Trashy: Nicola McLean had to use the bin to steady herself as she left the Inside Soap Awards last night

While many soap stars emerged from Gilgamesh looking bleary eyed after celebrating at the Inside Soap awards there was one guest in particular who left looking a little more than worse for wear.

In fact, glamour model Nicola McLean appeared unable to stand unaided as she left the party.

The 28-year-old sought the help of a wall, a bin and her friend to keep her upright as she waited for a car to take her home.

Not only was Nicola struggling to remain vertical but it seemed she had also lost the ability to hold her head up too.

After scraping her elbow against a wall and using her hand to hold herself up a pal came to her rescue to try and keep her on her feet.

But as the pair passed by a big bin, Nicola was forced to steady herself against it, a distinctly unglamorous scene.

Gravity taking its toll: Nicola used her elbow and her hand on the wall to stay upright before she was seen clutching onto the side of the bin as she waited for her car home

Luckily Nicola had a friend, who appeared to be sober, on hand to help and carried the model's goodby bags from the awards ceremony for her.

And as the woman called to see where there car was she also allowed Nicola to rest her head on her chest.

When her car home finally arrived the mother-of-two slumped into the backseat on her side, with her head in her hands.

Feeling embarrassed? Nicola looked a little sheepish and held her head in her hands as her friend led her away from the bin

Earlier in the evening Nicola had arrived at the bash, which was sponsored by, looking on much better form in a floor-length white gown with a scooped out back and jewelled strap detail.

But while Nicola was no doubt one of the most unsteady as she left the party she was by no means the only person who had indulged at the party.
