Coronation Street

Liam sat on a bench wearing his school uniform and blue jacket. He looks upset

It's been a phenomenal year on the cobbles, with several storylines taking centre stage and the talented Coronation Street cast pulling out all the stops for some fantastic performances. From Paul's (Peter Ash) motor neurone disease storyline to Liam (Charlie Wrenshall) suffering at the hands of evil bully Mason (Luca Toolan) and Daisy's (Charlotte Jordan) love triangle with Ryan (Ryan Prescott) and Daniel (Rob Mallard), Corrie has gone out of its way to deliver the goods.

It's been a remarkable year on EastEnders, which really kicked off in February 2023 when a flash-forward revealed there would be a Christmas Day death – and a whodunnit mystery to add. Since that moment, fans were plunged into a world of theories, speculation and a whole load of drama. At the heart of the year were The Six, made up of Stacey (Lacey Turner), Suki (Balvinder Sopal), Linda (Kellie Bright), Sharon (Letitia Dean), Denise (Diane Parish) and Kathy (Gillian Taylforth), who all had their huge storylines over the year. Outside of this frankly enormous arc was the surprise return of Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins), back from the dead, with a big story to tell with new family, the Knights. It just hasn't been any bigger than this.


In a stylised shot to promote a domestic abuse storyline on Emmerdale, Belle sits with a purple top on while Tom stands behind her menacingly. She has her hands clasped in front of her and a concerned look on her face. Tom is in black, with one arm in front, his hand clenched in a fist next to Belle. He has a stern look on his face. They are in front of a dark green background.

There have been twists and turns a-plenty in Emmerdale over the past 12 months, with surprise returns, deaths and unions taking place regularly – plus, one epic car crash stunt as well. Phew. From Rishi's (Bhasker Patel) surprise death, troublesome Ruby's (Beth Cordingly) arrival and Mandy's (Lisa Riley) reunion with Paddy (Dominic Brunt) to Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) and Tom's (James Chase) abusive relationship, Emmerdale has given us unmissable drama every night.

There's never a quiet day in Hollyoaks, with the Channel 4 soap once more pulling out show-stopping performances in gripping storylines for another 12 months. We've seen exits ranging from the tearful – Romeo (Owen Warner) – to the downright explosive – Ella (Erin Palmer) – and so many twists we can barely keep count, including Mercedes's (Jennifer Metcalfe) twins father reveal and Dilly's (Emma Johnsey-Smith) identity.
