Struggling to keep track with the constant stream of soap spoilers? Fear not, as every Monday Digital Spy picks out the biggest and best storylines hitting your screens in the week ahead.
1. EastEnders: Lauren looks set to cheat on Steven (Tuesday at 7.30pm and 9pm on BBC One)
Is Lauren Branning really so bored with Steven Beale that she's prepared to do the dirty on him? It's a real possibility this week as she tries to make contact with the mysterious "Photocopier Guy" she met at Max's work last Friday.
After losing the handsome newcomer's number, Lauren does some digging online to track him down and then suddenly arranges a night out with Whitney to a bar in the city. Is it Photocopier Guy's favourite venue, by any chance?
One thing's for sure – Whitney is very disapproving over the whole situation, despite all that mooning she's done over married man Mick recently. One rule for one...
2. Neighbours: Fake Dee finally gets caught out (Wednesday at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5)
Neighbours airs its specially-recorded London-based scenes this week and the storyline is a cracker, with Toadie arriving in the capital to track down Fake Dee and Willow following their sudden disappearing act.
An official trailer currently airing in Australia has already revealed that Toadie finds Fake Dee's passport when they come face-to-face again, finally discovering that she's an evil impostor called Andrea Somers. But how will he react and how will Andrea explain herself? And even more importantly, just how far have things gone between Toadie and Andrea before his disturbing discovery?
3. Coronation Street: Peter is betrayed badly by Ken (Friday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV)
Ken has never had much faith in his troublesome son (often with good reason!) and that's more obvious than ever in very some tense scenes over the next few days. When Peter's stalker Chloe pays a visit to the Street, she starts spreading the word that he's back on the booze and has been having a secret affair with her. After hearing what she has to say, Ken falls for all her lies hook, line and sinker. So much for family loyalty!
Not bothering to at least check with Peter first, interfering Ken goes straight to Toyah and warns that his son is already back to his old tricks. Could Chloe's false claims cause Peter to lose everything?
4. Emmerdale: Emma and Faith become enemies (Thursday at 7pm and 8pm on ITV)
When mischievous Faith Dingle starts telling anyone who'll listen that she can communicate with spirits, the bizarre revelation doesn't go down too well with local killer Emma Barton, who's still wrestling with her guilt over James's death.
With Emmerdale running the risk of turning into a supernatural soap for the week, Emma fears that Faith could somehow make contact with James's angry spirit and expose her deadly secret.
When Faith goes a step further by hosting a psychic night at The Woolpack, things get even worse when she really does seem to be channelling James, causing Emma to lose it in front of everyone. Could this new pressure on Emma lead to her slipping up and revealing her dark secret?
5. Hollyoaks: Leela's stalker ordeal intensifies (Thursday and Friday at 6.30pm on Channel 4)
Leela's stalker is about to get even nastier and she's disturbed to receive a picture of herself through the post, with the word "SLUT" written across it. (Silas would be proud!) The disturbing developments also coincide with a riot at Killer Cameron's prison, which leave the police fearing that he's back on the streets again.
DS Armstrong's hot theory is that Cameron has teamed up with his daughter Peri to terrify Leela, just before things get even scarier when all of the lights go out at the Lomax house. Uh-oh – as darkness falls, will the stalker's identity finally be revealed?
6. EastEnders: Johnny and Ben become the subject of gossip (Tuesday at 7.30pm on BBC One)
Is there chemistry between Walford's Johnny Carter and Ben Mitchell? Fans certainly think they've spotted it in the past and now it seems that Abi Branning agrees, as she tries to play matchmaker between the pair during Ben's 21st birthday party.
Johnny and Ben are both adamant that there's absolutely nothing between them, but this might not necessarily be the last of it – it is Soapland, after all! Will they act on any feelings, or is Abi really onto a loser with this one?
7. Coronation Street: Ken's rant about Deirdre upsets Tracy (Monday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV)
It's not just Peter that Ken is upsetting this week, as he also manages to land himself in Tracy's bad books. Understandably, she isn't too happy to hear Ken bad-mouthing her beloved mum Deirdre, less than two years after she sadly passed away.
Ken makes his harsh comments in a very frank conversation with Sinead Tinker, urging her to set Daniel free so that he doesn't end up wasting his life, just like he did with Deirdre for so many years. Oh Ken, how could you?
8. Emmerdale: Ashley goes missing (Wednesday at 6.45pm on ITV)
When Ashley returns to the village for a visit, his loved ones have no idea that there'll be very worrying consequences. Ashley has a ball when he's smuggled back home to cheer up Sandy on his birthday, even slipping into his old cassock and enjoying quality time with his family just like old times.
When Ashley is returned to the care home later that day, he manages to slip out unnoticed as he's still wearing his cassock and is mistaken for a visiting vicar. All on his own in a deserted street, it's not long before Ashley becomes disorientated. Will he be brought back safely, or could there be tragic consequences?
9. Hollyoaks: Marnie returns with revenge in mind (Thursday at 6.30pm on Channel 4)
Marnie is nice as pie to her cheating partner Mac when she returns to the village, which is awfully strange given that she knows he's responsible for their son's untimely death!
Fortunately for our viewing pleasure, Marnie hasn't suffered from a classic soapy case of amnesia – she's simply biding her time before exacting that horrible revenge she promised before she got carted off in a private ambulance last month. Could the big re-launch day at The Dog be Marnie's perfect chance to get even?
10. Home and Away: Billie's secrets are finally exposed to everyone (Wednesday at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5)
Billie has to share some painful secrets this week as evil Mick kidnaps baby Luc from the hospital after days of lurking in the shadows. When the worrying incident gets reported to the police, many of Billie and VJ's closest loved ones are confused about why Mick would have any interest in the newborn baby.
Feeling backed into a corner, Billie finally decides to tell everyone how Mick raped her and how he's the real father of Luc. Leah can't believe that VJ also kept the truth from her for so long, but can the family pull together to ensure that Luc is returned safely?
