Channel 4's Hollyoaks has received the most nominations on the shortlist for this year's British Soap Awards.


The Chester-set drama has picked up 20 nominations, with rivals EastEnders getting 15, Coronation Street on 14, Emmerdale with 12 and Doctors landing eight.

Prominent Hollyoaks storylines such as the sexual assault of John Paul McQueen in January 2014 and the fatal blast of October 2013 have been recognised on the shortlist, with EastEnders newcomer Danny Dyer also attracting attention in a number of categories.

The death of Hayley Cropper on Coronation Street is also reflected with Julie Hesmondhalgh and David Neilson up for Best Actress and Best Actor respectively. Emmerdale's Woolpack siege is a contender for Spectacular Scene of the Year, with Dominic Power's performance as Cameron Murray getting a nod for Villain of the Year.

The second round of viewer voting has now opened and will close on Friday 23 May at 3pm.
