... As a boyfriend he’d probably drive me mad though – far too nice and accommodating! Slightly off topic, but the Neighbour’s website still has the Hancock’s as being the residents of Number 32 Ramsey Street, despite their departure a while ago on UK screens – get it together!

Ooooh they make me all in a lather

AdvantagesWe love to hate many of them, soaps provide great escapism

DisadvantagesI end up watching ALL the soaps just to see my favourites

"...she always ended up on top against the men (in more ways than one!). Unfortunately I haven’t succeeded in finding a good Knotts Landing web site, so if anyone knows of one then please leave a message in my guest book. TWO PETE CALLAN ~ FAMILY AFFAIRS www.channel5.co.uk/soaps&drama/family_affairs/fa_character_frame.php Do you remember David Easter in Brookside many years ago? What a much more interesting character he plays now. Pete is ..." Read review

Scrub me down with a little bit of soap

AdvantagesYou can do anything you want with soapland characters

DisadvantagesSometimes they are too far fetched and not true to life

"...Emmerdale so my choices of top ten soap characters come mainly from those three soaps. 10 First of all I'll go back in time to Hilda Ogden of Coronation Street. Married to Stan they lived at number 13, the house now owned by Sally Webster. Hilda’s muriel (mural) and flying ducks were to her status symbols while to others they were a joke. Hilda had barnies with just about everybody in the street, more often than not in defence of her Stan. ..." Read review

Advantagessee op


"...her living room wall, no top ten best soap characters list could ever be complete without Hilda Ogden, especially if you are my age or older (I am 29) and of course a Coronation Street Fan. That voice, I still remember when she sang in the Rovers Return what a great character. 6. Helen Daniels from Neighbours, she was in it form the beginning up until a few years ago, the actress who played her died shortly after her character died in the soap, ..." Read review

Icons of Soap Land

AdvantagesAll great actors/actresses

DisadvantagesShame when they leave

"...box now. Therefore, my top 10 characters are from these two. Here we go... 1) KEN BARLOW - CORONATION STREET Is he the longest character in Coronation Street? He's been in it a lot of years, I know. He's gone from being a teacher to a supermarket trolley pusher. He's been married, had girlfriends, been cheated on and become a dad in the 30 something years he's been there. For a man of his age, he's still dashingly handsome with an excellant physique ..."

"...mounting, I humbly present my top ten soap characters... 10) Nana Moon (Eastenders) Awwww, Nana Moon. One of the only redeeming things about Eastenders these days. And she only appears once every few weeks. The endearingly loveable batty old pensioner and the one good thing about the Moon clan (can't stand that Alfie, and those gangster brothers are a waste of time). 9) Kathy Mitchell (Eastenders) Gillian Taylforth, the actress who played ..."
