Why Hollyoaks should win big at the British Soap Awards 2012!
The British Soap Awards are but days away, and with the public vote still open to decide which stars take home the awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Sexiest Male, Sexiest Female, Villain Of The Year and Best Soap we thought we would give you a reminder of why each contender was nominated.
The 6 award categories below are open until 3pm on Friday 27th April for you to cast your vote, here are Hollyoaks contenders, and why they have been nominated:
Hollyoaks bagged two awards last year with Brendan Brady, actor Emmett Scanlan, being their big winner and they will hope to improve on that number this year and prove once and for all they are far more than just a glamorous teen soap with beautiful people.
There’s a bit of a theme with the guys and girls nominated for the sexiest soap stars this year in their Dancing On Ice links. Jorgie took part in the last series along with Emmerdale’s Matthew Wolfenden and proved what a bombshell she is with a series of sexy and elegant performances, with themes ranging from Fame, to dressing up as school girl in a tribute to Britney Spears. Showing off her gorgeous body at every opportunity in different skimpy outfit each week, it’s no surprise that she had all the men drooling after her and picked up enough votes to make it through to this shortlist. In real life she’s going out with co-star James Atherton, which was a case of life imitating art because ditzy blonde Theresa also went out with geeky will, who James plays and It seems the nations men love her just as much as him.
Danny certainly made a big entrance as cockney cheeky chappy Dodger, as his first ever scene was him walking through the streets of Hollyoaks stripping off as he went! It was obvious from that moment on that the show had yet another new hunk to pose for its calendar of half-naked stars. Since he first arrived it’s fair to say there’s not been many episodes of the soap that haven’t featured him half-naked, they certainly know how to make the most of their assets, and with a body like his, there’s not too many complaints about it either!
Jeff’s character Silas was up to no good even before we knew who he was! Killing India Longford (Beth Kingston) before we realised that this lethal and heartless killer was none other that Heidi Costello’s (Kim Tiddy) father! It was a big shock, how could this mild-mannered grandad be so evil? But he was, and he continued killing. He hated promiscuity in women, and anyone who failed to act like a nun was in his firing line, with Rae Wilson (Alice Barlow) next on his hit list after attempts on both Texas Longford(Bianca Hendricks Spendlove) and Theresa McQueens lives. There was one village resident who was on to him though in the shape of Lynsey, but not matter how hard she tried she couldn’t convince anyone that the lovable Grandad was a cold-blooded killer, and Silas was the master of acting the victim. Things eventually did come to a head though, when on Halloween night, during a party, Silas and Lysney had a showdown, and with Silas out for Lynsey’s blood, tragically and shockingly killed his own daughter in a case of mistaken identity. There can be no doubt that Jeff gave one hell of a performance and made the story one of the most gripping and entertaining of the year.
Best Actress – Karen Hassan (Lynsey Nolan)
