If you like your drama with a helping of death and destruction, then ITV is the place to be, as Coronation Street and Emmerdale are set to air their most ambitious weeks EVER!
The broadcaster’s signature Super Soap Week is back, following a hiatus last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and therefore you can expect disaster and murder aplenty.
As real and metaphorical storm clouds gather over the famous cobbles, the residents of Coronation Street make plans for Halloween parties and holidays, oblivious to the tragedies waiting around the corner.
Revenge plots, explosions and sinkholes collide in what is expected to be one of the serial drama’s biggest weeks ever.
Emmerdale, similarly, is not holding back, as Meena Jutla claims her next victim amid the survival challenge, in epic scenes featuring FOUR stunts and a huge waterfall sequence.
If that’s not enough horror to quench your thirst, Hollyoaks is right up your street too, as longtime villain Warren Fox decides to seek hellish revenge on Felix Westwood.
EastEnders, while offering a quieter week than its rivals, sees a number of interesting developments for Gray Atkins and Janine Butcher – some that will change EVERYTHING.
If you’re simply dying to know more, we’ve got you covered, with a hand-picked selection of the biggest 25 moments that next week’s soaps have to offer.
