What was the first big 'event episode' of a soap that you can remember watching?

I think mine is the Emmerdale plane crash.

The Ken, Deirdre and Mike Baldwin triangle in the early 80s.

Gail Platt’s mum being a ghost or something like that.

Actually it might be something off Neighbours. Julie Martin falling off a tower or something.

I watched Neighbours as my first soap so when Brad got shot maybe? Bouncers dream? Anything from back then. Then Brookside came next so the body or the trip to Thailand, but I tell you what stuck with more than anything…

Sonia going into labour in Eastenders. I was legitimately terrified.

My mate still sells deirdre T-shirt’s i think

Neighbours for me; either when Kylie & Jason got married or when Lucy Robinson got a brain tumour, whichever came first

The actor that played Samir Rachid was a teacher at my old high school. His acting was comical at best but he seemed an ok bloke.
