British Soap Awards gets rid of 'sexiest' male and female awards

The nominatons for this year's British Soap Awards will be released tomorrow, Monday 30 March. The awards ceremony will be held in Manchester again later this year.

However, this year, there will be no categories for sexiest male and sexiest female. About blinking time too!

There will be a new award category to celebrate “issue-led” story-lines.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “It was time to have a bit of a freshen-up. The awards will still be a big, fun celebration but we’ve found a lot of the actors and actresses are a bit embarrassed by the ‘sexiest’ tag.

Rob James Collier, who played Liam Connor in Corrie won the Sexiest Male award at the British Soap awards in 2007 and 2008. He spoke out publicly and critically about being voted 'sexy' when actors want to be appreciated for their acting skills.
