Americans aren’t the only ones with good soapy drama. Soaps.com has listened to our readers from across the pond who’ve written in to request we keep tabs on a few British and Australian soap operas. Take a look at what’s to come on Daytime serials from other parts of the world.

Congratulations to Jacqueline Jossa (Lauren), who recently won the Newcomer award at the National Television Awards, which are voted on by the viewers.

Jessie Wallace (Kat) will be written out of the show for three months so she can deal with her broken engagement to Vince Morse, who reportedly sent racy photos of her to another woman. Expect Kat to leave town to take care of her father Charlie after suffering a stroke.

Coronation Street:
The show won the Serial Drama award and Katherine Kelly (Becky) won for Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards. Congratulations!

Spoiler alert: Peter and Carla’s affair is exposed when photos of the two are passed around during Frank’s trial. After Leanne sees them, she tells her husband she is willing to stay with him since he forgave her for her own indiscretions with Nick last year. Now, Peter must decide if he wants to stay with his wife or his lover.

Also, considering Betty Driver, who has played Betty Williams since 1969, passed away last October, the show will address the character’s passing onscreen as well. Look for familiar faces from the past to return for her funeral in April. There will also reportedly be a discovery of a secret Betty was keeping.

Spoiler alert: This week on “Emmerdale,” Cameron is none too pleased to find Andy comforting Debbie, Moira sees John and Chas flirting, Val and Eric argue about her trip to Portugal and Rodney goes to court.

Also, look for the King brothers to get thrown into the mix more this year. Tom Lister (Carl) told Inside Soap they will become a more powerful presence in the village when they build up their business. In addition, Chas’ love life could also become front and center again.
