Put the brakes on scoffing those Easter eggs for a few minutes because some very important British Soap Awards news has been *kind of* announced.

The official Twitter account for British Soap Awards has just hinted that voting will open next week.

Cryptically tweeted today (April 14) was the line: "Votes at the ready? #108thDay #SoapAwards2017."

Well, if we've done the maths correctly, the 108th day of the year falls on Tuesday, April 18 – so we won't have long to wait to see if the longlist voting will open then.

Usually a few weeks after that, the shortlist voting will open with public voted categories as well as panel-judged ones, eventually crowning the winners in a big glitzy ceremony.

There's no official date for when the biggest night of the year in soaps will actually be happening, but this year's one looks like it will be the biggest one yet.

The 2017 British Soap Awards will be broadcast live for the first time EVER.

Previous years have seen the ceremony pre-recorded, leading to results coming out before it's even been aired on ITV, often up to three or four days in advance.

The awards will once again be hosted by This Morning's Phillip Schofield – and with some of the biggest ever storylines have gone down recently, we can't call which soap will scoop the Best Soap award.
