We go backstage at the soap awards shoot (PHOTOS)

Last week we published some photos from a special British Soap Awards 2008 publicity shoot – now it’s time to go behind the scenes… We assembled some of the nominees from Britain’s most-loved soaps, including Alison King and Anthony Cotton from Coronation Street, Rob Kazinsky and Jo Joyner from EastEnders, James Sutton and Zoe Lister from Hollyoaks, Matt Healey and Nicola Wheeler from Emmerdale, and Doctors’ Matthew Chambers and Elizabeth Bower. As you’ll be able to see, there’s a lot of organisation – and tomfoolery – that goes into a shoot like this… CLICK HERE TO SEE THE BEHIND-THE-SCENES PHOTOS Of course, the British Soap Awards are as much about the fans as the actors, so there are six categories, including Best Soap and Villain of the Year, which are awarded based solely on viewers’ votes.
