Michelle Keegan said her final farewells to Weatherfield earlier this week as she departed Coronation Street after 10 years on the popular show.

The 26-year-old beauty, who played Tina Macintyre in the soap, was recently crowned Sexiest Soap Star for the sixth year running at The British Soap Awards - a period of dominance during which her competitors have barely had a look in.

Her exit means the title is now open to the rest of our favourite on-screen babes.

So the good people at IBTimes decided to take a look at some of the hotties who might take her place...

Jaqueline Jossa

Known for playing troubled teen Lauren Branning on Eastenders, in real life she has blossomed into a brown-haired beauty and rival of Keegan. In 2013 and 2014 she was shortlisted in the 'Sexiest Female' category at the British Soap Awards, but lost out to Keegan. Maybe now is her time to snatch the crown?

Georgia May Foote

Georgia May Foote made her first appearance in Coronation street in 2010 as feisty, out-spoken Katy Armstrong. Her Hollywood good looks made her a rival of Keegan's throne overnight and it wasn't long before they were battling it out off-screen for the highly-coveted title. Will this red carpet dazzler be the one to take the crown?

Jorgie Porter

Jorgina Alexandra Porter is known for her role as blonde babe Theresa McQueen in the channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. She has graced the front covers of magazines, was ranked 50th in FHM's 2011 100 sexiest women in the world and is the current presenter for Nintendo Girls Club. Will this accomplished beauty be adding the 'Sexiest Female' award to her list too?

Jennifer Metcalfe

Jennifer Metcalfe is famous for her raunchy on-screen antics while playing Hollyoaks beauty Mercedes McQueen and also known for turning just as many heads in real life. Her dangerous, determined and sexy character is known for getting what she wants. Will this Femme fatale be the one to take home the crown? We wouldn't be suprised.
