The British Soap Awards returns for the first time in three years – here are the categories YOU can vote in

THE British Soap Awards have been confirmed to return in June 2022.

Following a two-year delay due to the pandemic, the The British Soap Awards will be back this summer on ITV.

Hosted by Phillip Schofield, the live awards will be presented by an array of well-known faces from across the TV and showbiz world.

The awards will take place in London at The Hackney Empire and will honour the nation’s biggest and most-loved soap operas.

The five biggest soaps – Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks – will be battling it out to win recognition for their work over the past year. 

The returning award ceremony will celebrate a mammoth year in soap opera, looking back on twelve months of murder, mystery, make-ups, break ups, trials, tribulations and tears.
