The British Soap Awards returns to celebrate another mammoth year in soap opera, looking back on twelve months worth of murder, mystery, make ups, break ups, trials, tribulations, tears and heartache.
The 16th annual awards, which take place for the first time at London’s iconic Hackney Empire theatre, will honour the nation’s biggest and best-loved TV shows, as well as the stars that have portrayed the characters in this year’s most talked about storylines.
The five biggest soaps - Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks – will be battling it out to win recognition for their work over the past year. Stars from all five soaps will be hitting the red carpet for the most star-studded event in the soap calendar.
Hosted by Phillip Schofield, the awards will be presented by an array of well-known faces from across the TV and showbiz world.
