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 have 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.

EastEnders:

Casting news: Rachel Bright returns as Poppy next month, while Polly Perkins will leave the role of Rose Cotton later this year.

Spoiler alert:
After getting filled in by Tanya on her father, Alice backs off trying to get to know him. Derek realizes Tanya is responsible and confronts her. When Alice reconsiders and reaches out to her shady dad, Derek threatens Tanya’s life if she sticks her nose in again. What would Alice think?

When Kat returns to Albert Square next month, she gets quite the shock when Roxy admits her feelings for Alfie. Despite her making it clear Alfie rejected her advances, Kate kicks her out of The Queen Vic. Maybe Roxy should just keep her mouth shut.

Coronation Street:

Spoiler alert: Rita gets a surprise as she prepares for her wedding day. Unfortunately it’s not a good one, as Rick kidnaps her after Tina tries to get him out of her and Tommy’s life for good. Apparently her plan doesn’t exactly work.

Tyrone tries to do a nice thing by inviting Kirsty’s parents to a surprise birthday party. It completely backfires on him when Kirsty gets into a fight with her father over her life choices. Sadly, she takes it out on her beau once again. Watch a sneak peek of what goes down on Thursday’s episode. The video might not be available in all areas.
