The British Soap Awards 2022: Live

Short List Nominations Revealed

The British Soap Awards returns live to ITV and ITV Hub this June after being off air for two years. The awards will take place in London at The Hackney Empire and will honour the nation’s biggest and most-loved soap operas.

Hosted by Phillip Schofield, the live awards will be presented by an array of well-known faces from across the TV and showbiz world.

The returning award ceremony will celebrate a mammoth year in soap opera, looking back on twelve months of murder, mystery, make-ups, break ups, trials, tribulations and tears. An incredible year in which Janine Butcher returned to Albert Square in EastEnders, Seb Franklin died of injuries sustained in an horrific hate crime in Coronation Street, Summer set out to destroy Brody for his role in her father's death on Hollyoaks, Meena Jutla left a trail of murder and mayhem in Emmerdale and Rob's relationship with Karen was left hanging in the balance in Doctors.

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.  Some of the biggest faces from all five soaps will be hitting the red carpet for the most star-studded and glamorous event in the soap calendar.

The British Soap Awards recognise outstanding achievement in the country’s most popular television genre.  There are 14 awards voted for either by the public or a panel of expert judges.
