The Bold and the Beautiful has been a mainstay on daytime television for more than 25 years. It has won Emmy awards, legions of adoring fans and this year it is also nominated for a GLAAD Outstanding Daily Drama award.

 
In the below videos Xtra writer Ted Flett goes behind the scenes at the B&B studios in Hollywood.
 
In the first video, Flett gets full access to the closets of The Bold and the Beautiful. Prada, Jimmy Choo and Gucci; they are all here.
 
In the second video in the series things get a bit more serious as Flett sits down with the hunky Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) and silver fox John McCook (Eric Forrester) to talk about gays in soap operas. Could a gay male character be in the future at the B&B?  
 
And in the final video we get the real-life inside story behind the famous lesbian coming out storyline, “Karen Spencer comes out/Caroline’s two moms.” Linsey Godfrey (Caroline Spencer) tells all to Flett.
 
Will this storyline be enough to land the B&B a GLAAD award? That will be decided at the GLAAD awards in Los Angeles on April 20.
