Why is Ste naked on Hollyoaks? (Lime Pictures)

Extended coverage.

Since Americans aren’t the only ones with good soapy drama, Soaps.com 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.

Coronation Street:
Spoiler alert: As Lesley’s dementia worsens, Eileen suggests she move into a care home, but Paul won’t hear of it. Things are complicated enough considering Paul is married to Eileen, but involved with Lesley. Now, Lesley is helping to take care of her lover’s wife and he won’t do what’s necessary to look after her. Will what Eileen later walks in on be the last straw?

Are Tina and Tommy finally getting together? Could be, as the two lock lips after she supports him at Geoff Horton’s funeral. Nothing puts people in the mood quicker on a soap opera than grief.

EastEnders:
Spoiler alert: Now that Phil is out of prison, he tries to take back his power. However, that doesn’t exactly sit well with everyone, especially Derek, who is told his services are no longer needed at R&R. Sounds like the start of a new feud, but how exactly does Ben factor in?

While confiding in Alfie about how she almost got involved with an unavailable man – Max – Roxy realizes she has feelings for the Queen Vic landlord. Except, oh yeah, he’s married. Not exactly a step in a healthier direction Roxy.

Emmerdale:
Former “Emmerdale” actress Jenna-Louise Coleman has been cast in “Doctor Who” as the latest companion for the time-traveling Doctor.

Congratulations to Matthew Wolfenden (David) who beat out “Hollyoaks” star Jorgie Porter (Theresa) to win the latest season of “Dancing on Ice.”
