UK soaps very rarely feature the same characters in two back to back scenes where there has been an apparent lapse of time between them. EastEnders used to do it in the early days. I’ve seen it done a few times on Corrie and Brookside over the years - sometimes as a result of a commercial break cut out of the omnibus, but not always.
We are accustomed to such time lapses on films, dramas and imported soaps, so I’m not sure why it’s deemed such a no-no in our home-grown soaps, which prefer to disguise any time lapse, even by using unnecessary filler scenes. A cross-fade or establishing shot could be just as effective.
