EMMERDALE fans fear the soap will be AXED as it’s ‘left in the dust’ by Coronation Street and EastEnders.
Competition between the three biggest soaps has always been tight, with the trio battling it out for ratings and awards.
This year, EastEnders swept the board at the Inside Soap Awards, won Best Serial Drama at the National Television Awards and Best British Soap at The British Soap Awards.
The BBC soap is also getting fans excited about who dies on Christmas Day after airing its first ever flash forward scene earlier this year.
But not to be outdone, both ITV soaps have big stunts planned for next week's Super Soap Week.
While Coronation Street will finally have Stephen Reid's reign of terror come to a dramatic end, Emmerdale will see Charity Dingle and Chloe Harris's lives hanging in the balance after a car accident leaves their vehicle hanging perilously on the edge of a cliff.

Another added: "Even though #emmerdale is my true home, #eastenders has been fantastic again they deserve all the awards this year sorry emmerdale."
A third tweeted recently: "@emmerdale #EDHQ seriously need to do a Q&A with the viewers. It is getting so bad now. You really have to listen. It’s getting beyond a joke.
