The winners in the sixth annual Shortland Street Fan Awards have been announced by Throng.co.nz; New Zealand’s TV watching community website.
Viewers gave the 2011 season an average rating of 7.7/10, the same as 2010. The number who gave the score a perfect 10 was 16%, up from 13% last year.
TK Samuels lost his spot as Favourite Male Character to Daniel Potts this year while returning Ferndale resident Vinnie Kruse took second place.
Bella Cooper defeated the recently departed Sophie McKay for Favourite Female Character but Kimberley Crossman picked up Favourite Actress and Hottest Female. Crossman was also voted most missed character and the most popular non-dead character that fans would like to see brought back.
Fans overwhelmingly stated that the biggest letdown of 2011 was TK and Sarah not getting back together. Getting the couple back together was also the theme for fans’ hopes for 2012.
