Channel 5 boss reveals why Home and Away will never be axed as Neighbours ends


Following the cancellation of Neighbours, Channel 5 chief Ben Frow has spoken on the future of Home and Away.

Fans are aware that Neighbours will finish at the end of the month after the UK broadcaster made the contentious decision to remove it off their lineup.

However, Channel 5 will continue to air Home and Away. When asked if the Summer Bay serial will suffer the same fate as Neighbours, TV executive Frow responded, “No. However, I think it will be intriguing to observe how we use it as we advance.

There might be another location for it in the spectrum of values for five.


It is a life-of-series contract, therefore it won’t end until the creators decide to discontinue it.

While Neighbours was mostly funded by the UK broadcaster, Frow acknowledged that it was possible to continue producing the show for a UK audience.

He continued, calling the choice to stop the well-liked serial a “business,” and claimed that he chose to spend the money on “UK shows,” which he claims is a better use of the capital.

He told Radio Times, “Or I could spend the money on other things, which is what I opted to do.” “I can spend the Neighbours money better on UK shows,” you say.


The final episode of Neighbours will run on July 29 at 9 p.m.

Many well-known actors are expected to make a comeback, including Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue, who will reprise their legendary roles as Scott and Charlene Robinson.
