Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan return to Neighbours as Charlene and Scott for last episode

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan finally made their return to the soap that made them famous over 30 years ago, as Channel 5's Neighbours final episode was aired.

Kylie, 54, and Jason, also 54, were some of the biggest former stars of the show to return in what was an emotional end to the Australian soap after a 37 year run.

Special appearances were also made by Margot Robbie, Holly Valance, Natalie Imbruglia, Guy Pearce and Ian Smith.

Kylie and Jason reprised their roles as Scott and Charlene Robinson, and they appeared back on Ramsay Street in their recognisable green mini, 30 years after tying the knot and moving to Brisbane.

A curly-haired Charlene (Kylie) could be seen beaming as Scott (Jason) placed an arm around her shoulder and a tender kiss on her forehead as they reminisced about the street.

Charlene was dressed in a denim jumpsuit whilst her husband coordinated with a pair of dark jeans and a green checked shirt.

Kylie and Jason once dated in real life and their duet Especially For You could be heard playing on the radio in the background as Scott and Charlene visited the street.

As they stepped out of the car, Scott said: "Wow wow wow. This is crazy. We made it eh?'

Charlene then declared: "Home sweet home," before the pair reunited with their pals Mike Young (Guy Pearce) and Jane Harris (Annie Jones) for the episode's closing moments.

Kylie, who got her "big break" role as Charlene in 1986, spoke to Sky News about reprising her role as the iconic character for the show that made her famous.

Speaking about her time in the soap, Kylie added: "I started acting some years before that but my kind of big break and I guess how I became a household name was through Neighbours in 1986, so many moons ago."

Kylie has previously opened up about her return to the show, saying it was "quite something".

"It was lovely and emotional. Driving into Ramsay Street was quite something," she said, and asked about her reaction to being back on set, she added: "Firstly, where's all that time gone? Secondly, everything looks exactly the same.

"Thirdly, Scott, Charlene, Jane, Harold – it all just came flooding back."

Neighbours, which first aired in 1985 and follows the lives of those living and working in the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough, shot its final scenes last week.

It was announced in February that Channel 5 would drop the long-running soap from its line-up and doubts were quickly cast over whether the show's producers Fremantle Media would be able to secure a replacement broadcaster.

Shortly afterwards it was announced that the show would be ending after nearly 9,000 episodes, 63 weddings, 20 births and 68 deaths.

The final episode of Neighbours will air on Channel 5 this Friday (July 29) at 9pm.
