Historically, British soaps are the stuff of dreary daydreams. Usually they’re set on a farm, or around a reasonably-priced but entirely-unrealistic pub that nobody’s ever happy with. And somebody’s always shouting.
 
Hollyoaks, on the other hand, is entirely different. It’s a soap with a difference, one with the evilest of villains and the craziest of plot-lines. And one that stars three of the most TV-screen-shatteringly hot actresses ever in our new cover stars, Jorgie Porter, Gemma Merna and Jennifer Metcalfe.

Between them they've survived serial killers, tanning machine explosions, self-harming, teen pregnancies and, away from the show, two appearances on Dancing on Ice (only Gemma is yet to take part).

In real life, the three girls are actual besties. They holiday together. They go out together. And, thankfully for FHM, for the first time ever, they now also do exceedingly sexy shoots together.
