EastEnders actor Robert Kazinsky correctly predicted that he would be beaten in the Sexiest Male category by Coronation Street‘s Rob James Collier.

Speaking ahead of the British Soap Awards on Saturday night, Kazinsky – who plays scary Sean Slater in the soap – and fellow Sexiest Male nominee, Hollyoaks actor Ricky Whittle, said they were certain they would both lose out on the title to the Corrie hunk.

“It’s gonna go to Rob,” Kazinsky said, with Whittle adding: “Yeah, I fancy him too.”

But Whittle also revealed that he thought the Sexiest Male Category was rather embarrassing, saying: “Who do you thank, your mum and dad for your genes?”

Kazinsky and Whittle first met on Sky One’s football drama Dream Team, which was axed in 2007 after 10 years.

And they were later joined on the purple carpet by Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas, as all three reminisced about their days on Dream Team.

Lomas said: “We’re the Dream Team – like Charlie’s Angels but boys.”
