Kylie Minogue admits it was ‘lovely and emotional’ returning to Neighbours to film final scenes for the cancelled Aussie soap


Kylie Minogue is returning to the iconic Australian soap opera Neighbours to film the show’s final scenes.

On Monday, the singer, 53, admitted that returning to Ramsay Street was ‘lovely but also emotional.’

‘It was lovely and touching.’ ‘It was quite something driving into Ramsay Street,’ she told Today Extra.

‘First and foremost, where has all that time gone? Second, everything appears to be same. Finally, Scott, Charlene, Jane, and Harold all came flooding back to me.’


‘There was a lot of talking about memories and going back in time,’ she continued.

Kylie’s portrayal of feisty mechanic Charlene Robinson propelled her to international fame.

She left Neighbours in June 1988, having won four Logie Awards in a single year and being the youngest person ever to win a Gold Logie.

She went on to have a phenomenally successful music career, selling over 80 million albums around the world.


In March, Neighbours tweeted that production on the long-running soap would come to an end.

‘After nearly 37 years and nearly 9,000 episodes broadcast, we regret to inform you that Neighbours will be ending production in June,’ the show wrote.

‘Following the loss of our key UK broadcast partner [Channel 5], and despite an extensive search for alternative funding, we have no choice but to put the show on hold.’

‘We know this is a huge disappointment to our amazing, loyal fans, as it is to all of us on the team. We appreciate all of your messages and support, and we pledge to end the programme on a positive note. We’ll be commemorating Neighbours from now on.’


In a statement to Australian media in March, Network 10 said that ending the series was a “tough decision.”

The soap’s production firm, Fremantle, said it had been unable to find ‘alternative finance’ for the show.
