The Big Soap Quiz: Coronation Street vs Emmerdale is back on air in the annual battle of ITV’s biggest serials.

This annual grudge match between Salford’s Corrie and Leeds’ Emmerdale is back for another outing on the channel with Stephen Mulhern hosting proceedings which sees cast of both shows battle it out in the hour long show which tests the actors on their knowledge of Coronation Street and Emmerdale’s biggest, funniest, and most memorable soap moments of 2016.

With returning captains Mark Charnock, who is best known as gurning Marlon Dingle, for team Emmerdale and Jack P. Shepherd, the naughty David Platt, on team Coronation Street, ITV Studios bosses say viewers can expect a fiercely competitive match.
