Eeeek! Hollyoaks' Claire and Emmerdale's Lucy go for an identical LBD

Poor Claire Cooper! The actress picked up the British Soap Award for Best Actress on Saturday night in Manchester but had to deal with the embarrassment of soap rival Lucy Pargeter turning up in a twin frock.

The British Soap Awards was always going to be the battle of the babes, but it was a style showdown when Hollyoaks Claire and Emmerdale‘s Lucy decided to wear the same daring, distinctive, cut-out, plunge-back long black dress from Giovanni.

Claire revealed: ‘I picked up this dress when I was in LA.’
