    I imagine most of you in the UK will already know what is happening with the UK soaps (& the Aussie soaps), but I found this article for those interested:

    When are all your favourite soaps airing?
    Most soaps have had to make some major changes after the coronavirus pandemic gripped the UK

    As you may have noticed, there’s a global pandemic on right now and that has meant some changes being made to soaps, both here and overseas.

    Many, if not most, have now shut-down filming due to concerns over the virus and as a result, what we see on the screen will be affected – largely in terms of how many episodes we’ll get to see each week for the foreseeable future.

    There’s also the fact that timelines will be off for a while, Easter, for example, will take place later due to the schedules being out of whack.

    We take a look at the main ones watched here in the UK and give you a handy guide to what changes have been made to them...………………….

    Digital Spy article:

    Neighbours and Home and Away cut to two episodes per week on Channel 5
    The soaps have been cut down due to coronavirus.

    Neighbours and Home and Away are both set to cut back their number of weekly episodes on Channel 5 due to the coronavirus.

    The broadcaster revealed that episodes will now only air twice a week from next week – on Mondays and Fridays – instead of the usual five.

    "As a result of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to reduce the number of episodes for Neighbours and Home and Away from five to two per week for both soaps, so that our viewers can continue to enjoy them for as long as possible," the broadcaster said.

    "Both programmes will air on Monday and Fridays, effective from Monday 30th March."

    Neighbours recently halted filming in Australia due to the pandemic, though resumed production earlier this week "with very strict protocols in place".

    However, Home and Away has been temporarily taken off air by Channel 7 in Australia, which itself followed a pause in production.

    "We will be back," the show said on Instagram. "We are in this together and we will get through this together. Stay safe and healthy. Love from all at Home and Away."

    The show previously said that halting production was due to "increasing logistical hurdles related to the COVID-19 situation".

    Neighbours currently airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia). Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK).

    Thanked: 4846 article. Home And Away now has an official return date in Australia of Monday April 13th. The episodes mentioned in the (Aust) spoilers for March 23rd - 26th, which haven't gone to air as yet, will no doubt now be shown in that week ie April 13th - 16th. So I imagine that means we won't be seeing any new spoilers posted ie for April 20th - 23rd, until then (assuming that it does return on April 13th as planned!). I hope that is not too confusing.

    Home And Away has an official return date after being replaced with COVID-19 coverage
    Happy news alert! We're heading back to the Bay.

    Good news is what we need right now, and thankfully Home And Away has delivered.

    After the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic saw the show pulled from Channel Seven so it could use the peak time slot to cover the outbreak, it has today announced it will be returning – and soon.

    Star of the soap Lynne McGranger, who plays Irene, took to Instagram to confirm the return date.

    "Hope you're keeping well and busy and staying at home and staying safe. I just wanted to let you know, I have it on good authority that Home and Away will be back on air on Monday, April 13th. I'm excited, I hope you are too," Lynne said in the Instagram video, which was posted on Home and Away's official account.

    "Home and Away returns to your screens on Monday, 13th April," the accompanying post explained.

    It will resume its usual scheduling running Monday to Thursday nights on Seven.

    The program was originally pulled, upsetting fans, to be replaced by special coverage of the coronavirus pandemic.

    "Home And Away will be off air from tonight while 7NEWS keeps the nation informed with The Latest, nightly at 7pm," a statement on their Instagram page read.

    Production of the show was also stopped, and remains so until it is deemed safe to do so amid the pandemic.

    The spokesperson confirmed that no cast or crew had tested positive to COVID-19, however the decision was made as "logistical hurdles" increased.

    Just days before, the cast shared photos rehearsing via video call, practicing self-isolation and social distancing.

    Emily Symons, who plays Marilyn on the show, shared a screen grab of a seven-way video call with some of her crew and cast members, including Lukas Radovich, Georgie Parker and Cameron Daddo.

    While Penny McNamee, who plays Tori shared a photo of herself on a video call with fellow cast Sam Frost, Lynne McGranger, Ada Nicodemou and James Stewart.

    With production remaining at a standstill fans have speculated how far in advance the show is filmed, and just how many episodes are in reserve before an issue would arise.

    Online speculation suggests six months, while other devout Home and Away fans believe it is just 15 weeks.

    Now To Love have reached out Channel Seven for comment but are yet to receive a response.
