Soap Awards: Max George proud as Michelle Keegan wins Sexiest Female AGAIN

Michelle Keegan made boyfriend Max George proud as she won the Sexiest Female award at the British Soap awards for the FOURTH time.

Corrie's Michelle Keegan cemented her place as the Sexiest Soap star by picking up the gong for Sexiest Female at last night's British Soap Awards ceremony.

And despite the fact that she has called off her engagement to Max George, The Wanted star made sure he publicly congratulated his girlfriend on Twitter.

He posted: "well done kiddo! never in doubt! see u tmoro! xxx @michkeegan"

Michelle didn't publicly respond on the social networking site.

But she seemed thrilled with her award as she turned up at the glamorous event at London TV centre with the Corrie gang and the TOWIE cast.

Mich lived up to her gong, stealing the best dressed award too in a floor-length, one-shouldered midnight blue gown.

The 24-year-old paired her dramatic frock with metallic accessories and wore her tousled hair down.

Michelle Keegan later changed into a sequined block colour mini dress and heels as she partied the night away with her co-stars at Cafe de Paris.

Corrie got seven awards in total but Eastenders were the big winners of the night, claiming Best British Soap for the fifth year in a row.

This morning Michelle tweeted to thank fans for voting for her. She said: "Thank-u,thank-u,thank-u 2 every single person who voted 4 me,means so much that u took the time and effort. On my way home smilin. :) xxx"

And she clearly reckoned she overdid it on the fake tan, as she commented on model Kelsey Belle's photo saying: "wow how orange do I look??!!"
