The Top Ten

1 Eastenders Eastenders EastEnders is a British soap opera; the first episode was broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One on 19 February 1985. EastEnders storylines examine the domestic and professional lives of the people who live and work in the fictional London Borough of Walford in the East End of London.

I really think that Billy Mitchell and Jay would make an excellent Del Boy and Rodney, should anyone decide to revamp Only Fools and Horses? They even look a little like them, I think. And they have the same comedic value as Del Boy and Rodney. - Britgirl

I've grown up watching EastEnders, as a girl with my family and now as a woman. Recently, though, Hollyoaks as grabbed my attention. It's a bit like how some would view a marriage: EastEnders is the husband: Ageing, safe, comfortable, sometimes a bit dull, but a comfort blanket of a man.
Hollyoaks is the "other man" is younger, faster and more exciting; fun to be around. BUT...while I like Hollyoaks, I LOVE EastEnders: my safe, ageing, sometimes dull but lovely warm comfort blanket which I can't give up to anything else. - Britgirl

Best. All the others copy it.

UNLIKE ALL THE OTHER SAD EXCUSES FOR T.V. SHOWS HERE, THE CAST CAN ACT AND THE WRITERS CAN (get this) WRITE! OH, AND EMMERDALE< HOLLYOAKS AND MOCTLY CORONATION ...STOP COPYING EASTENDERS

2 Emmerdale

Brilliant

Emmerdale is incredible. their storylines are extremely unique and their characters are great.

Emmerdale is much better than corrie and eastenders

By FAR the best

3 Coronation Street Coronation Street Coronation Street is a British soap opera created by Granada Television and shown on ITV since 9 December 1960. The programme centres on Coronation Street in Weatherfield, a fictional town based on inner-city Salford.
