"get inside info with inside soap"

Inside soap is the weekly must have for me to enable me to keep up to date with all the soaps and to know what is going to happen.

It has all the latest gossip about all the soaps on television such as Eastenders, Corrie, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks.and even the aussie ones such as Home and Away and Neighbours.

It also has the latest storylines about tv dramas such as Casualty, Holby City, The bill and Doctors.

It comes out every week on a Tuesday and is priced at £1.40.

As soon as you look on the cover of the magazine you will find the headlines to the latest soap secrets, These are easy to see and with very bold print so that this will instantly make you want to look inside to find out more.

When you open you copy of Inside soap you will see the editor, Steven Murphy, has written a little bit of what is in the magazine this week with a picture of himself and an email address to contact him!

By the side of that each soap in listed individually and underneath each of these headings is the sub headings of the storylines and the page number it will be on!!

It also has regulars which are:
Inside gossip. This is a 2 page spread with your favourite stars pictured out and about doing their own thing and a little bit of what they were doing when these pictures were taken!

7 Days. This is a guide of entertainment for 7 days, the latest theatre show, the latest dvd out, music album and what you could see on the cinema and in the middle box there is a star of a soap that is called My Favourite and this week its My Favourite.. Live Gig!!

Puzzles. This is a 2 page spread of puzzles to win prizes, one page is the crossword and the questions are all about tv shows, characters ect all that are mentioned in Inside Soap, you can win £150. On the other page there is the Prize Arroword which has a £100 prize and Sudoku and Soapstar Links which are just for fun. Although I`ve never won from Inside Soap.. someone has to so I`ll keep trying!

Soap Box. This is one of my favourites. Its a 2 page spread in which people write in and give their views on the lastest action from the soaps! For every letter and comment they publish you get £10! Also in the soapbox section of the magazine they have Request Spot which is any questions or queries answered. Your Verdict is also on this page and Inside Soap ask the readers questions comparing soaps, such as which soap club do you think is best, which soap hunk.. that kind of thing!

Stars. Your weekly stars, these are predicted by Inside Soap astrologer Jane Dimond.

Inside.. out! This is the final page of the magazine and has the fun stuff that made us laugh in the soaps this week. Also 5 things we didnt know last week about characters in the soaps!
It also has interviews with the stars and a brilliant page called At Your Mercy! where readers can ask the questions for the interview and 3 stars who they are hoping to speak to over the coming weeks so you can send any questions to them.

You can contact Inside soap by email, by post or on facebook.

This is one magazine I would definatly recommend buying, its packed full of so much gossip, stories and interviews, its a must read for me!!

Thanks for reading. Kim xxx

    I don't buy this every week, as it is now £1.50! I still wish it was fortnightly
