“It was emotional to get back on set and it was beautiful, actually, that we could see each other,” she said. “I haven’t seen these people – some of them – for over 30 years.

“And, you know, life goes by and we’ve all been through different things. And just to kind of be face to face and say, wow, that’s part of our history. That was awesome.”

Neighborswhich first aired in Australia in 1985 before coming to the UK the following year, was axed earlier this year after failing to secure new funding since being abandoned by its broadcaster.

After much speculation, the announcement in April that Minogue and Donovan would reprise their roles – which saw them wed in one of the most famous weddings in soap opera history – sent the internet into a frenzy.

The couple also dated in real life and released the single Especially for You together in 1988.

Minogue said Charlene’s return is a “wink and I’ll miss you” moment, but the news spread quickly and took “a life of its own”.

Speaking about her time on the soap, she said: “I started acting a few years ago but my kind of big break and I guess became a household name was thanks to Neighbors in 1986, so many years ago. of moons.”

“We all knew this day was coming, but until we were here right now when the very last scene was filmed, it was hard to express how we would all feel,” he said.

“Of course it’s sad and tears flowed, but we’re also extremely proud. Thirty-seven years is an incredible achievement and it should be celebrated.

“We have also been incredibly touched by the response from our viewers around the world. Neighbors is more than a TV show for many people. They see us as part of the family and we feel privileged to have been guests into their homes, and I know Neighbors’ legacy will live on for many years to come.”
