'Hollyoaks' chief shocked by awards snub
Hollyoaks' series producer Lucy Allan has admitted that she was shocked by the show's poor performance at the British Soap Awards this year.

The Channel 4 programme failed to pick up a single prize at May's ceremony, despite being nominated in every category.

Reflecting on the setback, Allan told Metro: "To be nominated in every category, it was a bit of a shock, but the only way is up for next year."

She continued: "My summary of it is that we probably came second in lots of stuff. There's no prize for second place but we acquitted ourselves very well and on the night I think our clips absolutely stood up."

Allan added that she is now hoping for recognition at the forthcoming Inside Soap Awards, claiming that Hollyoaks has "strong contenders" in each category.

She then joked: "But after the travesty that was the Soap Awards I wouldn't like to hazard a guess at where we'd end up!" Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
