Emmerdale Triumphs At TV Choice Awards

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap.  There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.  

Well, it looks as though congratulations are in order for Emmerdale who’ve finally managed to win, not just one, but three gongs at the TV Choice Awards earlier this week (they’re just like buses;you wait ages for one, and three turn up at the same time).

The prizes were won by Emmerdale actor Danny Miller, best know to us as Aaron Livesy, who walked away with the gong for Best Soap Actor. His ‘stable mate’ (well, we are discussing Emmerdale) Adam Thomas, who plays Adam Barton on the show, took best Soap Newcomer, while the plot which saw Aaron struggle with his sexuality won Best Soap Storyline. 

That’s real good news for Emmerdale, cos over the years it appears as though the show’s been banished to  the soap wilderness when it comes to winning prizes at award ceremonies (if you recall, earlier this year Emmerdale were completely snubbed at  the National Soap Awards). Let’s just hope that their triumph at the TV Choice Awards signals the start of good things to come for the soap. 

Other winners on the night were EastEnders who celebrated its 25th anniversary by winning Best Soap. ‘Enders actress Lacey Tuner, who announced earlier this year that she’ll be leaving the show, also picked up the prize for Best Soap Actress, for her performance as Stacey Branning. Meanwhile, Coronation Street were also honoured on the night with a special prize to mark what will be the shows’ 50th year on screen in December.

So, what do you think soapsters, were Emmerdale worthy winners at the TV Choice Awards? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment.

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me tomorrow for the result of this weeks caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me (but keep it clean!).

Emmerdale Star Says No To Pop Career

Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.

Emmerdale actress, Suzanne Shaw, who first found fame in Hear ‘Say after winning Popstars, has recently admitted that she’s not interested in re-launching her pop career.

During a web chat on Emmerdale’s official website, when asked if she prefers acting or singing, the star replied: "It’s a hard one," she said. "I’m just very lucky to experience all kinds of things in the showbiz world.”  When asked whether she’d ever consider re-launching her pop career, Suzanne stated:"I am very passionate about my acting…although I love musical theatre the pop industry isn’t something I would want to return to…but never say never!"

Now, as we all know, Suzanne Shaw’s gone on to do pretty well for herself since the days of Popstars.  The 28-year-old actress  has appeared in musical theatre, she also won the 2008 series of ITV’s Dancing On Ice, before landing a role in Emmerdale earlier this year.  However, judging by the statements made by the ex pop star, it looks like a Hear ‘Say reunion isn’t likely to  happen any time soon.

Anyway soapsters, just in case you’re depressed  at the thought of never ever hearing another Hear ‘Say record again, here’s a reminder of why the soap star has probably decided to stick to acting. Hear’Say.

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more news and gossip and don’t forget to enter this week’s capion competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me (but keep it clean!).

EastEnders’ Minty proposes to Sam

 
Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh. What’s going on in the soaps this week? Let’s find out (spoilers ahead).
 
EastEnders w/e Friday 27 August 
 
Before we talk about poor old Minty, a bit of news; when Robert Kazinsky, best known as EastEnders’ Sean Slater, announced he was leaving the show, it was with the hope of landing different roles and maybe, cracking America.
 
Now we hear that he is among celebrities rumoured to have signed up for Strictly Come Dancing. It just wouldn’t be Strictly without an ex-Enders star or two. But what a come down for Robert Kazinsky if this report turns out to be true…
 
They’re an unlikely couple, but that doesn’t stop Minty from popping the question to Sam. He tells her that he’s always loved her – you don’t need to be Einstein to see where this storyline is going.
 
Meanwhile, Ian and Jane are shocked when their kids are accused of cheating. At Christian’s flat, Syed feels really bad because he’s broke and has to ask Christian for money. Christian offers Syed a job and Syed reluctantly accepts.
 
Max is stunned when Dot presents him with a gift. Jane discovers that Ian has betrayed her. Heather gets a scare, but Minty’s there to help. Christian and Roxy’s drunken behaviour alarms Syed. Jane stands firm over a massive decision. Tamwar refuses to pretend that his brother doesn’t exist. Jane’s left reeling when Zsa Zsa lets the truth about Lucy’s abortion slip.
 
Later, Jane tells Denise that she plans to bide her time before showing Ian just how much he’s hurt her. Minty’s devastated when Sam brushes off the fact that she agreed to marry him.
 
Also on EastEnders this week:
Vanessa gives Abi a makeover
Max has a go at Darren
Bradley is remembered by his loved ones
 
 
 
Emmerdale w/e Friday 27 August 
 

Emmerdale star Danny Miller has apparently been attacked by two drunken idiots because he plays a gay teenager. The incident happened in Manchester, but thankfully – Danny escaped unharmed. This is an absolute disgrace – it’s a lot for a 19-year-old to have to deal with. I hope Danny Miller continues to play young Aaron Livesy and doesn’t let this upset him too much. There are idiots everywhere unfortunately. Let’s hope they catch those thugs.

To the soap itself and things are heating up as Carl and Eve share a passionate kiss… is this the beginning of a sordid affair? Maisie confesses her fears to Nikhil. Elsewhere, Nicola’s upset because she missed Angelica’s first word. John’s search for Holly proves fruitless and tensions grow as Mark’s funeral approaches. Marlon hopes this is the real deal with Rhona – well, we all know his luck with women, don’t we?

Maisie knows Ryan’s innocent, but hides her belief that Nathan’s guilty. Carl tries to lure Eve back into his arms. Maisie’s stunned that Sam’s kept a secret about Mark. Marlon decides to ask Rhona a very important question. Chas unwittingly pushes Carl and Eve together.

Cain’s confession confirms Maisie’s worst fears. Eve and Carl continue their dangerous liaison. Nathan and Natasha fear Maisie’s onto them. David’s thrown as Leyla tries to hide where she’s been. Marlon’s disappointed by Rhona’s lack of enthusiasm about moving her stuff into Tall Trees.

Also on Emmerdale this week:
Nathan steals Maisie’s phone
Ryan loses control at the prison
Hannah catches Holly sneaking around 
 
 
Coronation Street w/e Friday 27 August 
 
Vicky Entwistle has told the News of the World that she’s leaving Coronation Street because fans think that she really is Janice Battersby. Her husband encouraged her to explore other acting opportunities. Well, it won’t be easy for her. Not many soap stars break free of the bubbles. However, I’ll be positive and say: good luck Vicky!
 
On’t cobbles this week, Becky feels nervous and under pressure as she faces the adoption panel with Steve… will she wreck her chances? Natasha desperately tries to make Nick believe her pregnancy lie. Oh dear – you just know that it will all end in Natasha’s tears.
 
Owen asks Eileen out on a date (can someone please give her a decent boyfriend for a change? It’s about time Eileen had a love life again). Becky and Steve receive the adoption panel’s decision.
 
Natasha’s odd behaviour arouses Fiz’s suspicions. Meanwhile, Sophie turns to Sunita after rowing with Sian. Becky tracks down her half sister with explosive results. Must admit, I’m not too keen on this storyline about Becky’s sister but it’s early days – so we’ll see.
 
Dev and Sunita are distraught as Aadi collapses with a serious mystery injury. Becky’s half sister causes havoc in the Rovers. Norris finds an intriguing letter from the 1960s addressed to Ken. A shocked Dev and Sunita find themselves under suspicion of causing Aadi’s injuries. Elsewhere, Hayley has more than one surprise at her hen night. Becky’s actions after Kylie and Michelle’s fight tears the Rovers apart.
 
Also on Coronation Street this week:
Kylie sets her sights on Ciaran
Claire makes a shocking discovery about Sophie and Sian
Sally plans a family meal
 
 
Hollyoaks w/e Friday 27 August 
Former Brookside actress and Hollyoaks newcomer Alex Fletcher has admitted that she lost confidence after becoming a mother. However, the 34-year-old is thrilled to have landed the role of stepmum-of-two Diane O’Connor, where she is working with her former Brookie boss Paul Marquess. She’ll be a great addition to Hollyoaks – I’ve no doubt about it.
 
So to the show itself and the Costellos are reeling from Mitzeee’s earth-shattering revelation. Meanwhile, Michaela exits the SU excitedly, knowing that she’s got her scoop. A venting Cindy demands to know the truth about Tony and Gabby. Meanwhile, Cheryl and Brendan shop in Drive ‘n’ Buy, unaware that Veronica’s spying on them. To Theresa’s horror, a hungover Myra’s determined to sue Tony for her ‘accident’.
 
As Tony prepares for Il Gnosh’s food fair, a scheming Amber’s set to cause chaos. Veronica shows up demanding money from Brendan. Cheryl tells Brendan that Lynsey has some good news: she’s inherited £20,000. Brendan sets fire to his balaclava before filling Veronica in on the crime he’s committed. Elsewhere, Rhys receives festival tickets from Josh and excitedly plans to take his new internet friend.
 
Malachy warns Brendan that he’s going to stick to him like glue until he gets proof that Brendan robbed Chez Chez. Cindy’s in a fluster, anxiously awaiting her date with Alistair.
 

Also on Hollyoaks this week:
Veronica blackmails Brendan
A dramatic mix-up benefits Cindy
Brendan steals money from the club
