During the past 12 months when lockdowns were happening and life was full of ups and downs, one thing was very consistent for us at Beebs–we'd all been watching episodes of Eastenders. The show is a sanctuary from the chaos and confusion of the outside world. And, at the end of the day, it's simply a perfect daytime television series.

2. Emmerdale on ITV Hub

Over its 45-year lifespan, Emmerdale has earned various awards and nominations over the years. The show is in a very good run in 2021 with fans calling it one of the strongest in the programme's nearly 50 year history. It only further cements Emmerdale's status as a quality soap capable of capturing the complicated truths and circumstances of Britain. While it doesn’t achieve the same critical acclaim as its contemporaries, the show consistently boasting fantastic writing and top-tier acting.

3. Coronation Street on ITV Hub

Being able to immerse oneself in Corrie's cobbled, terraced street is one of the great benefits of subscribing to Beebs.
