An explosive week awaits in the land of soap (Picture: ITV / BBC / Lime Pictures)

You’d better stock up on the tissues, as next week’s soaps are going to be bringing tears to your eyes, that much we can guarantee.

With the aftermath of a death sending shockwaves through the cobbles, Coronation Street is certainly not to be missed next week.

Mind you, the same could be said about EastEnders, as Linda Carter and Janine Butcher’s feud escalates once more, resulting in a dramatic and deadly car crash!

Perhaps the biggest tear-jerking development will be in Hollyoaks, however, as Luke Morgan dies while on his stag-do in Mallorca, while Nancy Osbourne gives birth to Darren’s baby.

Emmerdale, meanwhile, sees Sarah Sugden contemplate leaving the village, forcing Charity Dingle to take action.

Ahead of all the drama, Metro.co.uk is bringing you all the spoilers you could possibly need.

You’re welcome.
