Congratulations to Emmerdale star Charlie Hardwick, who won the Best On-Screen Performance prize at the RTS Yorkshire Awards for her portrayal of Val Pollard as she came to terms with being HIV positive.



Charlie has been magnificent in portraying Val’s despair, then her anger, then her determination not to be defeated, after she was given the diagnosis and the award has been well won.



The RTS Yorkshire Awards were set up to showcase the best of Yorkshire media production.
