Home and Away summer break

Summer's here, the sun's shining (well, sometimes) and, as some lucky folk are preparing to go off on their holidays, so is one of our favourite soaps.

That's right: as a result of the soap's annual production break, Home and Away is set to take a five-week hiatus from Channel 5 after the episodes on Friday 29 July. It will return on Monday 5 September at the usual times of 1.15pm and 6pm (with a first-look showing on 5* at 6.30pm).

If the thought of five weeks without Home and Away is too much to bear, then don't worry: as well as bringing you all the latest soap news and offering you the chance to catch up online, with 30 days' worth of full episodes available to watch on Demand 5, we've got some extra treats in store.

Do you remember Home and Away: Bay Reporter winner Joanna Adeyinka-Burford? Well, fresh from her travels Down Under, she's returned home laden with juicy Summer Bay gossip, and each week we'll be sharing with you exclusive video diaries recorded during her time on set.

From a cheeky sneak peek inside the green room to a chat with Zac Drayson (aka Will Smith), stay tuned for your chance to go behind the scenes on Australia's sexiest soap.
