Today's Soap Round-Up: Tuesday 19th April 2011

Round-UpHello and welcome to another TellyMix Soaps Round-Up. Today has been a busy day in the world of soap from announcements to revelations and we've got it all in one bite-sized chunk for you. So, it's time to start with today's UK based Soaps Round-Up!

First up it's the always eventful Eastenders. Actor Nitin Ganatra who plays popular Masood Ahmed has revealed that we are going to see a bit more of Masood's dark side in the coming weeks.  The Walford postie's marriage to Zainab Masood (Nina Wadia) has come under strain as the influence of her ex Yusef Khan (Ace Bhatti) took it's tole.

Speaking to Inside Soap, the actor teased: ''We're shooting scenes at the moment that are really exciting. Masood is becoming darker and more desperate, and we could even see him become a little dangerous with his actions. He'll find himself increasingly isolated from his wife and his family - it's going to be brilliant to watch.''

Over to another drama, more of a drama series than a soap but we love it all the same. BBC's Waterloo Road is set to return for its seventh series on Wednesday, 4th May.

The show set in a school stars big name actors such as Amanda Burton and Robson Green, who is set to play site manager Rob Scotcher in the new series. It may only have finished a few weeks ago but its new 30 episode series is back on screen in May at a new time of 7:30 pm and we will definitely be tuning in.

Over to Manchester-based Coronation Street and Kym Marsh who plays Michelle Connor has confirmed that she will be returning from her maternity leave in September alongside on-screen partner Keith Duffy who plays Ciaran McCarthy.

The duo departed screens in January as Michelle joined Ciaran on a cruise. Writing in her New magazine column, Marsh said: ''I'm due to return to work on Corrie around September and so is Keith Duffy, who plays Ciaran McCarthy. It makes sense for Ciaran and Michelle to return together as viewers like them as a couple.''

So, what do you think of today's stories? Do you like the idea of seeing Masood's dark side? Do you await the return of Waterloo Road with baited breath? Are you happy that Ciaran and Michelle are winging it back to Weatherfield?
