‘My ears got all confused’: Coronation Street fans left shocked after hearing star Charlotte Jordan’s real accent at The British Soap Awards 2023
Coronation Street fans watching The British Soap Awards 2023 on Tuesday night, were left surprised after hearing star Charlotte Jordan’s real-life accent.
The actress, 28, scooped a number of awards on the night for her performance as Daisy Midgley on Corrie, including Best Dramatic Performance.
But viewers couldn’t help but be distracted when the star took to the stage to deliver her acceptance speech.
While her character Daisy has a strong Manchester accent, Charlotte is in fact from Surrey.
Fans were taken aback after hearing the actress’ real voice and took to Twitter to express their surprise.
One said: ‘Wasn’t expecting Charlotte Jordan to sound so posh in real life.’
Another echoed: ‘Charlotte Jordan being a posh girl, though! My ears got all confused.’
A third praised: ‘Wow! How different does Charlotte Jordan sound to her character Daisy in #Corrie but she’s fabulous nevertheless . Well deserved award!’
A fourth agreed, writing: ‘charlotte jordan deserves every award purely based off the fact that her manchester accent is unreal??? i am so confused as to how she’s actually that posh’.
While a fifth added: ‘Had no idea Charlotte Jordan was putting on her Manchester accent’.
And a sixth commented: ‘Charlotte Jordan is also very very pretty but I am absolutely thrown by the fact she isn’t actually from Manchester’.
Charlotte previously revealed that she had no idea how to do the Mancunian accent when she first auditioned for the soap.
However, she revealed that she luckily had a friend who was also trying to emulate the same accent at the same time, who she was able to learn from.
Speaking to Metro in January, she explained: ‘When I went to the audition, I didn’t know how to do it.
‘But by pure luck, or fate, a friend of mine was doing an ITV drama where she had to have a Mancunian accent. She had an accent coach, so I basically used her as a coach to nail the accent down.’
Charlotte, who has been at the centre of the horrific acid attack storyline, was up for both the best leading performer and best dramatic performance at the ceremony.
She missed out on the Best Leading Performer gong to EastEnders star Danielle Harold, but she won the Best Dramatic Performance Award.
For the awful acid attack scene itself, Charlotte and her co-stars Ryan Prescott (Ryan Connor) and Andrew Still (Justin Rutherford) also scooped the awards for Scene of The Year and Best Single Episode.
