Home and Away will leave UK screens later this month and won't return until early 2019, it has been confirmed.

The Aussie soap will take its traditional Christmas break from Friday, November 23 in order to prioritise seasonal programming, as well as to keep pace with the show's airing in Australia.

There will also be no 5STAR first look episode on that night, so will thus finish with 5STAR's pace on the Thursday night (November 22).

However, if you'll be missing your soap fix from Down Under, then Neighbours still airs all year round and will still be on TV over Christmas.

And in other Home and Away news, if you need a quick catch up, Colby Thorne and Chelsea Campbell are set to get engaged again this week, especially after she learns the full truth about Colby's past.

While under pressure of keeping secrets like these, Colby decides to propose with their old engagement ring and urges her to make a final decision.

Home and Away has also unveiled a number of new spoiler pictures as Robbo's baby plans have an impact on Jasmine.

Home and Away airs on Channel 5.
