Inside Soap Award nominees reveal Corrie secrets

This week's Inside Soap magazine has an exclusive photo shoot of some of the Coronation Street cast members nominated in the Inside Soap Awards. And what a good photo shoot it is.

All dolled up in their best bib and tucker are Sally Ann Matthew (Jenny Bradley), Colson Smith (Craig Tinker), Ellie Leach (Faye Windass), Jack P Shepherd (David Platt), Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt) and Sean Ward (Callum Logan).

As well as the pictures of them all glammed up, there's a few snippets from behind the scenes from each of them too.

Sean Ward (Callum) is nominated for Best Bad Boy and Sexiest Male. He says that in real life: "People are always asking me for drugs! Even if I'm just in the supermarket with my mum, it's terrible."  Sean admits he doesn't drive so he has a driving double on the Corrie set, and says he'd love to do a scene with Barbara Knox, who plays Rita.  I'd love to see that too, she'd scare the living daylights out of Callum.

Lucy Fallon (Bethany) is nominated for Best Newcomer and she's one I have voted for. I love her and think she's ace.  Lucy says she'd love to have some scenes with Kate Ford as Tracy Barlow. "I think there would be fireworks if they crossed each other," she says. I can see Bethany joining Team-Evil at Barlow's Buys with toxic Todd and terrible Tracy.

Jack P Shepherd (David) is nominated for Best Actor. He says he loves acting with Les Dennis (Michael Rodwell). "It's hilarious doing scenes when he's in them because he's always corpsing and then he just laughs in your face."  When asked if the cast like to play pranks on each other, Jack says "Of course! Colson Smith (Craig) is the biggest target at the minute.  He's only just started coming into the green room so he's fresh meat.  It's him and Ches (aka actor Sam Aston) - everyone calls him Chesney, no one calls him Sam!"

Ellie Leach (Faye) and Colson Smith (Craig) say they're great friends off-screen as well as on-screen.  Colson and Ellie have both been nominated for Best Young Actor although Colson says he should have been nominated for Sexiest Male.  It was a hard decision for me to know which one of these two to vote for in this category, they have been both excellent. Colson admitted there could be romance on the cards for Craig coming up!

Sally Ann Matthews (Jenny) is nominated for Best Bad Girl. She talks about Jenny's wig having its own twitter account and admits she didn't keep it as it was a really nasty, cheap wig.  She says she would give an award to Eileen Derbyshire (Emily Bishop) in Corrie as she is the ultimate professional on the show and she has a wicked sense of humour.
