Home and Away spoilers follow.

It has been announced that Home and Away will be changing timeslots on Channel 5 for the rest of the year.

The show will be airing at the slightly earlier time of 1pm on weekdays from Monday, October 30 until the series ends on Friday, November 17. This change is a result of Channel 5 beginning its festive coverage, with Christmas films scheduled to air from 1.30pm on weekdays.

Home and Away posted a PSA video on X — formerly Twitter — to announce the new timeslot, with Summer Bay stalwart Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) detailing the news. "G'day Home and Away fans," he began.

"Just so you don't miss any of the Summer Bay drama, we wanted to let you know that from October 30, Home and Away will be moving to the earlier time of 1pm on Channel 5, as the build up to Christmas begins. Oh, and don't forget there's also Home and Away first-look at 6.30pm over on 5STAR or watch whenever you like on My5. I'll see you there."

Home and Away will return to its usual Channel 5 timeslot of 1.45pm on weekdays when the new series launches in the new year.

It's been heating up in the Bay recently, with DS Madden's police corruption storyline set to come to a head. After Irene and Harper's arrests for harbouring fugitive Dana, UK viewers will soon see DS Madden order Dana's murder.

In dramatic scenes set to air in the UK on Channel 5 next week, the corrupt detective plots to get rid of Dana for good, after framing her for a drugs charge. When she finally hands herself in, Madden threatens to arrest her sister Harper for assisting an offender.

Harper, Irene Roberts and Cash Newman are then left confused when Madden and Dana are nowhere to be found. Will they figure out where Dana is in time?

Home and Away will air weekdays at 1pm on Channel 5 until Friday, November 17 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

Selected classic episodes are available via Prime Video in the UK.
