The actress says Catherine is 'warm funny and gorgeous'

Michelle Keegan wants her fans to support Coronation Street at this year’s British Soap Awards.

The actress, 26, has been nominated in the Sexiest Female and Best Actress categories but isn’t sure whether she’ll pick up a gong at the prestigious ceremony next month.

‘I hope you are all voting for your favourites in the British Soap Awards 2014,’ says Michelle.

‘Everyone keeps asking me if I think I will win Sexiest Female again, to be honest I am amazed I won it once.’

Mark Wright‘s stunning fiancée – who plays barmaid Tina McIntyre on the cobbles – has bagged the Sexiest Female prize every year since 2009.

This may be the last year that she has a chance to triumph as Tina is being killed off next month – but she still reckons her castmate Catherine Tyldesley, 30, deserves to triumph over her.

‘My vote this year goes to my very sexy co-star,’ Michelle writes in Hello!.

‘She is such a warm funny and uber gorgeous woman, with the most amazing curves!’
