Kylie Minogue Confirms She’s Going Back To Ramsay St For The Neighbours Finale

Kylie Minogue Confirms She’s Going Back To Ramsay St For The Neighbours Finale

This news from the Aussie Queen of Pop has our heads 'Spinning Around' - and we can't wait to see what Scott and Charlene are up to now.

Australia's Queen of Pop has dropped a major bombshell that she's returning to Ramsay Street for the final episode of long-time running soap Neighbours.

It won't just be Kylie though. She'll be joined by her on-screen lover, played by Jason Donovan, to give fans a glimpse into the modern-day lives of Charlene and Scott.

It was love at first sight when a youthful Kylie Minogue first graced Australian television screens on Neighbours back in 1986.

Now, more than three decades on, Scott and Charlene - aka Australia's original power couple - will be returning to the small screen.

Both Minogue and Donovan shared a glimpse of what appeared to be a Neighbours script on their Instagram accounts, sending fans into overdrive as the series finale inches closer.

One user wrote: "Can’t wait to see it. It’s, of course, sad it’s ending but great that it will go out with a bang."

A second added: "They're reuniting for a special! Slay queen."

A third said: "Both characters [are] a huge part of why I loved Neighbours. "[It's] only right you’re both getting your rightful places at the sunset of the show."

TV executive Jason Herbison confirmed the duo would return, adding that leaving Ramsay Street behind without a nod to the show's original power couple 'wouldn't feel right'.

"We are thrilled that Jason and Kylie have come home to play a very special part in our series finale," Herbison told the Guardian.

"It has been an emotional experience for them, for us, and I’m sure it will be for our viewers."

Neighbours first aired in 1985 and Minogue's debut came a year after.

She was originally only contracted to work for one week but plans changed, thankfully, with the modern-day music icon remaining on the soap until 1988.

During her time on the show, her character Charlene met Donovan's Scott and the pair fell in love.

The iconic couple's wedding drew in more than 22 million viewers worldwide, making it one of the most-watched TV moments of the decade.

As well as Minogue and Donovan, Ramsay Street has acted as a launching pad for many Aussie stars including Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce, Liam Hemsworth, Delta Goodrem, and Holly Valance.

In March, Neighbours confirmed its cancellation, writing: "We are so sorry to say that after nearly 37 years and almost 9000 episodes broadcast we have to confirm that Neighbours will cease production in June."

So, after 37 years on air, the final ever episode is set to air in the UK and Australia on August 1, as per Digital Spy.
