Michelle Keegan finds it strange to be nominated as the 'sexiest female'

Michelle Keegan has revealed her family think it is a joke when she is nominated for "sexiest female" awards.

The Coronation Street beauty was speaking on the red carpet at the 2011 British Soap Awards, where she looked stunning in a gold sequinned Ariella Couture by Kyri gown.

The actress, who plays barmaid Tina McIntyre in the soap, revealed she was teased by her nearest and dearest when she was nominated as top soap pin-up.

Michelle said: "It's very strange, especially when your friends and family think it's a joke and they think 'how the hell are you sexy', but it's very flattering, it really is."

The soap star also admitted it felt strange having the awards, staged in Manchester this year, so close to Coronation Street.

She said: "It feels weird because it feels like I should be going to work and doing some lines, because it's only up there.

"But it's nice, it's nice to have it in Manchester for once. And obviously the main soaps are all based up north, it's only EastEnders which is down south, so it's a nice change."

The awards were an opportunity for the female stars of soapland to get glammed up, with many daring to bare on the red carpet.

There were some revealing numbers worn by the Hollyoaks cast, with Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes McQueen) wearing a plunging dress held together by straps, while Stephanie Waring (Cindy Longford) stepped out in a shimmering backless frock.

Emmerdale's Sophie Powles (Holly Barton) seemed to have forgotten her skirt altogether, as she arrived in a shorts, stockings and suspenders combination.
