WHO IS GREATEST SOAP BITCH EVER?

Byline: By JIM SHELLEY

TRACY Barlow's credentials put her top of the bitch list on Corrie, but how doees she measure up against her sisters of the soap world?

Kate Ford's character was dubbed "Toxic Tracy" after becoming one of the most poisonous women to walk the Street's cobbles.

She has lied her way through most episodes in the last four years, bedding a string of unsuspecting fellas along the way.

Tracy even slept with her mum Deidre's ex-lover, shopkeeper Dev Alahan, but when he dumped her she got her revenge by chopping up his expensive suits. She scrapped with love rival Karen McDonald ruining her wedding day. And she accused ex Steve McDonald, father of her baby Amy, of trying to kidnap the girl.

But her most despicable deed was when she drugged cafe owner Roy Cropper, lied that he got her pregnant and then tried to sell him the baby. But Emmerdale's Sadie King (Patsy Kensit) takes some beating. She hit her ex-husband Jimmy over the head to kill him in the middle of a tragic explosion.

She also had injections to stop her having kids without him knowing, slept with her husband's brother Matthew and in an evil blackmail plot scuppered her father-in-law Tom King's plans to wed Chastity Dingle.

EastEnders hasn't been the same without Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins) who hired a hit man to try and murder husband Ian and Janine Evans (Charlie Brooks) who pushed husband Barry to his death off a mountain.

But was Alexis Carrington (Joan Collins) in the 80s American soap Dynasty the ultimate superbitch? Her fight with Krystle Carrington (Linda Evans) is one of the all-time great moments in TV history.
