Neighbours fans will be on Christmas rations as the Ramsay Street gang take a break in the schedules from Christmas Eve through to Monday 4th January 2021.
Over the festive fortnight, the Aussie soap is on for just three days before a short hiatus. This unfortunately means UK audiences fall even further behind Australian pace, following the reduced transmission pattern during spring 2020 lockdown after Neighbours halted production when the pandemic first hit. On the plus side, UK fans get to experience two Christmases, when Australia’s Yuletide instalments air over here in late January 2021!
