SOAP babes from Hollyoaks are going head-to-head to find out who is the sexiest of them all.
Emma Rigby, who plays Hannah Ashworth in the Liverpool-made teen soap, will take on co-stars Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes) and reigning champion Roxanne McKee at the British Soap Awards.
Roxanne is hoping to retain the gong she won last year for her role as Louise Summers.
Emmerdale beauty and former Liverpool John Moores University student Roxanne Pallett is also in the running.
Viewers are already voting for the winner, who will be named at a swanky London bash in May.
TV fans were also spoiled for choice when votes opened for the Sexiest Male category.
Hunky Ricky Whittle, who plays PC Calvin Valentine in the Channel 4 programme, and cast mate Chris Fountain, who plays Justin, will battle it out with ex-Hollyoaks villain Barry Sloane.
Barry, who played Niall in the soap last year, is also hoping to take the bad boy crown and win Villain of the Year.
He is up against Jamie Lomas, who plays Warren, and Kieron Richardson, who plays Ste.
They are in competition with actors from Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders and Emmerdale.
Garston-born Barry said: “It would be great to win an award and bring it home.
“I was up for Most Popular Newcomer at the National Television Awards last year, but it went to Rita Simons from EastEnders.
“Everyone said I got the biggest cheer on the night. I am hoping Hollyoaks fans will vote for us.”
Hollyoaks cleaned up at last year’s event and scooped six trophies, more than Coronation Street or EastEnders.
Chris Fountain and Emma Rigby won best actor and actress for the Channel 4 programme, with other wins including best on-screen partnership.
