Full Christmas and New Year schedules revealed for your favourite soaps!

You won't want to miss this!

It's going to be a black Christmas this year... and we don't mean when you accidentally burn the pigs in blanket, because you put them in the oven and then drank too much sherry and forgot about them!

No, we mean in the soaps, where producers have promised us explosive secrets tumbling out, illicit (and illegal) kisses, a new baby and a shock death (at least one!).

Even Marlon's surprise wedding in Emmerdale goes disastrously wrong!
