Caught in the act on Hollyoaks. (E4)

Extended coverage.

Since Americans aren’t the only ones with good soapy drama, has listened to our readers from across the pond who’ve requested we keep tabs on a few British and Australian soap operas. Take a look at what’s going on with dramas from other parts of the world.


In a shocking and sad turn of real life events, former “EastEnders” actress Gemma McCluskie’s (ex-Kerry) decapitated torso was discovered last week in the Regent’s Canal in Hackney, East London. Her brother has been arrested for the murder.

Executive producer Byran Kirkwood will step down from his position on the soap. “EastEnders” producer Lorraine Newman will fill in.

Spoiler alert:
Phil sets out to protect his son Ben after he kills Heather. It seems Jay is with Ben at the time, so Phil makes it look like Heather was the victim of a burglary and destroys all the evidence linking the two boys. An already freaked out Jay might have more trouble ahead, as the strangely calm Ben snags Jay’s hoodie before Phil can destroy it with the other evidence. Watch your back Jay.

Coronation Street:

Spoiler alert: After discovering who killed Frank Foster, Sally comes face to face with the guilty party and ends up unconscious. Will the killer claim a second victim?

Knowing that her family will be less than pleased by her reunion with former con artist Lewis, the duo keeps their relationship a secret. While they have fun sneaking around, the word eventually gets out and then the sparks really start to fly.


Spoiler alert: Moira isn’t too pleased with her family these days as she blames them for not noticing how unhappy Holly was, which led her back to heroin. She then has doubts over Adam’s role as farm manager and asks Andy to take over.
