What will happen at The British Soap Awards Live?
The soaps go head-to-head, in both the regular categories and a special Greatest Moment award, to celebrate the British Soap Awards’ 20th year.
Coronation Street is the soap to beat this year, leading the pack with 16 nominations, while Connor McIntyre, who plays serial killer Pat Phelan, is up for four prizes: Best Actor, Villain of the Year, Best Male Dramatic Performance and Best Storyline. Corrie’s Lucy Fallon is also up for multiple awards for her role as Bethany Platt.
EastEnders has had a bumpy year, and are relying on Max Branning’s (Jake Wood) revenge plot. They’re also favourites for the special Greatest Moment award, with the famed 2001 “you ain’t my mother” scene.
The night is hosted by Phillip Schofield at The Hackney Empire in London.
