The beleaguered soap opera faced an uncertain future following its cancellation by original network Channel 5, where it has spent the last 14 of its 37-years on British TV.

And Fremantle Media, the production company responsible for its development confirmed it would be taken off-air after an ‘extensive search for alternative funding’ was unsuccessful.

But in the 80s the show was unstoppable with Kylie and Jason’s onscreen wedding as Scott and Charlene watched by two million Australians on July 1, 1987.
