Thursday 18th May 2017

After Emmerdale won the Bafta for best soap this weekend, and having already scooped the best serial drama award at the NTAs earlier in the year, Coronation Street and EastEnders have been put on notice to seriously up their game.

Scriptwriters are continuously devising more convoluted and dramatic plot lines to entice their audiences but it seems that a decision has been made to introduce some new blood into Albert Square to refresh the format.

Recently, with landlords Mick and Linda absent from the Queen Vic, an opportunity arose to introduce Lee Ryan as the manager of the Walford watering hole and next week we are to be introduced to Ted and Joyce Murray played by Christopher Timothy and Maggie Steed.
