Fans have stood with Jude Riordan as he made a 24-hour plea.
Fans have praised the 11-year-old St Helens native for his portrayal of Sam Blakeman in Coronation Street. Jude’s performance was recognized with an award after he won Best Newcomer at the National Television Awards the previous year.
With his nomination for Best Young Performer at the Inside Soap Awards, he is now hoping to add to his collection. Other accomplished celebrities like Isabella Flanagan and Gabrielle Dowling must compete with Jude.
The public will choose the winner, and Jude has used social media to ask supporters to back him before the election closes tonight.
He stated: “Voting is now closed, people! You may vote for me at the website, along with everything else #Corrie, of course. I appreciate all the help.”
Fans poured into the comments section to support Jude in the voting.
Chris said, “You have my support.”
Then Kim said, “All done!”
Added Matt, “Done.”
