Can Emmerdale win the Big Soap Quiz?
Christmas means it is time for the cast of Emmerdale take on Coronation Street in the Big Soap Quiz 2018 – but can Emmerdale finally end Corrie’s winning streak?
It is time for the annual clash of the titans as Emmerdale take on Coronation Street in the Big Soap Quiz, hosted by Stephen Mulhern. Unbelievable.
Now in its fifth outing, Emmerdale has only won once in the past four titanic battles with Coronation Street winning in the first year back in 2011. After a few years off our screens, the quiz returned in 2016 with a win for the Dales but since then the Cobbles of Corrie have won in 2017 and January 2018.
So can team captain Mark Charnock aka Marlon Dingle, who has taken part in each quiz, and his two debut supporting acts Tony Audenshaw (Bob Hope) and Sandra Marvin (Jessie Grant) steal Corrie’s crown?
They will face off against Coronation Street team captain Jack P Shephard (David Platt) who is joined by Sally Ann Matthews (Jenny Bradley) and Victoria Ekanoye (Angie Appleton).
The teams will face numerous rounds testing how well they know their own shows, cast mates and storylines along with some surprise guests, which in previous years have included soap legend Julie Goodyear and even Shadrach Dingle in full character! There’s also a lot of banter as all the teams are good mates off screen – and none of them are competitive…much!
The winners get a trophy to add to their extensive awards cabinets and bragging rights that can be used at every other award show throughout the coming year. And with Corrie putting a stop to Emmerdale winning streak of the Best Soap accolade, soap pride is at stake.
Don’t miss the Big Soap Quiz: Coronation Street v Emmerdale on Friday 21 December at 9pm on ITV.
