BRITISH SOAP AWARDS CONFIRMED TO RETURN THIS JUNE ON ITV

As exclusively revealed by TV Zone in January, the award ceremony, hosted by Philip Schofield, will return later this year for the first time since 2019. Our original report can be found here.



The ceremony celebrates all things Soaps - with star guests gracing the stage, looking back at explosive stunts and all those soap storylines that gripped the nation over the past year.



A 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.



Categories include Villain Of The Year, Best Dramatic Performance, Best Comedy Performance, Best Young Performer, Scene Of The Year, Best On Screen Partnership, Best Newcomer, Best Storyline and Best Single Episode, Outstanding Achievement Award and The Tony Warren Award.


The British Soap Awards return this June on ITV and ITV Hub.
