The 2022 The Big Soap Quiz airs on TV on Friday, 9 December at 9:15PM.
The one-hour show will air at 9PM on ITV1 as well as online via the ITV Hub.
As always, the two sides 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.
On Team Corrie led by Jack P Shepherd are Sally Dynevor (who plays Sally Metcalfe) and Ryan Russell (who plays Michael Bailey).
Meanwhile making up Team Emmerdale alongside captain Mark Charnock are the farm’s finest Nicola Wheeler (who plays Nicola King) and Jurell Carter (who plays Nate Robinson).
A teaser shares: “Both teams play rounds that test their knowledge of the past Year In Soap; their colleagues social media postings in Soapstars Off Set; and legendary double acts from the Dales and Weatherfield.
“There are also surprises in store as Ken Barlow and Eric Pollard go missing in a game called National Treasure Hunt, and the teams are tasked with identifying their former co-stars in mysterious game Soapstars In The Shadows!
“It’s 4-all in the ongoing series, but which soap will lift the trophy this year?”
The Big Quiz first made its debut on TV in 2011 with a competition between Corrie and Emmerdale. Other specials followed with the casts of different TV shows including TOWIE and Benidorm.
In 2016 Corrie and Emmerdale returned for a rematch and have competed against each other every December since.
Last year’s Corrie team featured Tanisha Gorey and Jane Danson while the Emmerdale team was made up of Emile John and Sally Dexter.
