Corrie’s Michelle Keegan is officially the Sexiest Female in soap

Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan has picked up the award for Sexiest Female for the third year in a row, at this year’s British Soap Awards.

The stunning brunette, who is currently dating The Wanted singer Max George, gained the title after going up against fellow soap stunners, who were picked by the public.

They included Corrie babe Alison King, who plays Carla Connor, Rita Simons who plays Roxy Mitchelle in EastEnders, and Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays Mercedes McQueen.

After receiving her award from members of pop band Mcfly, Michelle, who looked stunning in a full-length gold gown, said: "I’ve always wanted to meet them! Thank you so much to everyone who’s voted. I want to dedicate the award to my mum and dad, I love them very much.”

It was a good night for Coronation Street, with the soap lifting no less than nine awards at the glitzy bash, which took place on May 14 and was screened on TV tonight, May 18.

Top honours included the award for Spectacular Scene of the Year for the tram crash which was screened to celebrate Corrie’s 50th anniversary.

Young actor Alexander Bain, who plays Simon Barlow, was delighted to win Best Young Performance, while Patti Clare, who plays Mary Taylor picked up Best Comedy Performance.

Best Storyline was also awarded to Corrie for the episode entitled “End of the line for the Websters & Dobbs”. But Coronation Street missed out on the top award of the night, Best British Soap, with EastEnders pipping Corrie to the post.
