Why this petition matters

Neighbours will be dropped from the UK TV schedule after nearly four decades, with Channel 5 saying it will instead increase investment in original British drama.

In a statement supplied to Sky News, a Channel 5 spokesperson said: "Neighbours will no longer air on Channel 5 beyond this summer.

"It has been a much-loved part of our schedule for more than a decade, and we'd like to thank the cast, Fremantle and all of the production team for their fantastic work on this iconic series.

"We'd also of course like to thank the fans for their loyal support of Neighbours across the years.

"We recognise that there will be disappointment about this decision, however our current focus is on increasing our investment in original UK drama, which has strong appeal for our viewers.

It comes after reports that Channel 5, Fremantle Media, and Australian broadcaster Network 10 had been trying to reach a deal to secure the show's future.

A Network 10 spokesperson said: "As outlined in the email to Neighbours cast and crew, it is our intention to continue our association with Neighbours if another broadcast partner comes forward.

Please save Neighbours!!! It’s been part of our lives in the UK since the beginning. We love Neighbours. It can’t end. 

Hopefully another UK broadcaster comes forward to help with funding so that Neighbours can continue to be filmed going forward. Life just won’t be the same without it.
