10 Years Ago in the Soaps: Remind yourself of all the soap drama that was happening in EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks 10 years ago this week!

Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner) was heartbroken in EastEnders, Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon) had wedding doubts in Coronation Street, Sam Dingle (James Hooton) was armed and dangerous in Emmerdale and Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox) was a reluctant bride in Hollyoaks - it was all happening 10 Years Ago in the Soaps…

EastEnders - 10 Years Ago in the Soaps

Stacey Branning, EastEnders

Stacey Branning  was desperate for Bradley (Charlie Clements) to forgive her for sleeping with his dad, Max (Jake Wood). She knew Bradley was a big Doctor Who fan and got tickets for a convention in London. There, Stacey poured her heart out and Bradley listened. He told Stacey he would always love her – but he could never trust her again. It was over!

Tanya Branning, EastEnders

Max Branning’s wife Tanya (Jo Joyner) reckoned her divorce should be easy-peasy with the DVD proof of Max cheating with Stacey. Max, though, had no intention of going quietly. And when her solicitor told Tanya the DVD had gone missing, she saw Max looking smug and totally lost it… not a good move!

Coronation Street - 10 Years Ago in the Soaps

Maria Connor, Liam Connor, Coronation Street

Maria Connor  might have been a bit of an airhead but she could tell there was something going on between Carla (Alison King) and her bridegroom Liam Connor (Rob James-Collier). Maria refused to get out of the wedding car until Liam convinced her that she, not Carla, was the woman he loved. The wedding went ahead - but it didn’t stop Liam cheating with Carla, did it?!

Michelle Connor, Alex Neeson, Coronation Street

Michelle Connor's new-found son, Alex Neeson, turned up at The Rovers, accompanied by a police officer, who revealed Alex had been caught shoplifting food and claimed that his mum – Michelle (Kym Marsh)– had thrown him out! Michelle had no option but to let him stay at the pub, causing all sorts of problems with Ryan, the lad she had always thought was her son…

Emmerdale - 10 Years Ago in the Soaps

Sam Dingle, Marlon Dingle, Emmerdale

Sam Dingle was on the run with his son Samson after robbing the Emmerdale factory. But when Samson was taken poorly, Sam called Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) for help and Marlon told his then wife Donna (Verity Rushworth) who, of course, was a policewoman! Next thing Sam was pointing a gun at the pair of them, but eventually he was talked into giving himself up…

Chas Dingle, Carl King, Emmerdale

Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) was a dangerous woman to mess with – as Carl King (Tom Lister) discovered after he cheated on her with Lexi Nicolls (Sally Oliver). Chas found out – of course she did – and lamped Carl one in The Woolpack. His brothers, Matthew and Jimmy King thought it was hilarious.

Hollyoaks - 10 Years Ago in the Soaps

Nancy Hayton, Hollyoaks

Nancy Hayton (Jessaica Fox) had serious doubts about marrying Jake Dean (Kevin Sacre) but there was no way he was letting her back out. And she found to her cost just how far Jake would go to get his own way when he tried to rape her on their wedding night. She was only saved by Steph Dean turning up…

Katy Fox

Katy Fox (Hannah Tointon) agreed to take part in the village charity Tie-Me-Up fund-raising challenge with Zak Ramsey (Kent Riley) as her very willing partner. But Katy would rather have been tied to hunky Justin Burton and with her mind focused on him, they didn’t make the best team. Poor Zak was very disappointed, in more ways than one!
