Christmas is a time for family and friends to put aside any differences and share some happy warm moments celebrating the last year, exchanging gifts and merriment along the way.

Unless you happen to live in Albert Square, Coronation Street or villages Emmerdale or Hollyoaks.

If you do live in one of the above then Christmas is a time for secrets to spill out over the turkey, affairs to be exposed under the mistletoe and bitter resentment to escalate into murder, in extreme cases.

So, what better way than to make yourself appreciate your life, and your Christmas more, than to sit down and watch the characters from soap land tearing strips out of each other and drowning in misery?

We didn’t think you could think of anything, so grab a marker pen and a calendar because below we have for you the full Christmas line up for all your favourite soaps:
