She's won the title for the past three years, and will once again be battling out for the honour of being named Sexiest Female at this year's British Soap Awards.

And last night Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan decided to show exactly why she deserves to take home the prestigious prize for a fourth year, as she headed out in Manchester.

The stunning 24-year-old star donned a barely-there geometric print minidress as she joined friends at the Sakura nightclub.

Michelle teamed her eye-catching dress
with a pair of long gold earrings and a bright pair of blue heels, with a
turquoise clutch bag.

This year will see Michelle compete against fellow soap stars Jorgie Porter, from Hollyoaks and EastEnders actresses Jacqueline Jossa and Preeya Kalidas at the ceremony, which takes place on April 28th.

Michelle, who has played barmaid Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street since 2008, recently opened up about her sexy image.

The soap star, who is dating The Wanted singer Max George, admitted she'll be happy to strip for something like a period drama, because she thinks it looks 'tasteful', but would also consider maybe stripping for an adult magazine.

She
told The Sun: 'I wouldn't say no to something like Playboy if it's
tastefully done. But I will never get my boobs out, unless it was for a
professional acting job.

'They're my boobs. I don't want the
world to see them. I see them as my private bits and I don't want the
whole world judging them.

'But I'd love to do a period drama one day. I've seen nudity in a period drama and thought it looked tasteful.'

Michelle's nomination was just one nod ITV soap Coronation Street received at the awards.

They also got nominations for Alison King, who is up for Best Actress, and Best British Soap for the show.

EastEnders
actress Jo Joyner led the awards nominations, after she was nominated
for Best Actress and Best Dramatic Performance after her character Tanya
Jessop was diagnosed with cancer.

Her
on-off relationship with Max Branning also saw her and co-star Jake
Wood nominated for Best On-Screen Partnership as well as Best Storyline.

Walford's
farewell to cast stalwart Pam St Clement, who played Pat Butcher for 25
years, is nominated for the Best Single Episode.

Coronation Street and EastEnders will fight it out against Doctors, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks to be named Best British Soap.

A Lifetime Achievement Award and a Special Achievement Award will be announced on the night.

The awards, held in London later this month, will be presented by Phillip Schofield and be shown on ITV1 in May.
