Coronation Street triumphed at the British Soap Awards 2013 and Michelle Keegan won sexiest female.
Carnage at X Factor 2012 boot camp
The X Factor became the axe factor when 60 contestants were dumped from the show's boot camp section before they had the chance to sing.
Around 200 would-be stars had travelled to Liverpool in an attempt to make it through to the judges' houses round.
But they were gathered on stage at the city's Echo Arena and almost a third were sent straight home by judges Tulisa Contostavlos, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger.
A show source told the Sun: "It was carnage. They were told there would be an important announcement. They went out on stage to face Tulisa, Louis, Gary and Nicole - and then the bombshell. There were looks of shock on people's faces. Even the judges looked upset."
It is believed show supremo Simon Cowell ordered the move amid fears that too many average acts had been put through.
An X Factor spokesman said: "Some of the contestants who got a yes at their first auditions, when seen side by side against the others, were not of a good enough standard."

Is it a coincidence that Tulisas' video of her sucking on a black mans willy was "leaked" the week before being voted by FHM readers as the sexiest woman in the world?
I'm no Gok Wan but that hairdo is wrong.
Saying that her looks are the least of her worries.
Just another case of a talentless pillock being made rich and famous for doing nowt.
I say doing nowt but I wonder how many ITV executives nobs were sucked before they decided to giver her a chance?

Great reporting MSN - Lets have an update when MSN actually reports real news - just for a change
Compared with the crap MSN writes never thought I would feel like this but I think I prefer The Murdoch press and the phone hacking
Seeing both these women, reminds me of an old saying "as much use as lipstick on a pig" while both are attractive in a brassy hooker/sl*t way, are really not of much interest to the majority of people and this continuous media push is just to try to push up the ratings for a show that is failing.
To quote Tulisa as a "superstar" is rather far fetched to put it mildly!
she is a vile common chav who for some reason is on tv, and believe me love you aint all that. seen better looking things that i flush away in my bog!
