Letitia Dean's return to EastEnders as long-time fave Sharon Rickman (more famously, Sharon Watts) has fans of the soap very excited.

EastEnders' Sharon and Phil

When we see Sharon on screen - during the week of August 13 - she's in her wedding dress and in "desperate need of Phil's help".

 

A brilliant trailer has been released by the BBC as part of pre-promotion for Shazza coming back. Watch it below.

After seven years away, it's only fitting that show bosses go that extra mile to herald a long-awaited return.

Not a week goes by without a story linking an unlikely celebrity to Coronation Street or EastEnders; step forward Kim Kardashian!

According to The Sun, the 31-year-old US reality TV star and socialite is said to be hoping for a role in one of the soaps.

 

On a recent visit to the UK, Kim - who features in Keeping Up With The Kardashians alongside other members of her family - apparently watched Corrie and EastEnders.

Antiques dealer Anthony Moon is to leave EastEnders. The character, played by actor Matt Lapinskas, will head out of Albert Square after less than a year.

 

Confirming his exit, Matt said: "I'm having a fantastic time working on EastEnders and playing the role of Anthony Moon. Working with David Essex, Tony Discipline and the EastEnders cast has been an absolute pleasure."

 

He added: "Although I will really miss EastEnders and everyone involved, I am very excited about future projects and what is next for me as an actor."

Hello and welcome to caption competition time. Our picture this week features Cain and Zak  from Emmerdale; as you can see they're dangerously close to falling off a ledge. The caption I've come up with is:
 
"Listen to me Zak... not winning Sexiest Male at the British Soap Awards doesn't mean you have to end it all!"

Welcome to another slice of soap. A lot going on, so let's get on with it! Don't forget to try this week's caption competition. It's really easy. All you have to do is come up with a line to make us all laugh. You can enter as many times as you like.


 

EastEnders w/e Friday 4 May

 

Jay feels trapped at the Mitchell house and asks Shirley if he can move in with her.

Phil's not happy. Meanwhile, Carol's finding it hard to cope.

Enders' talking point: EastEnders is facing criticism that it's too dreary and depressing again. This is due to the way Patsy Palmer, who plays Bianca, was written out. Do you agree? Do you think the BBC soap should be more uplifting?

In the biggest night of the soap awards calendar, Coronation Street and EastEnders have ended up sharing seven prizes each. The British Soap Awards will be televised by ITV1 this Wednesday.

The night saw some predictable winners in the viewer voted categories (such as EastEnders winning Best Soap) and some weird results in the panel voted section; how can Coronation Street's Natalie Gumede (who plays Kirsty Soames) win over Jamie Foreman in EastEnders? That makes no sense in my opinion.
