The shortlist nominations for this year’s British Soap Awards have been revealed. 

Returning live to ITV for the first time in two years owing to the pandemic, the awards will honour the nation’s biggest and most-loved soap operas. 

The ceremony, slated for next month, will celebrate the past twelve months in soap land, where Meena Jutla’s (Paige Sandhu) murderous rampages in Emmerdale will battle it out against Coronation Street’s hate crimes for Best Storyline.

It was an unforgettable year in Albert Square, as Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) made her comeback after seven years. 

Over in Weatherfield, Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) died of injuries sustained in an horrific hate crime. 

Developments in Hollyoaks saw Summer Ranger (Rhiannon Clements) set out to destroy Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) for his role in her father’s death. 

In the Dales, Meena left a trail of murder and mayhem, while Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) and his wife Karen’s (Jan Pearson) relationship was left in the balance in Doctors.
