Soap Lather

‘IN a piece of brazen vote-rigging that would make even the Bush brothers blush, EastEnders is going to be named Best Soap at the Inside Soap awards in a couple of weeks’ time.

The sexiest woman in soaps?

The BBC soap may be more of a turn-off than Vanessa Feltz in her sexiest lingerie, but that won’t stop the residents of Walford lording it over their Coronation Street rivals.

And to cap it all Albert Square’s Kat Slater (aka Jessie Wallace) will probably be named Sexiest Woman In Soaps, evidence of why our ancestors resisted the universal franchise for so long.

It is the equivalent of George Bush winning Mastermind, King Alfred winning Masterchef and Ben Affleck winning a Best Actor Oscar – all rolled into one.

If there was a Watching Paint Dry award, we can understand why EastEnders would be in with a good shout, but unless the purpose of a soap is to put its dwindling audience into a coma, then how come it is the best?

Even Emmerdale can feel aggrieved – and they’ll be positively spitting on Hollyoaks.’
