    Neighbours is in danger of being axed because talks between producers and Channel 5 have reportedly stalled.

    The popular Australian soap which first aired in the UK in 1986, could be ditched after broadcasters failed to agree new terms.

    It is currently shown on Channel 5 but TV insiders claim talks with makers FremantleMedia to renegotiate a deal have stalled.

    If an agreement can’t be reached then Neighbours could move to another channel or there is a real risk it could disappear from British screens completely.

    I have no idea why it's even still on air. I remember as a teenager being really annoyed at it's popularity and boycotting it because it was all over the place and I wanted Dallas to be all over the place.:lmao:

    It's because of the uk audience.

    Whilst it is an Australian soap, it is in reality made primarily with British money for a British audience.

    very sad for Neighbours fans. This soap is the 5th most watched soap in the UK ahead of Hollyoaks and Home and Away.
