For the first time ever, season four of Ackley Bridge is airing every weeknight at the earlier time of 6pm, just before Hollyoaks.

Speaking about the change of schedule, Caroline Hollick, Head of Channel 4 Drama, said: "We've put younger viewers squarely at the heart of our new strategy, making each episode a snappy 30 minutes and moving the time slot to the brand-new time of 6pm.

"Sandwiched between The Simpsons and Hollyoaks, Channel 4 will truly own teatime!"
