About Soaps

Whether its EastEnders, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks or Emmerdale, we can't resist sitting down to watch soaps on TV. The fictional world of Walford has provided us plenty of entertainment over the years, with iconic characters such as Dirty Den and Angie - with their Christmas divorce papers - Peggy Mitchell, Alfie Moon, Pat Butcher and the Slaters. With Dominic Treadwell-Collins as executive producer, the soap has gone from strength-to-strength, pulling in millions of viewers with the 'who killed Lucy Beale?' storyline and Linda Carter's emotional rape storyline, which has won Kellie Bright and Danny Dyer plenty of praise. In Coronation Street's Weatherfield, Sarah-Louise Platt has returned, while Steve McDonald's drama continues, and Roy Cropper is still struggling to get over the loss of his wife Hayley. Emmerdale's HIV storyline has captured viewers' attention, as has the return of Robert Sugden and the Barton family drama, while in Hollyoaks, the Mcqueens and Roscoes have been at the centre of everything from hostage situations and trials, to paternity rows and murder plots. Here, Huffington Post UK Entertainment bring you all the latest news, spoilers, pictures and teasers, along with cast interviews and all the updates from the Inside Soap, and British Soap Awards.
