AN APPLETON teenager has been shortlisted for an Inside Soap award for her role in Hollyoaks.

Ruby O’Donnell, who plays Peri Lomax in the Channel Four soap, was voted for by members of the public from a longlist throughout the summer before organisers revealed she was one of the most popular nominees in the 'Best young actor' category.

The Hollyoaks starlet will find out if she has picked up the prize during a ceremony in London next week.

Her nomination has helped Hollyoaks lead the way on the night with 15 nominations in total, followed by EastEnders with 14, Emmerdale with 12 and Coronation Street with 11.
