Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition
so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
The British Soap Awards was predictably dominated by EastEnders – is it worth actors from other soaps even turning up? There’s free food I suppose…
Anyway, some of the awards I don’t have an argument with: yes, Scott Maslen is one of the sexiest males in soap so he deserves to walk home with that accolade. But Best Actor?!? Do me a favour! People voting in that category clearly didn’t watch the EastEnders live episode in which he noticeably fluffed his lines. Makes the entire thing a joke as far as I’m concerned. Anyway, here’s the full list of winners:
– Scott Maslen (EastEnders’ Jack Branning)
Sexiest Female – Michelle Keegan (Coronation Street’s Tina McIntyre)
Villain Of The Year – Larry Lamb (EastEnders’ Archie Mitchell)
Best Actor – Scott Maslen (EastEnders’ Jack Branning)
Best Actress – Lacey Turner (EastEnders’ Stacey Branning)
Best Comedy Performance
– Craig Gazey (Coronation Street’s Graeme Proctor)
