Hollyoaks bad boy Emmett wins Best Actor

CONGRATS to Irish actor Emmett Scanlan, who has picked a coveted award at All About Soap Awards, which took place over the weekend.

THE Dublin hunk, who plays bad boy Brendan Bray in Hollyoaks, was over the moon after adding another piece of silverware to his growing collection.

He was voted Best Actor by readers of the magazine for his portrayal of the dangerous psychopath in the popular Channel 4 series. Speaking after news of his win emerged, Scanlan said: "Wow, of all the awards, Best Actor is just such an honour. I want to say thank you to all the fans and everyone at Hollyoaks, because without them, there'd be no Brendan Brady!" This isn't the first award he has won for his time on the programme, though. Last year saw him walk away with two awards from the British Soap Awards, after winning Villain Of The Year and Best Newcomer.

Also celebrating over the weekend was Galway beauty Rachel Coen, who won the title of Miss VanityX in Lillie's Bordello. DJ Ray Shah hosted the bash as 21 stunning finalists battled for the title. Other beauties seen hanging out in the club's Library included Rosanna Davison (above) with boyfriend Wes, alongside Emma Waldron with boyfriend Manners Oshafi.
