Hollyoaks actress Nikki Sanderson has confessed that filming this week's stripper scenes was 'slightly awkward'. The former Corrie star's character Maxine Minniver joins forces with sister Mitzeee this week to take revenge after they discover male pole dancer Tyson - who they audition for their hen party business - has been dating them both. Nikki said of the audition scenes: "It was brilliant - the lads that were playing the strippers were fantastic and really good fun. It was slightly awkward! But it's such a fun storyline and I think it's going to come across really well on screen. "It's much better when you've got the girls around you. I would have been mortified if I'd been sat there on my own so it was good that Rachel (who plays Mitzeee) was there with me." She added of Maxine and Mitzeee's revenge: "The actor who plays Tyson is such a lovely, lovely young man and he was really good. He was tied to railings in some little underpants and a shirt and it was freezing, but he didn't complain once. He was so professional!"
