The world's longest surviving soap has been screened for the last time.
Having been on air in the US for more than 70 years, health and safety officials in the US have ordered NBC to scrap the soap in case the film crew slipped on it.
Despite attempts by the station to explain that the longest surviving soap was in fact Guiding Light, first aired on NBC before moving to television in the 1950s, the decision is irreversible.
A health and safety official explained, "It is simply too dangerous to leave giant bars of soap lying around no matter how many people want to look at it.
"These people that made the soap are all in a lather about it, but we have other considerations.
"Has the soap been allergy tested for example."
Last night, Guiding Light actress Kim Zimmer said, "At least it was clean."
