Carol Wright is very close to her future daughter-in-law

Michelle Keegan‘s loved ones think it’s amazing that she picked up the Sexiest Female gong at the British Soap Awards for the sixth year running on Saturday.

The Coronation Street star, 26, attended the ceremony at London’s Hackney Empire with her fiancé Mark Wright, whose mum Carol was thrilled with her success.

‘Very proud of my future daughter in law tonight winning an award at the soap awards #proudwelldeserved @michkeegan little beauty. X,’ Tweeted Carol.

This year will likely be the last that Michelle picks up the prize as her barmaid character Tina McIntyre is being killed off in a whodunnit storyline tonight.

Tina is set to perish after being pushed off a balcony at the builders’ yard.

Fans of the stunning actress – who’s planning to wed ex-TOWIE hunk Mark, 27, next year – are very sad to see her go and think she was the right recipient of the trophy.

‘she definitely deserves it so glad she won 😄👏💖,’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘as always she’s flawless, will miss her in corrie x.’
