Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are returning to Neighbours.

The music stars shot to fame in the late 1980s playing lovebirds Scott Robison and Charlene Mitchell in the Aussie soap opera before departing their roles to embark on pop careers but the pair have reportedly already filmed return scenes to give the show a “fairy tale ending” after it was axed earlier this year, according to the Herald Sun.

The pair were famously married on the show back in 1988 and following the wedding, Kylie, now 53, exited the show and went on to enjoy decades of chart success with hits such as ‘I Should Be So Lucky’, ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’, and ‘All the Lovers’ and teamed up with her on-screen husband and real-life ex-boyfriend for the release of 1989 smash duet ‘Especially for You’.

The shoot is said to have taken place at Pin Oak Court in Vermont South and while no other details have been revealed about their alleged return, bosses are hoping to lure other famous alumni back to the show before the final episode airs.

The soap – which began in 1985 and has also launched the careers of other superstars such as Holly Valance, Margot Robbie and Guy Pearce – faced the chop back in March when UK broadcaster Channel 5 decided not to renew their broadcasting deal and despite campaigns to save the show, it was eventually announced that it would come to an end later this year after almost 9000 episodes.

At the time, A spokesperson said: “It is with sadness that after nearly 37 years and almost 9,000 episodes broadcast, we are confirming that ‘Neighbours’ will cease production in the summer. Following the loss of a key broadcast partner in the UK, and despite a search for alternative funding, we currently have no option but to rest the show.

‘Real Groove’ hitmaker Kylie was among the first to pay tribute to the soap, noting that she will be “be forever grateful” to the show for launching her career.

She tweeted: “I’ll be forever grateful for the experience the friends I made on @neighbours. We had no idea how big the show would become and how passionately viewers would take it to heart. Pure love! I can still hear Madge calling… CHARLENE!!!!”(sic)

The final episode of Neighbours will be broadcast on 1st August 2022.
