It’s all about the arrivals and exits in soapland next week as Jamie Tate’s (Alexander Lincoln) family arrives in Emmerdale and immediately rubs Kim (Claire King) up the wrong way while Coronation Street is saying goodbye to many of its favourites, albeit temporarily.

In Hollyoaks, a new face is causing problems for Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool) and James Nightgale (Gregory Finnegan) while a familiar face returns to EastEnders – but just is Robbie Jackson (Dean Gaffney) hiding from his family?

In other soapie developments, there’s a double arrest, a massive baby shock, a brand new explosive feud, some overwhelming grief, a confession, a love cheat, a major decision, an ultimatum, the sparks of romance and a horrific accusation.
