Inside Soap is a weekly UK magazine, released every Tuesday. It covers current and future storylines in soap operas shown in the United Kingdom.

History and profile

When Inside Soap was first published in October 1992, it was a monthly magazine. It went on to be published fortnightly in the mid 1990s, before going weekly early in September 2003. As of 2009, the editor is Steven Murphy.

Inside Soap traditionally provides interviews from actors who play characters in the soap operas and outlines current storylines; occasionally past storylines are included in featurettes.

As of 2009, soaps included in its content are EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks, Neighbours and Home and Away. Other soaps covered include River City, Fair City and The Archers. Former soaps covered include Brookside, Family Affairs and Crossroads. Readers are invited to email their questions to soap stars and entries are published in interview format. Soap stars' personal lives are also covered, including tips on fashion and where to purchase clothes worn by the stars. A weekly TV guide is also provided.

Each year the Inside Soap Awards ceremony is held, where awards are given to the 'Best Actor', 'Best Actress' and 'Best Soap', among others, voted for by readers.
