Gone: Hollyoaks

Long-running Brit soap is now without an Australian home, after being dropped by UKTV.

UKTV has pulled British soap Hollyoaks from its scheduling.

The long-running soap has been on the channel since 2013.

A UKTV spokesperson told TV Tonight, “We’ve decided to remove Hollyoaks from our programming line-up and have stopped airing the show as of October 12.

“We still have a strong line-up of soaps on the channel, and have been listening to viewer feedback about getting more up-to-date. We’ve recently caught up with both EastEnders and Coronation Street, so that we’re now just one week behind the UK premiere, and will be airing double episodes of Emmerdale from October 16.”

At this stage there is no other Australian outlet for Hollyoaks fans to get their fix, which will make it tough to avoid spoilers.

    1. Good Point Andrew, I can see this played after Neighbours on Eleven. I can see maybe Arena picking it up to put with Shortland St.

      However I prefer Brookside than Hollyoaks anyway.
