At this week’s British Soap Awards, actress Charlotte Jordan won Best Drama Performance for her portrayal of Daisy Midgley in Coronation Street.
When Coronation Street fans heard Charlotte Jordan, who plays Corrie’s Daisy Midgley, at The British Soap Awards, they couldn’t quite believe what they were hearing.
Fans of Coronation Street were taken aback when they heard star Charlotte Jordan’s authentic accent during Tuesday night’s broadcast of The British Soap Awards 2023.
With her character Daisy, friend Ryan Connor (played by Ryan Prescott), and her stalker Justin Rutherford (Andrew Still), the 28-year-old has been at the center of a horrifying acid attack plotline.
The three of them collectively won prizes for Best Single Episode and Scene of the Year.
Jordan was happy to receive the Best Dramatic Performance award despite Danielle Harold from EastEnders winning Best Leading Performer.
Jordan winning one of the top prizes delighted the audience, but her acceptance speech was a source of distraction.
Despite the fact that Daisy from Corrie speaks with a noticeable Manchester accent, Jordan is actually from Surrey.
One viewer expressed their shock at the discovery on Twitter, writing: “Charlotte Jordan being a posh girl, though! My ears went completely crazy.
Someone else said, “Wasn’t expecting Charlotte Jordan to sound so posh in real life.”
Fans warmed up to the actress even more as a result of this, with many praising the Coronation Street star for her talent.
A third person said, “Wow! Charlotte Jordan sounds completely different from her Corrie character Daisy, but she’s still amazing. Well deserved award!”
Another person commented: “Charlotte Jordan deserves every award just for her unbelievable Manchester accent, right? I don’t understand how she can be that posh. (sic)
Jordan previously admitted that when she went for the ITV soap opera, she had no idea how to do a Mancunian accent.
However, she was only able to pick up the accent because of a friend who was also attempting to do so at the time.
Jordan admitted to The Metro earlier this year: “I didn’t know how to do it when I went to the audition.
However, it just so happened—or perhaps it was fate—that a friend of mine was acting in an ITV drama where she had to have a Mancunian accent.
I essentially used her as a coach to perfect the accent because she had one.
