The way soap fans catch up on Neighbours and Home and Away is about to change, as Channel 5 officially confirms when its new evening schedule is set to take effect.

Last month, both Neighbours and Home and Away confirmed that their episode time-slots would be changed in light of Channel 5's decision to shake up its news output.

After Ofcom granted the channel permission to expand its 5pm news coverage, the Aussie soaps will now air at new times – and in the case of Home and Away, on a new channel.

Neighbours' evening episode will be pushed back half an hour, airing at 6pm on Channel 5, while Home and Away's 6pm episode will instead air on 5STAR.
