When was Kylie Minogue on Neighbours and will she be returning for the final episode?

IT'S the end of an era for Neighbours fans as they get ready to wave goodbye to Ramsay Street.

One person who will forever be thankful to the Australian soap for her big break is pop princess Kylie Minogue.

When was Kylie Minogue in Neighbours?

Aged just 17-years-old, Kylie first appeared in Neighbours in April 1986 as she took on the role of former wild child and mechanic Charlene Mitchel.

Charlene tied the knot with Scott Robinson, portrayed by Jason Donovan, and the pair became one of the biggest couples in Neighbours – with their wedding one of the most iconic soap nuptials in history.

Kylie quit the programme in mid-1988 to focus on her music career, after winning a Gold Logie for her role.

Her character appeared one last time in July, 1988, and left Erinsborough to start her apprenticeship at a garage in Brisbane, bidding an emotional farewell as she left her husband Scott behind.

Scott eventually joined her in Brisbane – after some love triangle drama with Poppy Skouros – and the couple welcomed two children off-screen, in 1992 and in 1996.

Charlene has never returned to Erinsborough ever since.

Will Kylie return for the Neighbours finale?

TV fans are still reeling from the shock of the news that Neighbours will come to an end of the summer 2022.

After nearly four decades on the air, the iconic show will stop filming in June, 2022, as an official statement recently revealed.

Channel 5 first announced its plans to drop the programme from its schedules, prompting production company Fremantle Media – in charge of producing Neighbours – to try and find a new home for the soap.

But their attempts have been unsuccessful.

Following the news, fans have been begging Kylie to return, but as yet there is no conformation that she will return for the show's finale.

"Wish you'd come back one last time", one follower commented.

Another chimed in: "you and Jason Donovan need to return ASAP!!!!" while a third added: "please come back ONE LAST TIME."

What has Kylie said about Neighbours ending?

Kylie took to Twitter to pay tribute to the show that catapulted her into fame.

She tweeted: "I’ll be forever grateful for the experience and 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!!!!"
