by Lynn Connolly

Voting for this year’s Inside Soap Awards is now underway, and as ever, there’s stiff competition for all the top honours.

Inside Soap editor Steven Murphy told the Daily Star, “With tram crashes, baby swaps, wedding day revenges and serial killers, it’s been a rollercoaster year for the soaps.

“We can’t wait to find out who our Inside Soap magazine readers have named as their favourites this year.

“The competition is tougher than ever, so it could go any way when those envelopes are finally opened.

“The Inside Soap Awards is always a great night, and those soap stars just love to celebrate, so I’m looking forward to a really fantastic evening.”
