Telly regulator, the ITC says there are too many soaps on TV.
Corrie is moving to five nights-a-week, EastEnders is on four times and that's not counting the repeats.
Then there's Hollyoaks, Neighbours, Emmerdale, Brookside, the list goes on and on.
What do you think, is there a soap overload, or can you not get enough of them!
I think there are too many unrealistic soaps on TV. As if that would all happen in one street! It is a load of rubbish I'm sure people have better things to do than watch people live.

Soaps are soooo boring. Why have any soaps on TV at all they are a waste of time.

I think that all the popular soaps should carry on like Corrie, EastEnders and Neighbours, all the rest should go.

In my opinon there are way too many mushy soaps which make you end up crying but I like the soaps with good storylines eg EastEnders and Neighbours. I don't like the boring soaps which make you fall asleep like Brookside.

There are too many, we don't need them all as they are all the same: kiss, slap, argue, make-up, getting pregnant and shouting. Though it may come close to, life is generally not like life in a soap at all!

I think there is too many soaps. Who watches Crossroads, Neighbours, Brookside and Home and Away and doesn't fall asleep after five minutes?

Soaps are cool, there should be more!!! I do agree that it is really all just shouting and arguments and murder and stuff, but they always do cliffhangers so you have to watch the next episode to find out what happens!!

There are way too many soaps on TV, and they all carry out the same storylines! How can anyone keep track without getting confused?

Britain is famous for its soaps. I am a soapaholic, if I miss one I watch a repeat. I love soaps, I know I have to get out more but EastEnders is really good.

Why are people saying that there are too many soaps on TV? I'm glad there are loads of soaps on telly.They are the best programmes.(apart from CBBC!)

Soaps suck. I say get rid of them all.
Tina, 11, Southall
I think that there is way too many soaps on the telly. A few are OK but they all copy each other's storylines and it gets really boring. Most of the time the storylines are unrealistic.

I'm not bothered if they take some soaps off just as long it's not EastEnders or Coronation Street but I don't think they will take them off because they are more popular than the other soaps.

There aren't too many soaps at all, just too many boring story lines!
Fayona, 12, Chester
I don't think there are too many soaps. They are interesting to watch. If they were going to get rid of some they shouldn't take EastEnders or Corrie off our screens.
Laura, 12, Gosport
I think there is far too many soaps on the TV and there should be more programmes like the Simpsons.
Stuart, 12, Glasgow
Don't ever get rid of soaps I would love it if they were on 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
Ali, 13, Stratford
Sometimes I get annoyed when I just want to chill out in front of the TV but all there is is soaps when I want to watch something different.
Chantal, 10, Sevenoaks
I think there are too many soaps on. I think it is a bad influence on children, and I can't watch two at a time.
Sanne, 10, Eversley
I don't think I would say there are too many soaps but I think it's stupid that there are so many with the same story lines.
Helena, 13, Grimsby
No way, bring out more soaps I say. They're the best things on TV, except Newsround :)
