Coronation Street:
Spoiler alert: A new couple will emerge when Tracy and Rob start hooking up next year. While there may be some attraction between the schemer and the bad boy, they’re also hoping their tryst ruffles the feathers of the true objects of their affections Steve and Michelle.

Kirsty plans a surprise party for Tyrone’s 30th birthday, but it looks like she’s blown off the milestone. Fiz stops by her pal’s place to help him celebrate and one thing leads to another. As the exes turned friends kiss, Kirsty shows up for Tyrone. Things could turn pretty ugly for Tyrone if his abusive fiancée catches him with Fiz. Here’s hoping he can hide her in time.

Spoiler alert: A suspicious Alfie tells Kat he’s heading out of town. But instead, he sticks around and follows Kat to the room where she used to meet her lover. When confronted, Kat insists the mystery man hasn’t accepted they’re over so she’s there to put an end to it once and for all. While there, Alfie spots a paper with the man’s name on it. Will he finally learn who Kat’s former lover is, or will Kat spring into action and prevent that from happening?

The secrets are coming out this Christmas on “EastEnders.” Take a look at all the drama that’s to come in the video below, which might not be available in all areas.


Spoiler alert: Rachel goes into labor despite the fact that she isn’t due for a couple more months. The labor reportedly goes smoothly, but her son isn’t in the clear just yet. Even though Jai still wants to keep the fact that he is the father a secret, he stops by to see his child. Will Rachel allow the visits to continue?

Even though she didn’t do it, Chas stands trial for Carl’s death and her scorned niece Debbie plans to make sure she goes away for the murder. Still reeling from her aunt’s affair with Cameron, Debbie intends to present damning testimony against her when she takes the stand.

The British soap will once again be seen in Australia and New Zealand. In 2013, “Hollyoaks” will join the UKTV network, which airs “Coronation Street,” “EastEnders” and “Emmerdale.”
