TV’s Longest-Serving Soap Stars: From ‘Emmerdale’ To ‘EastEnders’

We chart who has clocked up the most time on set.

TV soaps have been a British staple since 1960, when ‘Coronation Street’ first appeared on our screens.

In the years since, we’ve been introduced to plenty of characters, thanks to ‘Corrie’, ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘EastEnders’, and plenty of actors have walked onto the shows’ sets.

Check out the longest-serving stars, from ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘EastEnders’, below…
