After 37 years Neighbours is finally coming to an end.
The Australian show made its debut in 1985 and took off in the UK as well as Australia – it's since become one of the country's most beloved soaps.
The show was responsible for launching the careers of some of the world's biggest celebrities including Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan.
But unfortunately all good things must come to an end and Channel 5 decided to drop the soap from its schedule to focus on increasing investment in original UK drama.
As the grand finale of the long-running soap approaches, here's everything you need to know about the last episode of Neighbours.
When is the final episode of Neighbours?
The final episode of Neighbours has already been completed after being filmed earlier this year.
The show's final episode was originally set to air on August 1, but now it's been brought forward.
Channel 5 will now air the grand finale at 9pm on Friday July 29 in the UK.
Earlier in the day, there will be two more episodes of Neighbours airing too.
The first episode will air at 1:45pm and the second will air at 6pm.
The final episode will be broadcast as an hour-long double episode special.
In Australia, the final episodes will air in a 90-minute slot on July 28 at 7:30pm on Channel 10.
What happens in the final episode of Neighbours?
Channel 5 has remained tight-lipped about exactly what's set to happen in the final episode, but bosses have revealed that it will be "gripping and emotional".
In a statement about the upcoming final episode, they teased: “In what is set to be a gripping and emotional finale, fan favourites from the past will be returning to Ramsay Street to celebrate with our Erinsborough locals, in a send-off that will have something for everyone, spanning all generations and decades from the opening scene in 1985, to the final episode in 2022.
“Further announcements will be made in the coming weeks about additional surprises to send off the iconic soap in style.”
It's since been revealed that Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are among the fan favourites to be making an iconic return for the final episode.
Guy Pearce has also announced that he will make a comeback too.
