'Gorgeous' Michelle Keegan
Michelle Keegan's ex-boyfriend - 'Hollyoaks' actor Anthony Quinlan - has admitted he is not surprised the brunette beauty won Sexiest Female at last night's (27.09.10) 2010 Inside Soap Awards
Michelle Keegan's ex-boyfriend is "not surprised" she won Sexiest Female at the 2010 Inside Soap Awards.
Anthony Quinlan - who plays Gilly Roach in Channel 4 soap 'Hollyoaks' - parted ways with the brunette beauty in 2008 after a two-year relationship but was delighted to learn the 'Coronation Street' star had beaten off competition from the likes of Jennifer Melcalfe, Samantha Womack and Alison King to win the award for a second consecutive year.
He told BANG Showbiz: "Ah, don't tell me she's won Sexiest Female! I'm actually not surprised in the slightest - that girl is absolutely gorgeous. She's beautiful. She's lovely!"
The 23-year-old actor also revealed his co-star Carley Stenson - who plays his bubbly on-screen wife Steph - is set to leave the soap in a "tragic way" after battling cervical cancer.
Speaking at the 2010 Inside Soap Awards at London's Shaka Zulu last night (27.09.10), he said: "I think everyone's going to be a little bit shocked at what happens! Obviously Carley is leaving and I can tell you she goes in a tragic way, but that's all I'm saying.
"Carley has already filmed her last scenes, which is really sad. We've worked together as an on-screen couple for the past 18 months and I couldn't ask for anyone better to work with."
