Which soap hunk would you like to fill your stockings?

by Lynn Connolly

As we prepare to hang our stockings on the end of the bed and send our letters to Father Christmas, we’d like to know which soap character hunk you’d like to find filling said stocking on Christmas morning? And no, we don’t mean who would make the best cross-dresser, but which of the gorgeous boys of our top three soaps would you spend Christmas day with if you could?

We’ve compiled a list of who we think are soap’s top ten sexy men and here they are…

In at number 10 is the lovely Dev played by Jimmi Harkishin. Yes he’s got the look of a soppy spaniel at times but nonetheless, he’s perhaps best described as the thinking woman’s totty and as Dev, he’s either charming or lounge-lizardy but when he’s being charming, he’s a force to be reckoned with.

Then at number 9 is bad lad Cain Dingle played by Jeff Hordley. He’s more your bit of rough but hey, I wouldn’t rule out a role in the – literal – hay with Cain!

Our number 8 choice is David in Corrie, played by Jack P Shepherd. Now he’s a bit young for me but if toyboys are your thang, then David is most definitely a contender.

In at number 7 is Max Branning played by Jake Wood. He’s nasty, he’s treacherous and he’s a ladies man… perfect for a one-day stand!

Number 6 in our line up is Matthew King played by Matt Healy. Again, he’s a bad boy and a ladies man but he knows his champagne from his nasty-asti and I wouldn’t mind finding him at the end of my bed on Christmas day!

Our number 5 goes to Christian in Eastenders, played by John Partridge. For us ladies, Christian could prove something of a challenge given he’s gay but heck, what else is there to do once you’ve cooked Christmas dinner? Beats playing charades…

Then at number 4 is Eastender’s Ricky played by Sid Owen. He’s like a faithful old hound is Ricky so if you’re all about comfort rather than speed this Christmas, a day spent with the lovely Rickay wouldn’t be so bad!

Our number 3 slot is ably filled by Jack Branning aka Scott Maslen. He’s got it all has our Jack; style, finesse, money and the chiseled hunky good looks of a soap god. He can fill my stockings once a year without doubt.

At number 2 is the gorgeous Tony Gordon played by Gray O’Brien. Yes he’s a murderer and yes, he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants, but dang, he fills a suit nicely. Wonder what he looks like out of one…

Then numero uno, top soap hunk who I’d love to see standing in his birthday suit holding my Christmas stocking is Sean from Eastenders played by Robert Kazinsky. He’s another bad boy with a soft side and his rugged rough and ready tousled looks could melt me from a hundred paces.

Let us know which soap hunk you’d fill your stockings with this Christmas… you never know, wishes do come true! Sometimes….
