With Euro 2021 causing something of a disruption to the regular soap scheduling pattern, ITV and BBC have, for the first time ever, decided to drop their respective serial dramas in boxset format.
That’s right, as of next Monday, you’ll be able to binge through a weeks worth of action in Albert Square, or watch all of your weekly Weatherfield drama in one viewing!
Pretty revolutionary or what?
And what a week it will be for all of our favourite soap characters, as Coronation Street stalwart Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) returns to the cobbles, and soon realises she’s as trapped as ever as she faces a huge dilemma.
EastEnders, meanwhile, features a special visit from Mick Carter actor Danny Dyer’s very own daughter Dani Dyer, as she pops up in the show as taxi driver Jeanette, who goes into labour with no-one but Mick by her side!
Leyla Harding’s (Roxy Shahidi) wedding day doesn’t go off without a hitch, so to speak, over in Emmerdale, as she spots nemesis Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) in a wedding dress on the big day.
And Liberty Savage (Jessamy Stoddart) vanishes after making a shocking discovery about Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) over in Hollyoaks, which begs the question just how far Sienna will go to keep her secrets hidden?
Whether you decide to consume your soaps all in one go, or simply ration them out as they air, make no mistake, next week is not one to be missed!

Mick assures Linda that, come hell or high-water, he will attend the scan with her. However, when Jeanette the taxi driver goes into labour, he’s forced to stay put.

Mick explains he will love said baby no matter what, but Linda is concerned about Max being involved in the child’s life. What will she do?

Well, ‘lovely’ might be a bit of a strong word given it’s Walford we’re talking about!
