British Soap Awards – Hollyoaks Nominated Best Single Episode
We are absolutely over the moon to learn that Hollyoaks has been nominated in the British Soap Awards 2014 in Best Single Episode for the John Paul Rape Ordeal.
Our Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Duncan, has spent nearly a year supporting Hollyoaks writers and producers at Lime Pictures to develop this long running storyline and is delighted with the nomination.
What Hollyoaks has achieved with this story is phenomenal. When we first started talking, I knew that it was a brave move to make and if it was done properly then it could be a great step forward in breaking the silence around the topic of male victims of sexual violation. But I didn’t realise the enormity of impact it would have on the viewers. We have had so many of our service users tell us about how its helped them start a conversation with their friends and family, whilst new enquiries for support have been coming in.
The researchers, writers, directors, cast and crew have been utterly amazing and from us all here at Survivors Manchester, we wish them good luck at the #SoapAwards. they truly deserve to win.
