Coronation Street, EastEnders and Hollyoaks have topped the nominations list for the tenth annual All About Soap Bubble Awards.

The trio of serials lead the way in this year's shortlist, picking up eight nominations each for the storylines, scandals, stunts and style of the past 12 months.

Emmerdale has six nominations across the ceremony's eight categories, while Channel 5's Australian soaps Neighbours and Home and Away have picked up one nod each.

The Bubble awards are the first fully-fledged soap awards of the year and the winners are determined solely by the votes of All About Soap readers, allowing fans to have their say on the events of the past year.

This year's 'Best Actor' category will be a battle between Coronation Street's Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow), EastEnders' Jake Wood (Max Branning), Emmerdale's Danny Miller (Aaron Livesy) and Hollyoaks' Emmett Scanlan (Brendan Brady).

Meanwhile, the 'Best Actress' prize will be contested by Weatherfield's Katherine Kelly (Becky McDonald), Walford's Jessie Wallace (Kat Moon), Dales star Lucy Pargeter (Chas Dingle) and Hollyoaks' Claire Cooper (Jacqui McQueen).

Corrie's tram crash, the Queen Vic fire on Albert Square, Emmerdale's train crash and Hollyoaks' Il Gnosh blaze are in the running for 'Best Stunt', while Michelle Keegan, Charlie Brooks, Jennifer Metcalfe and Jorgie Porter will be going head-to-head in the 'Best Celeb Style' stakes.

The other four categories are 'Best Newcomer', 'Best Baby Drama', 'Best Comeback' and 'Best Love Triangle'.

Speaking of the battle ahead, All About Soap's editor Johnathon Hughes told DS: "These awards are always competitive for the soaps, as it's the public who are voting - just like the battle for ratings, winning the most awards shows who has the most loyal fans. It can get very close to call as soap fans are so passionate and love to have their say."

Voting will open on Tuesday, February 15 via the All About Soap website and an awards form in the magazine's next issue. The poll closes on Monday, February 28.
