The rumours are true – Australia’s longest-running soap opera, Neighbours is in its final throes. 

Producers first announced back in March that they would be calling a wrap on the 37-year-old program, first aired in 1985, with a star-studded final episode. With almost four decades worth of cast members, some of who are now massive Hollywood stars, like Russel Crowe, Guy Pearce and Liam Hemsworth, everyone’s dying to know who will be appearing in the show’s final episode!

But, of course, perhaps our most beloved Neighbours export, our very own international pop icon, Kylie Minogue, made a special trip back to home shores to reprise her character of Charlene Robinson, who was last seen on Ramsey Street back in 1988.

In a recent (June 8) interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers, the singer told the show’s host that she “got this role in Neighbours in 1986… There was quite a bit of pressure for me to come back, so I shot my scenes back in Australia.”

Minogue also reflected on the massive international music career she launched from her role on the Aussie show, crediting Neighbours for propelling her later success as a musician when its popularity “exploded” during her tenure and shaped how she “entered the music industry.”

“England just went crazy about [Neighbours], so it’s been with me ever since…You know, you’re in people’s households [and] the show was played twice a day,” she said. Watch the full interview below.

Minogue also dished some goss on her fellow Neighbours alum who would also be returning for the finale, like Guy Pearce, who also landed his breakout role as troubled-teen Mike Young on the show in 1986. Without giving away any spoilers, Minogue hinted at an emotional ending to their reunion, saying, “[Guy Pearce] was also on the show. He’s just filmed his little return as well. We’re all going to cry.”

The finale episode of Neighbours will air on August 1st.
