On the trail of some of telly's biggest baddies.

IF the old adage 'good guys finish last' is true, prepare to meet the winners.

Yes, C5's TV's Nastiest Villains With Joan Collins is another of those cheap and cheerful countdown shows with some of the world's greatest small screen bad guys and girls.

Sure, audiences love a hero, but it's the unpredictability of the villains that capture our imagination. From the bad lad who can't keep on the right side of the law to the sadistic killers, it's the evildoers who keep us glued to television's biggest series.

After all, there's nothing entertaining about charming neighbourhoods where everyone is nice to everyone with saccharine pleasantries and the perfect 2.4 children.

So, as TV's Nastiest Villains counts down those actors that are the best at being the worst, there won't be any surprise to find C5 favourites Stefan Dennis and Linda Gray here, giving their opinion on the likes of much missed Dallas bad guy JR Ewing (aka Larry Hagman), and Neighbours's love-to-hate villain Paul Robinson.

The programme wouldn't be complete if it didn't feature sharptongued Mr Cruel himself, Simon Cowell, and former Coronation Street villain Brian Capron (aka Richard Hillman) is also among those offering their what keeps us rooting for the bad guys.
