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!).
