BBC Think Soap Awards Panel Is Unfair
The BBC have reportedly been complaining about the number of ITV executives on the panel choosing the winners of this years British Soap Awards.
A BBC source told the Daily Star Sunday: “The panel isn’t fair. It’s made up of executives from ITV as well as critics and representatives from each soap. But there isn’t much impartiality and a lot of the voting is tactical. It’s a bit of a fix.”
An awards spokesman insisted: “It’s a fairly-weighted panel. The other categories are all viewer voted.”
