ESPECIALLY FOR FREEVEE: Kylie Minogue “open” to Neighbours return

KYLIE Minogue could be open to an especially Freevee role in the reboot of cult Australian soap-opera Neighbours

The 55-year-old singer reprised her role of Charlene Robinson for the finale of the Australian soap in July last year – alongside Jason Donovan returning as her on-screen love interest Scott Robinson – but Amazon Freevee and Freemantle recently announced the return of ‘Neighbours’ for the second half of 2023, and Kylie could be back on Ramsay Street at some point. 

When asked if she thinks Charlene will ever pop back to Erinsborough or whether it was her last-ever episode, she told Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Amanda Holden: “Ah, well, I didn’t think she would before and she did. 

“So, I’m going to remain open to that.”

Kylie is “interested” to see where TV bosses go with new ‘Neighbours’ episodes, and predicts they will be “amazing”. 

She added: “I mean, good for them. It took us… I think when that news came out that it was being picked up.

“There was a there was kind of a bit of a collective … ‘Erh.’

“But you know, for the cast and the crew to pick it up it’ll be interesting to see where they go with it. 

“How the dynamic will change and how they’ll deliver. I think it’ll be amazing.”

In March, Jason admitted he was “surprised” to hear about Neighbours’ upcoming return. 

Speaking about the shock announcement on Nova’s ‘Fitzy and Wippa with Kate Richie’, Jason said: “I’ll be honest with you, it was a surprise.

“But … I think anything that provides opportunity to keep people working and actors and producers and all those sort of things.”
