The upcoming Neighbours Farewell Tour will include April Rose Pengilly, as Digital Spy can exclusively reveal.
After the show’s final episode airs on our televisions the following week, some of the cast will be travelling the country in the spring of 2019 to reflect on the show’s 37 years on the air.
One of them is April, who has been portraying Chloe Brennan since 2018 and has taken the lead in several significant storylines during her tenure.
The actress exclaimed, “I am so thrilled to be a part of the Neighbours UK tour!” “We have the most amazing fans, and I can’t wait to meet them all in person,” the band member said.
With more cast members to be revealed, April joins Alan Fletcher and Jackie Woodburne, who portray the famous Ramsay Street couple Karl and Susan Kennedy.
Next March, the tour is scheduled to begin in Belfast and stop in places like Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Cardiff before coming to an end in London.
Prior to COVID-19, the soap opera was scheduled to perform an unique one-off Live In Conversation show to commemorate its 35th anniversary in 2020. This show has since been replaced by the far more extensive Farewell Tour.
According to a Neighbours insider who spoke to Digital Spy earlier, “the show seems poised to be the ultimate celebration of Neighbours and a chance for fans to say their final farewell.”
“The cast was moved by the outpouring of support from UK viewers following the cancellation of Neighbours. A few of the most well-liked celebrities will now travel abroad to celebrate with followers in person.”
The Neighbours conclusion, which was initially scheduled for Monday, August 1, has been changed to Friday, July 29 in the UK. The major finale episode will air at 9 p.m. after the earlier episodes.
Weekly episodes of Neighbours air at 1.45 and 6 o’clock on Channel 5 and online at My5. The series finale will run on Channel 5 at 9 p.m. on July 29 in the UK.
