Stephen Mulhern hosts The Big Soap Quiz Coronation St vs Emmerdale on Friday 6 Jan, 2017 at 9.00pm, as stars from ITV’s big two soaps are tested on the biggest events and the funniest moments in the Dales and on the cobbles during 2016. With a combined run of 100 years on screen, Coronation Street and Emmerdale remain ITV’s two top-rated shows, and 2016 has been a typically dramatic and critically acclaimed year for both.
With a devastating and impressively staged car crash, a moving and ground-breaking dementia plot and countless Home Farm scandals among the main storylines, Emmerdale has continued to go from strength to strength in the past year, while Coronation Street has had a similarly action-packed 2016 with the departure of several well-loved characters, more than one wedding disaster, and storylines covering everything from fraud to family reunions, miscarriages of justice to murder and secret affairs to Sally’s rise to political power.
Stephen cannot promise as much drama in the studio as teams from each show step up to prove who knows their own storylines best, but there will certainly be a fierce competition as the Leeds-based Emmerdale clan of Mark Charnock, Natalie J Robb, Chris Bisson and Matthew Wolfenden take on Manchester-and-proud Corrie pals Jack P Shepherd, Catherine Tyldesley, Daniel Brocklebank and Dolly Rose Campbell! Who will emerge victorious as the two teams battle it out for supremacy?
