The soap awards is one of the biggest events in the soap industry. Not the soap you bath with, the TV soaps! On June 3rd 2017, the British Soap Awards will be held at 23:30. Yes, it’s going to be an event of your home because it’s totally worth watching. What is most amazing about this event is seeing our favourite character from the soaps actually come out of their roles and be themselves. Though it could be disappointing too, because you’ll feel like you’ve been lied to all your soap life!

2017 will be the 19th successive year of the British Soap Awards. This night will be full of excitement, beautiful people and judgement. The voting for the event will open on the 9th of May after the shortlist is announced and will be streamed live from The Lowry, Manchester. Who’s going to watch this under the blankets with a huge bowl of popcorn?!  On the red carpet, see the oh so loved actors from Corrie, Emmerdale, Eastenders, Doctors and Holly Oaks.

You better know what you’re getting yourself into before voting because the panel nominations will be:

  • “Best Single Episode”
  • “Villain of the Year”
  • “Best Young Actor”
  • “Scene of the Year”
  • “Best Male Dramatic Performance”
  • “Best Female Dramatic Performance”
  • “Best Comedy Performance”
  • “Best On-Screen Partnership”
  • “Best Storyline”
  • “Best Newcomer”

Of course, this includes the usual Best Actor, Best Actress and so on, those on the expert panel will make us sweat big time!  There’s a question that is playing on all our minds. Who will be hosting the awards?? Just like last year, Phillip Schofeild will be hosting as he did an amazing job last year.

If you lot have watched the Soap Awards last year, you should be pleased to know you were not the only ones who cried. Yeah, most people were in tears of joy when Emmerdale won the best soap and Danny Miller won Best actor and Best Male Dramatic Performance in Emmerdale. Even when Lacey Turner won Best Female Dramatic Performance for East Enders. This year, let’s not forget to include the tissue box before sitting in front of the telly.
