Minogue has opened up about her return to the soap opera, saying that it was “sweet” to be reunited with her on-screen love interest – and ex boyfriend – Jason Donovan.

“I wanted to be reminded of being that 19-year-old again when I would get into my Datsun and fang it to Vermont South or the Network Ten studios at Nunawading [in Melbourne where the show is filmed],” Kylie told The Australian.

“It was very sweet to be with Jason and to think, ‘Wow, we’re still around’.”

It was previously “leaked” that Minogue and Donovan would play a very small part in the finale of Neighbours. However, the show’s executive producer Jason Herbison has since hinted that the pair have a bigger part than initially expected.

“What I’ve read is not what happens which is great. It hasn’t come out yet,” he told The Herald Sun.

Neighbours first aired in 1985, centring on the fictional community of Ramsay Street in Melbourne. Fans were devastated earlier this year when the show’s demise was confirmed as it was dropped by its broadcaster.
