Bec hot favourite for Gold Logie



BEC Cartwright is hot favourite to be crowned TV's golden girl at tonight's Logie awards.

With Home and Away blitzing the ratings this year and Cartwright's recent engagement to tennis champion Lleyton Hewitt, the soap star is on track to take home the most popular TV personality gong.

But television host, Rove McManus, who won even more hearts when he wed his sweetheart, Belinda Emmett in January, is also a strong contender.

"Bec's gone through the roof this past year, so I wouldn't write her off," predicted McManus, hoping for his third successive Gold Logie.

"I think my success proved you just can't predict who's going to win."

Last year, everyone thought actor and singer Delta Goodrem was a shoo-in, but Rove won.

Cartwright's rivals at the Crown ceremony include nine-time gold Logie nominee John Wood from Blue Heelers, dual Gold logie winner Georgie Parker from All Saints and McLeod's Daughters star Bridie Carter.

The award would cap an extraordinary 12 months for Cartwright.

Home and Away has gone from strength to strength in the ratings. Cartwright was also victorious in the first series of Dancing with the Stars and in January, she became engaged after a whirlwind seven-week romance to tennis hothead Hewitt. Just seven days ago, Cartwright topped a magazine's poll as Australia's sexiest woman.

Hewitt will be at Cartwright's side at tonight's event. Also at the event will be Cartwright's ex-fiance, her former Home and Away co-star Beau Brady, nominated for Most Popular Actor.

Should Cartwright win tonight she will be Home and Away's first Gold logie winner and the first soapie starlet since Kylie Minogue in 1988 to win the award.

The award would be a fitting end to Cartwright's time on Home and Away. The bubbly actor, who joined the show in 1998, is widely tipped to quit the show when her contract expires this year.

Final preparations for the 47th Logie awards were in full swing yesterday. The white carpet, which this year replaces the traditional red, was unravelled and last minute touches were added to 15 2.5m-tall ice Logies.

This morning, the long list of guest presenters will go through a final run before the white carpet arrivals begin at 4.30pm.

McManus, Channel 7's Andrew O'Keefe and Channel 9's Eddie McGuire will host the awards.
