The British soaps are a source of great national pride. Coronation Street, Emmerdale and EastEnders – with a combined history of 150 years – entertain millions of fans every single week.
All three top soaps have delivered some incredible drama – from serial killer Richard Hillman’s rampage in Corrie, to Holly Barton’s shock death in Emmerdale and Sharon’s affair with brother-in-law Phil Mitchell.
National treasures from Sarah Lancashire and Suranne Jones to Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Barbara Windsor have passed through the shows.
ED! brings soap fans all the best spoilers, news and explainers – and our dedicated team of writers love the storylines and characters as much as their loyal viewers.
