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.
