Let’s examine that list in more detail…
Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue
Or as they’ll be known to fans… Mitchell and Robinson are Charlene.
For anyone who watched Neighbours in the 1980s, the appearance of pop diva Kylie Minogue and performer Jason Donovan, both 54, is guaranteed to trigger intense nostalgia.
The episode from July 1987 that featured Scott and Charlene’s wedding has come to symbolise the entire run of the programme.
According to reports, about 20 million Britons watched the wedding.
They are still pictured returning to Ramsay Street in the final trailer with their arms still around one other. Fans will undoubtedly find it to be immensely unforgettable.
Margot, an actress best known for playing Harley Quinn, recently appeared on Neighbours.
She quit the soap in 2011 to focus on a career in Hollywood, and her decision paid off handsomely as seen by her early success in the 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street.
Unfortunately, Neighbours viewers will recognise her as Donna Freedman, a regular character in the late 2010s who wed Ringo Brown (Sam Clark) before the terrible event that led to his death just one month later.
Guy is most known to moviegoers for his roles in Memento, Iron Man 3, LA Confidential, and The Hurt Locker.
However, they are unaware that the 54-year-old actor made his acting debut as Mike Young, a character who debuted on the popular Australian soap opera around the same time as Scott and Charlene.
In a recent interview, Guy described the end of the programme as “sad” and described returning to Ramsay Street as “surreal.”
He continued by saying that he is still close friends with Jason, Kylie, and the other cast members. He said that it is a little sad that Jason and Kylie still refer to each other as Scott and Mike.
In the episodes preceding the conclusion, Guy can be seen reunited with Jane, Mike’s previous flame.
Holly Valance and Natalie Imbruglia
These two former Neighbours actors both made appearances on the soap opera in the 1990s, but they also have the talent of singing.
Natalie made waves in 1997 with her breakthrough single Torn and follow-up Big Mistake. Natalie played Beth Brennan on the television programme in the early 1990s.
That year saw the publication of her debut album, Left Of The Middle, which went platinum and earned her three Grammy nominations.
Holly, on the other hand, played Felicity Scully from 1999 to 2002. That same year, she also recorded her hit single Kiss Kiss and album Footprints, both of which produced two additional top three hits.
Icons from Neighbours, like Madge and Ian Bishop
Of all, Neighbours’ conclusion simply wouldn’t be the same if some of its most well-known characters hadn’t made a comeback.
Naturally, one of them is Harold Bishop, who debuted on the soap opera in 1987 and is portrayed by actor Ian Smith. He left in 1991 but came back in 1996, joining the cast on a regular basis until 2009.
One of the series’ most enduring characters, Harold’s reappearance has been eagerly anticipated. Ian previously returned for guest episodes in 2011 and 2015.
Anne Charleston, who played Madge Bishop, Harold’s first wife, is also returning, however she is only visible as a ghost because she passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2001.
