Following the Neighbours finale last week, Kylie Minogue has released a statement.
After reprising her role as Charlene in the vintage Australian soap opera, the 54-year-old pop diva shared an emotional confession on Instagram.
In several of the pictures, Kylie is posing with her co-star and on-screen love interest Jason Donovan, who plays Scott Robinson, from her time at Ramsay Street.
There were tears, of course! She wrote in the caption of her image, “Congratulations to the @neighbours team for the heartwarming and celebratory finale. “You’ll always be in my heart!”
It happens after rumours about the singer of the hit song “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” being on the programme were eventually disproved.
Fans voiced dissatisfaction with the lack of dialogue between Kylie and Jason.
The two taped their special appearance before executive producer of Neighbours Jason Herbison had even finished writing the final episode, so what they said had to fit in with the rest of the plot, he claimed to TV Tonight.
Herbison told TV Tonight, “Our conversations with Jason and Kylie were always about making a tiny appearance.”
They did not want to take centre stage in the finale or overwhelm the present cast. Additionally, we shot their scenes before I had finished writing the episode, so anything we captured had to work with that.
After Kylie received criticism on social media, he continued to stand up for her, saying: “I hate to see Kylie copping any criticism – she was nothing short of amazing on the day.”
The much-anticipated appearance of Charlene and Scott Robinson, favourite characters of Kylie and Jason, to the garden party was made when they pulled up on Ramsay Street in their recognisable green Mini before shocking their friends.
During the conclusion, Scott exclaimed “Wow wow wow” as they exited the Mini.
“This is absurd.” He said, “We made it, eh?” Charlene, played by Kylie, then spoke the phrase “Home sweet home.”
For the first time since saying goodbye to the neighbourhood and moving to Brisbane following their nuptials more than 30 years ago, the couple visited Erinsborough.
Along with Holly Valance (Flick Scully), Natalie Imbruglia (Beth Brennan), Guy Pearce (Mike Young), and Ian Smith (Harold Bishop), who all repeated their roles on the serial series, there were also epic returns by Kylie and Jason, who made their farewell appearances on the show.
