Coronation Street fire, EastEnders pregnancy and Neighbours explosion - it's a battle of the soaps for the UK

A tonne of dramatic storylines are coming up in the soaps over the next few weeks, making us pretty much forced to turn down all the *ahem* invitations to cool parties we've had, and obliged to say no to ALL the 'goings-on' we've been asked to attend. Shame really.

With an upcoming fire in the rovers Return for Coronation Street, an EXPLOSION in Neighbours and the newly announced plans for a pregnancy in EastEnders, we're not really sure where to look first.

It's not been made a secret that the corrie flames will see the end for Sunita, played by Shobna Gulati, who told Digital Spy that she's well chuffed about all the drama surrounding her final scenes.

"I'm very, very pleased to have such a big exit storyline," she said.

"It was quite emotional to film, especially when you see The Rovers burning from the inside. Betty's picture goes up in flames, along with lots of other memories. You also have to remember that Sunita was a barmaid, so she had a relationship with the pub."

Neighbours plans to air one of its biggest storylines of the year with Toadie and Sonya's wedding, when the marquee blows up, trapping guests inside and killing off TWO characters. The episode airs next week in Australia and on April 15th in the UK.

Finally, EastEnders writers have revealed a plot where Kirsty Branning will announce that she's pregnant with husband Max's child. A source told the Daily Star Sunday:

"Kirsty turning up as Max's secret wife at Christmas was one of the biggest shocks we've ever had in Albert Square. "But even he never dreamed he'd end up having a baby with Kirsty. This is going to throw his life into chaos - again. Who knows what will happen when Tanya, Lauren and Abi find out?"

Um, so this is all pretty gripping stuff. Which one will YOU be glued to?
