The two teams will be quizzed on the biggest events and the funniest moments in the Yorkshire Dales and on the cobbles of Weatherfield from the past 12 months.
Will it be the regulars from Rovers Return or the Woolpack who reign supreme?
On Team Corrie led by Jack P Shepherd are cobbles co-stars Tanisha Gorey and Jane Danson.
Making up Team Emmerdale alongside captain Mark Charnock are the farm’s finest Emile John and Sally Dexter.
The atmosphere is fiercely competitive, but which soap team will be taking home the trophy and the glory this year?
