Now Michelle Keegan has left Coronation Street, it meant someone else had a chance at this years Inside Soap Awards. The competition was close – there was so much glamour and gorgeous dresses on the night – but the prize ultimately went to Eastenders actress Jacqueline Jossa. It was Eastenders’ night as they also won Best soap and Best soap family.
I’ll explain who won what at the end of this post but first, let’s have a look at what everyone wore. I think the unofficial dress code was metallic as I saw a lot of gold and silver dresses. Here are the best dressed;
Earning her new status as soap’s sexiest female, despite being pregnant with her first child, Jacqueline looked stunning on the red carpet in an embellished maxi dress. She said she was shocked to hear she’d won and was surprised given that she’s a mum-to-be, but being pregnant actually suits her.
Nicki is a double award winner! She won best actress and best storyline. She’s got silver embellishment on her bodycon dress, but it really should be gold to signify ‘winner’ shouldn’t it?
The Hollyoaks actress may have missed out on Sexiest Female but she showed off an amazing figure in her mini dress. Her character’s had so many ups and downs in the soap it was good to see her with a smile on her face.
The Emmerdale actress had one of my favourite dresses of the night. I think the silver really stood out among the sea of gold. What do you think?
The Eastenders actress was an award winner along with her on-screen family, The Carters (headed by Danny Dyer). It’s her first year in soap and the first at the awards and she said she was ‘amazed’ and couldn’t believe her luck. Bless!
I like how Sherree Murphy bravely opted for a smart casual look of black trousers and a black crop top. She’s just joined Neighbours so maybe the relaxed Aussie style has rubbed off on her. Neighbours won Best Daytime Soap – well done Sherree!
