BRITISH SOAP AWARDS TO RETURN IN 2022 AFTER TWO YEAR COVID DELAY

The award ceremony, hosted by Philip Schofield, will return for the first time since 2019, TV Zone understands.



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.



The ceremony was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid. Speaking last Spring, ITV said: "As a result of the pandemic, and following careful consideration of the ongoing safety measures in place for both drama productions and live events, ITV can confirm that the British Soap Awards will not take place this year."


They continued: "We look forward to hosting the awards again, when it is safe to do so, and honouring the actors and shows that are so close to viewers' hearts."



The British Soap Awards are traditionally broadcast late May/early June. More details will be revealed in due course. ITV have not yet commented.
