Schedule shake-up for 'Hollyoaks Later' week

Hollyoaks logo
Hollyoaks' premiere airings will shift to Channel 4 on a temporary basis for the duration of Hollyoaks Later.

As already noticed by fans on our forum, E4's first look 7pm screenings have disappeared from the schedules from Friday, October 22 - ahead of Later's return on Monday, October 25.

The decision has been made because - for the first time ever - the storylines of Hollyoaks and Hollyoaks Later are seamlessly interweaved this year, meaning that all fans need to be watching at the same pace for the best viewing experience.

Although the 7pm screenings will be gone for the duration of Hollyoaks Later, an 8.30pm repeat airing of Hollyoaks will be added to E4 - meaning that fans can catch up with all the latest action before Later airs at 9pm each night.

Once Later concludes on Friday, October 29, E4's first look screening will return - airing in a 10pm slot for one night only, before being placed back in its usual slot in the following week.

Confused? Here's all the details in an easier-to-read format:

6.30pm (Channel 4) - Hollyoaks (30 mins)
7.00pm (E4) - Hollyoaks (30 mins)
