Brace yourself for big hair, sequins and enough fake tan to cover the Humber Bridge – it’s the British Soap Awards.

And if the chance to see your soap favourites in their finery wasn’t enough, there are two additional reasons to tune in.

For the first time ever, the show will be broadcast live, which means there’s plenty of potential for unexpected drama.

Plus, to mark the event’s 20th anniversary, a gong will be presented for Greatest Soap Moment.

EastEnders looks a shoo-in for its iconic ‘You ain’t my muvva!’ scene, but we’re tipping Corrie to come out on top, with wins for the likes of Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt) and Connor McIntyre – better known 
as baddie Pat Phelan.
