Five of our favourite television divas.

Alexis Carrington, Dynasty (1981-89)

Delivering her damnable pronouncements in that clipped tone, Alexis (Joan Collins) was the first wife of Blake Carrington and she sought revenge with panache. Catfight? Oh, one or two...

Patricia Hamilton, Sons And Daughters (1982-84)

Pat the Rat was a term coined by co-star Peter Phelps and Rowena Wallace was so convincing as a conniving matriarch that she earned a Gold Logie in 1985.

Morag Bellingham, Home And Away (1988-)

Who else but Cornelia Frances, having already played the villainous Sister Scott on Young Doctors, could best fill the role of Summer Bay's schemer, the judgemental Judge Bellingham?

Amanda Woodward, Melrose Place (1993-99)

Ratings for the show skyrocketed with the arrival of Heather Locklear, who, as landlord of the eponymous apartment complex, destroyed the lives of half of her tenants and slept with the rest.

Edie Britt, Desperate Housewives (2004-)

More tart than troublemaker, this serial divorcee (Nicolette Sheridan) is already seducing the men of Wisteria Lane and making enemies via her less-than-neighbourly antics.
