Is Kylie Minogue returning to Neighbours?

Anne Charleston - who played matriarch Madge Bishop - has revealed Kylie is involved in the Australian soap's 30th anniversary celebrations


Overall lovers, rejoice! Kylie Minogue looks set to step back into character as Charlene Robinson. Last month the singer and The Voice coach sent a cryptic tweet to her followers – a homage to her famous Neighbours mechanic who last seen behind the wheels heading for a new life in Brisbane. 


And now we might just have the confirmation we’ve been craving that the 46-year-old chart topper is headed back to Ramsay Street for the show’s 30th anniversary after a 26-year absence. 

Anne Charleston – who played Madge Bishop on the Australian soap – is over in Blighty for the Edinburgh Fringe and let the cat out of the bag while speaking to The Mirror. “The Neighbours special thirtieth anniversary is coming up. I will probably be involved and it will go to air in March,” she revealed, before making a tantalising admission. 

“I think Kylie is on board for the special and I imagine everyone will be in on it because it’s a big occasion. I look on those days with fondness and there is no way in hell I’d walk away from the special because it’s a celebration and I think we should all be involved in it.”


Anyone else reckon “all” should include Jason Donovan’s Scott Robinson? His and Charlene’s on-screen son Daniel has recently shown his face on Ramsay Street – isn’t it about time for a Robinson family reunion…?
