Up To Nothing: Rita's brain tumour

Some of these were tough choices! To find out why they picked each one, be sure to listen to Episode 289 of the podcast!
