SOAP BAUBLES; Corrie beauty Nikki sparkles in pounds 100k gems.

Byline: By CAROLINE BARRETT and CAROLINE WATERSTON

CORRIE stunner NIKKI SANDERSON stole the show at last night's British Soap Awards even before the gongs were given out - by arriving in pounds 100,000 worth of jewels.

Sexy Nikki made her dazzling entrance in earrings and a heavy bauble-style necklace by top jewellers Aspreys.

And even though the gems were on loan and only hers for the night, she beamed: "I feel a million dollars in my jewels. They are fantastic."

Nikki, 21, looked fabulous after squeezing her curves into a low-cut, figure-hugging electric blue Kyri dress. She happily posed with hand on hip and a smile as wide as The Street.

Never far from her side was on-screen boyfriend DANNY YOUNG (Warren Baldwin) who wore a brilliant-white suit.

But if Nikki (who plays Candice Stowe) looked a dish, one star looked a real dog - Corrie canine SCHEIMICHEL who was wearing a specially-made doggie tuxedo.

He was walked in by young star SAM ASTON (Chesney Brown) who also wore a tux. One onlooker said: "They made a wonderful matching pair."

Nikki's Corrie co-star and rival for the Sexiest Female gong SAMIA GHADIE (Maria Sutherland) wore an emerald green Karen Millen dress, while sporting a new blonde hairstyle.

There was a huge cheer for Emmerdale's SAMMY WINWARD (Katie Williams) another babe on the Sexiest Female shortlist. The heavily pregnant star, in a black dress, was with footballer boyfriend David Dunn at the event in London hosted by comic Paul O'Grady .

She was followed by her co-star LUCY PARGETER (Chastity Dingle) who is also due to give birth next month. She wore a striking red dress and was with her partner Rudi Coleano. Also in the Emmerdale team was PATSY KENSIT (Sadie King) showing off her new, trimmer figure in a pink suit by Catherine Walker.

EastEnders' NATALIE CASSIDY (Sonia Flowler) showed off her new 34D chest in a busty ballerina-style brown dress. She was with co-star and on-screen husband JAMES ALEXANDROU (Martin Fowler). But Family Affairs star EBONY THOMAS (Yasmin Green) took the award for the Worst Dressed. She wore a sickly bright yellow gown which showed almost all of her body. New mum CHARLIE BROOKS also wore yellow, but a flowing couture number.

However, EastEnders' KACEY AINSWORTH (Little Mo) made the biggest fashion faux-pas by turning up in the same dress as younger star AMY NUTTALL who has quit as Emmerdale's Chloe Atkinson .

EastEnders heart-throb NIGEL HARMON (Dennis Watts) was so late he was seen running behind the scenes in a tracksuit looking for somewhere to get changed.
