The soaps kicked off the new year with a bang, but next week, they take things to the next level, with one even featuring a huge explosion.
Consider us excited!
We are, of course, referring to Hollyoaks’ unmissable hour-long outing on Tuesday, which will see the Channel 4 soap feature its first stunt since the pandemic.
Lives are on the line, chaos ensues and the spectacle is nothing short of superb.
It’s not just literal explosions that are on offer next week, however, as there are many explosive scenes across all our favourite serial dramas, including Yasmeen Metcalfe’s discovery that Zeedan Nazir has been lying to her in Coronation Street.
EastEnders, meanwhile, sees the return of the icon that is Pam Coker, as she makes a comeback in the wake of the homophobic attack that left Ben Mitchell and Callum Highway in a bad way.
And as for Emmerdale? Well, HOW LONG HAVE YOU GOT? All the goss you’re no doubt craving is below, so we’ll just say that the ITV soap is not to be missed next week, as Meena Jutla’s murderous rampage reaches another dramatic peak.
1. Summer and Amy are horrified to find Max looking at an upskirting photo, and Summer later discovers that the picture in question is of her. Asha insists that she report the incident to the police. Summer, however, feels too embarrassed. Amy, meanwhile, tears a strip of Max for violating Summer’s privacy and looking at the picture, and vows to find out who it is that’s taking and circulating the photos.
2. Joseph is being bullied at school. Gemma and Chesney later find out about his ordeal, and they’re devastated. Despite the little boy’s pleas, Chesney heads to the school. When Joseph finds out what he’s done, he’s fuming, and soon enough, he’s nowhere to be found! Chesney wastes little time in starting a search, but his efforts prove fruitless. Afterwards, he returns home, filling Gemma in on the fact that Joseph is missing.
3. Craig goes out for a run and sprains his ankle. Tyrone however, has the perfect solution – or so he thinks! – as he lends Craig a crutch belonging to Ted! Faye later assists Craig in getting into the flat, but she’s horrified when she discovers that he’s using Ted’s crutch. Craig, meanwhile, becomes inquisitive, as he studies the initials etched into the crutch, leaving Emma and Faye concerned.
4. Tim spends the night at the cab office, and when he returns home, he reassures Sally he hasn’t gone ‘off’ her. Aggie, meanwhile, offers him some advice, insisting that he return to see the cardiologist, explaining that he’ll tell him what the operation will entail. He ultimately does just that, but upon learning that he’ll receive a letter with a date, he is left incredibly scared.
5. Sally is shocked when she discovers that Sophie has broken her wrist in an accident in Crete. She relays the upsetting news to Tim, who was just about to tell her about his own struggles.
6. Yasmeen invites Stu to stay, clearing out the spare room. When doing so, however, she makes a big discovery.

Yasmeen is stunned to silence by his betrayal.
7. Amy encounters Jacob outside of the hospital, and he’s sporting a sling. He approaches, and claims that he’s turned over a new leaf, having got out of the drugs game. But Amy’s not interested, as she tells him to stay away.
8. Neil is on the warpath, as he confronts Aaron and threatens Dana’s life, leaving Harvey concerned.

Harvey, appalled, begs his son to reconsider.
9. Bobby opens up to Callum about his concerns over the far-right, and afterwards, he accidentally spills a drink on Aaron, but in the process, he makes an unnerving discovery. He reveals his fears to Dana, who subsequently confronts her brother. Aaron, however, turns the tables, suggesting that Bobby is manipulating her, and therefore she should come to Manchester with him!
10. Ben is struggling in the wake of the attack, and Callum cannot get him to open up. Pam, however, succeeds in doing so, as she drops by, having heard what happened. Ben breaks down in her arms. Callum, meanwhile, speaks to Kathy and Phil, and together they stage an intervention. Ben admits that he is tired of fighting, revealing that he’s scared for his safety.

13. Mitch and Rocky suggest that Mick get back out into the world of dating, but it’s clear that he’s preoccupied with other things.

But Meena gets the upper hand once more, restraining Manpreet again.
16. Liam is perplexed to find no trace of Meena’s pregnancy or miscarriage in her medical notes, and when he sees blood seeping through a dressing on her wrist, he confronts her. Meena retaliates by threatening to accuse him of sexual harassment, before informing Vinny and Manpreet that Liam’s interference means she’s had to escalate their plans, and thus they’re going to die today. The captives are terrified, as Meena drives the Dingle van into the barn.
