Vote in the Inside Soap Awards...time is running out!

Charlotte | 10:53 UK time, Wednesday, 22 August 2012


There's only a few more days to vote for the Inside Soap Awards, and remember that the winners are decided entirely by YOU! So make sure you vote now! Here's what some of our nominees had to say:

Hetti Bywater (best newcomer and best bitch) and Chucky Venn (best newcomer and sexiest male):

Hetti Bywater and Chucky Venn
It's a massive shock to be nominated for these awards, I'm completley overwhelmed. Best bitch is one of the edgier awards... although I don't think Lucy has been too much of a bitch lately! Hetti Bywater  
It's an unadulterated pleasure to be nominated. Winning either award would be amazing, especially best newcomer as I always wanted to make a big impact when I came into EastEnders. Please vote! Chucky Venn


Ann Mitchell (funniest female) and Tameka Empson (funniest female):

Tameka Empsom and Ann Mitchell
I'm chuffed to be nominated for this award. Cora's sense of humour is so dry. I love her. She's so much fun to play. Ann Mitchell


I've made you laugh throughout the year, so why not put a smile on my face and vote for me? Tameka Empson


Ricky Norwood (funniest male) and Shane Richie (funniest male and best actor):

Ricky Norwood and Shane Richie
I'm very honoured and excited to be up for this award. If Fatboy has made you chuckle over the last 12 months then please vote! Ricky Norwood  
It's a wonderful honour to be nominated with these two nominations. The day to day adventures of Alfie are always entertaining. I hope the audience don't find Kat's affair funny though! Shane Richie


You can see a full list of the nominees here, and you can vote online until midnight on 26th August 2012.

Nickie | 08:00 UK time, Friday, 17 August 2012

Here's a question that's guaranteed to make your brain melt a bit. Who's your favourite character? As for us... err... um... it's... but then there's... no it's definitely... oh but maybe... etc. Will you find it easier to choose than we do?

Carly Wicks returns to The Square!

Charlotte | 11:13 UK time, Wednesday, 15 August 2012

Kellie Shirley, aka Carly Wicks, is set to return to The Square in two episodes this September.

Speaking of her return to Walford, Kellie said, "It's flattering to be asked to return as Carly for this particular storyline... Carly is coming back slightly older, wiser and independent, although she still needs and loves her mum. The Shirley/Carly dynamic is fun to play and as volatile as ever!"


Carly left The Square in 2008 after her dad's death, and in some of her final scenes claimed that she wished Shirley was dead... charming! The details of her return are still being kept secret, but we doubt it will be happy families when her and Shirley get together... Can they make amends?

Sharon: Slaps and Scraps!

Charlotte | 10:00 UK time, Saturday, 4 August 2012

Sharon's coming back!  She was always quick to hand out a slap or get in a scrap, but which one do you think was her biggest?

Sharon and Chrissie were never going to get on after Chrissie was responsible for Dirty Den's demise

Sharon and Johnny had a long history of conflict, culminating in the untimely death of the love of Sharon's life, Dennis.

But Sharon and Dennis's relationship did not start out smoothly!
