Nominations for best storyline include Abi's battle for baby Alfie in Coronation Street, John Paul's alcoholism in Hollyoaks, and Ben's rape and Jean's bi polar storylines in EastEnders.
"Even in a world of battling streaming services, the soaps remain the most-watched shows on TV, and their main characters the biggest stars in Britain", Gary Gallet who is editor of the Insider Soap Magazine said. "To celebrate 30 glorious, ridiculous years of Inside Soap, we're offering our readers - the best-informed viewers there are - this chance to celebrate the absolute best of the best".
