Neighbours will be celebrating its big 35th birthday in huge style as the Australian soap will double its amount of episodes that week for the special occasion, set to air from 16th March 2020.
But who is in the running to be killed off? Here’s RadioTimes.com‘s picks and theories…
Paige Smith (Olympia Valance)
Gary Canning (Damien Richardson)
Hendrix Greyson (Benny Turland)
Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly)
Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson)
Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan)
Finn Kelly (Rob Mills)
Money surely has to be on Finn getting killed off in the Neighbours’ special. Ever since he stepped foot in Erinsborough, he’s caused havoc, and now his memory’s slowly coming back, he looks set to return to his villainous ways. Surely someone has to bring an end to the irredeemable? And with the drama seemingly centred around him and his plan for “revenge” on Pierce’s island, surely he can’t be allowed to get away with much more… or can he?
Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta)
The storylines over the past couple of weeks involving Elly have come closer and closer to Finn’s. They have been will-they-won’t-they for the past couple of weeks, but when a kiss ignites his memory, can Elly deal with the guilt? Will she end up being the object of Finn’s deadly desires? Or could she be killed in the crossfire on the holiday from hell? We know actress Anasta is set to leave Neighbours in 2020, but is it for good?
Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney)
Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards)
He may have his own island, but that doesn’t mean Pierce is safe from troublesome Finn. While it’s not yet confirmed whether or not he will be on the glamping trip, we can make an assumption he will be. But will he find himself killed in the deadly disaster?
Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher)
Now, come on, it wouldn’t be a big birthday without a big shock, and killing off beloved Dr Karl certainly would be. He’s been heavily involved with getting Finn back on the straight and narrow, but will he find himself killed by his kindness?
Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne)
Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan)
Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson)
Poor Bea has had a tough time of it, having eventually won over Finn Kelly but it seems their love won’t last. In the 35th anniversary, we know she will be on the island, and somehow Finn will put her in a mineshaft – not exactly true romance, we’d say. However, when all comes to all, would Finn really kill his girlfriend? Don’t put it past him…
