I think they finally twigged it was a spent force :P

Not according to the story I read. Apparently they were outbid by a

"Neighbours" was a spent force from its very first episode - even

probably just as bad. At least I've managed to stay clear of "East
Enders", although we went through a "High Road" phase for a while, to
my shame.

Perhaps the worst thing about "Neighbours" is that it was Kiley
Minogue's launching pad. And that Australian bloke in "House".
