Home and Away to film in the UK this autumn

For the first time in 12 years, Home and Away is to film in scenes in London this autumn, as part of a dramatic storyline which will air on Channel 5 next year.

Although details of the plot and the characters involved are still under wraps, it has been revealed that a number of main characters will travel to London in a desperate fight to hang on to what is most important in life – love and family.

“I can promise fans this is going to be one not to miss,” says Greg Barnett, Commissioning Editor at Channel 5. “It’s great to have the show filming these very special episodes in the UK. As a huge fan of Home and Away myself, I’m very, very excited!”

The first time the long-running Australian soap filmed in the UK, Summer Bay High headmaster Donald Fisher was reunited with long lost love Marilyn, while Irene’s teenager lodger Nick got lost in London and had to ask for directions from top girl group of the time… Atomic Kitten!
