Philip Schofield returns to present these awards at Manchester’s Lowry Theatre. Last year it was Coronation Street that was the big winner, taking “Best British Soap”, “Best Actor”, “Best Actress” and “Villain of the Year”. Obviously, we all know the nominations for “Best British Soap” given that there about only five on air: Corrie, EastEnders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Doctors. Most of the action in these soaps has no doubt been on the more tragic side, but it will be difficult to tell what exactly will come out on top in tonight’s awards. The British Soap Awards is on ITV at 20.00.
