Drew, how could you skip top 5 sexiest actors?!!! LOL

Sexiest Actresses (off the top of my head): 1) Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes Fisher, Hollyoaks) 2) Natalie Anderson (Alicia Metcalfe, Emmerdale) 3) Fiona Wade (Priya Sharma, Emmerdale) 4) Jorgie Porter (Theresa McQueen, Hollyoaks) 5) Sammy Winward (Katie Macey, Emmerdale)

Also, these are just categories I chose. You guys can totally make up your own if you want. And Shick, Best Return / Best Newcomer are two separate categories, but my answer was the same character.
