All About Soap is a fortnightly UK magazine, released on Tuesday. Storylines of the shows it covers are from soap operas shown in the United Kingdom and from Australia.

Popular soaps featured are EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks, Neighbours and Home and Away.

The magazine launched in 1999 as a sister magazine to Inside Soap and as a rival to Soaplife which had taken off just months earlier, the same year.

Out of the three leading soap magazines, it is the only one to have featured a celebrity column written by a soap star. Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter (who plays Chas Dingle), Verity Rushworth (Donna Windsor) and Matthew Bose (Paul Lambert) have all written the celebrity column.

The magazine also launched the All About Soap Bubble Awards.

Its circulation is currently at 113,436, making it the second best-selling soap magazine in the country, and the highest selling fortnightly ahead of Soaplife.
