Television : Love-Triangle Ebony Faces Chop in TV Vote; PICK OF THE WEEK FAMILY AFFAIRS: Family Affairs' Viewers Go Interactive to Choose Hubby's Partner (Five, Monday-Friday, 6.30pm)


Byline: with Steve Hendry

Stunning Family Affairs star Ebony Thomas may have missed out on a prize at the British Soap Awards but she's still on the verge of making TV history.

The gorgeous 21-year-old who was nominated for Best Comedy Performance at last weekend's event is at the heart of a sizzling on-screen love triangle, the outcome of which will be decided by the soap's viewers.

Ebony joined Family Affairs as a 15-year-old and has survived cast culls by numerous show bosses, including former Coronation Street axeman Brian Park and current executive producer and Bill supremo Paul Marquess. …
