The popular Aussie soap has announced it's taking a six-week break from UK screens this Christmas.

The show will come off air at the end of November, and fans won't get their next fix until January.

From November 22 to January 6, Home And Away fans will have to miss out on the drama from Summer Bay.

Luckily, fans of soaps from Down Under will still be able to watch Neighbours which airs all-year-round.

Home and Away usually airs 230 episodes a year, five times a week, which might explain why the cast and crew deserve a six-week break.

Upcoming storylines include Teresa taking matters into her own hands and killing Bella's attacker Tommy - leaving Irene in a state of shock.

Another big storyline is Olivia Deeble's exit as Raffy Morrison.

The actress confirmed she was quitting the show after three years, and fans will no doubt be sad to say goodbye to the fan favourite.

Raffy recently received some important news about her future, as her loved ones continue to search for a new medicinal marijuana trial she can join to combat her epilepsy.

When her final scenes aired in Australia last month, Olivia told fans: "After three years and almost 1,000 episodes I completed my journey in the Bay.

"It was the most amazing experience of my life, I will be eternally grateful for all of my cast mates and crew. Thank you to all of you for the constant support and love."
