Inside Soap Awards 2022

FANS TO NAME THE GREATEST SOAP STAR OF ALL TIME AT THE INSIDE SOAP AWARDS 2022

Following two years as a virtual ceremony, The Inside Soap Awards are back with a bang as a physical event – to celebrate 30 years of Inside Soap magazine!

This year, along with the familiar trophies for Best Soap, Best Storyline, Best Villain and the rest, soap fans are also invited to name their All-Time Icon.

Viewers are free to nominate any soap star, from any show, who has made watching TV truly special for them. So, who will be named television’s ultimate dramatic god or goddess, and take home a unique golden trophy? Could it be a Dingle or a Slater? A Mitchell or a McQueen? A Beale, a Barlow or a Battersby?

“Even in a world of battling streaming services, the soaps remain the most-watched shows on TV, and their main characters the biggest stars in Britain,” says Gary Gillatt, editor of Inside Soap magazine. “To celebrate 30 glorious, ridiculous years of Inside Soap, we’re offering our readers – the best-informed viewers there are – this chance to celebrate the absolute best of the best. We’re looking to name TV’s ultimate drama magnet. The soap icon above all icons.”

In addition, fans can vote in 15 other categories, to reward the great and the good, the wily and the wicked from the past year of TV.

Around 100,000 viewers vote each year in The Inside Soap Awards, and they remain, after three decades, the only accolades of their kind to be awarded based solely on the votes of viewers.

Voting opens midday on Tuesday 19 July.

Voting is via the form in the magazine or at the website www.insidesoap.co.uk

Winners will be revealed at a special ceremony in London in October.
