Inside Soap Awards shortlist revealed as shows battle out for coveted Best Soap

There have been murders, cheating, shock announcements and explosive drama (sometimes literally – looking at you, Hollyoaks.)

The soaps, both daytime and primetime, will battle it out to be crowned the best soap after weeks and months of pouring their heart and soul into their performances, writing and direction.

The star-studded ceremony will take place next week, and fans can still go online to Inside Soap’s website to vote for their favourite soap, even up until midday on awards day: Monday 22 October.
