The British Soap Awards confirms return after two year Covid absence
The British Soap Awards will at last make a return to screens this year, after a two year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ceremony will take place this June in London at The Hackney Empire, and will honour the nation’s biggest and best soap operas.
Phillip Schofield will, as usual, host, and a variety of well-known faces from from the world of TV and showbiz will present the awards.
What’s more, producers have taken the opportunity to refresh the award categories this year, and there will now be 14 awards up for grabs, voted for either by the public or a panel of expert judges.
It’s been quite a year in soapland, and this year’s award ceremony will celebrate the past twelve months of murder, mystery, make-ups, break ups, trials, tribulations and tears.
From Seb Franklin’s horrific death in Coronation Street, to Janine Butcher’s return to EastEnders – not to mention Summer’s revenge in Hollyoaks and Meena’s iconic crime spree in Emmerdale – it’s going to be a closely-fought fight!
