Presenter Stephen Mulhern returns to host the quiz show where stars from ITV’s two biggest soaps go head-to head in a battle of wits. In what is now a yearly tradition, favourites from both shows compete to prove who knows their soap best.
Contestants are quizzed on the all the year’s action from down in the Dales, and the most memorable events to hit the Weatherfield cobbles – as well as being asked to recall some of the funniest moments from each show. The show is packed with hilarious moments as the stars discuss some of the highlights from their soaps.
But as the rivalry heats up, will there be more drama than an episode of Emmerdale? Last year’s team captains, Mark Charnock (who plays Marlon Dingle) from Emmerdale and Jack P Shepherd (David Platt) from Coronation Street, return to face each other once more.
Joining Mark on the Emmerdale team are Amy Walsh (Tracy Metcalfe), Michelle Hardwick (Vanessa Woodfield) and Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk). Battling alongside David to prove that Corrie stars are the real soap brainboxes are Shayne Ward (Aidan Connor), Tina O’Brien (Sarah Platt) and Bhavna Limbachia (Rana
Nazir). Who will triumph this year?
The Big Soap Quiz: Coronation Street V Emmerdale airs Friday 5 January 2018 from 9.00pm on ITV.
