Why is Neighbours not on today and when will it be back?


Neighbours has gone on its annual Christmas break...

Neighbours fans might be wondering where their daily dose of Australian sunshine has gone, but sadly the soap won't be on until the New Year.

As with Home and Away, Neighbours is taking a break over the festive season to make sure that we don't catch up with Australian viewers.

But, don't panic, because neighbours won't be off air for as long as Home and Away - and the soap will be back on our screens on Monday 4th January.

Ending 2020 with a bang 

Today's episode, the last for 2020, saw a heartbroken Kyle planning a trip to Germany to see his beloved pet dog, Bossy, who doesn't have long left to live.

Meanwhile, newcomer Jay has got himself into a fine mess by befriending the wrong crowd, and the end result of that friendship is a trashed Harolds.

There is also a love triangle drama for Bea, Levi and Nathan.
