Inside Soap editor Steven Murphy said: “The British public have perhaps relied on soaps more than ever this year, and that’s been reflected with the extremely high response we’ve had on the voting for the awards.

“Soaps have brought some form of normality to the lives of so many people in 2020 and, when you look at the finalists, there’s been no shortage of quality or drama.

“We look forward to welcoming fans from across the country for the virtual Inside Soap Awards ceremony next week.”
