LONDON — British adult TV channel Television X has announced the nominees for the 2012 SHAFTA Awards.

The third annual ceremony for the Soft and Hard Adult Film and Television Awards are voted on by the general public.

Voting is now live at Shafta.xxx where visitors can sample some of the action and also download free wallpapers of SHAFTA stars.

Nominees include two ex-school teachers, Johnny Anglais for Male Performer of the Year and porn producer Liselle Bailey for her series “Liselle’s Sordid Summer,” which followed Bailey and her group of porn star pals on holiday in Ibiza.

"Taking a load of porn stars to Ibiza could be seen as a dream job … I’d say it’s nearly as tricky as controlling a class of 30 teenagers,” she said.

Controversial transsexual performer Holly Harlow has been nominated for Best New Starlet, a category usually dominated by female newcomers.

“The demand for transsexual content has seen a dramatic rise in recent years both online and through video on demand services on digital TV platforms,” said Chris Ratcliff, head of programming at the channel.

Holly Harlow has become one of the most watched performers and the term starlet fits her perfectly, she is feminine, sexy and a great performer.”

Also for the first time Television X will be streaming behind-the-scenes footage from the industry event live on March 15 via the website.

The SHAFTA Uncut show will be presented by Tanya Tate who will be getting up close and personal with the SHAFTA nominees.
