Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan to feature in emotional Neighbours final scene

Fans of Neighbours are in store for a very emotional final scene, it has been revealed.

Viewers will bid farewell to the Channel 5 soap this August after over three decades on screen, and its final scene will feature arguably the show's most famous couple played by Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan.

The two stars will be returning for a very special episode to mark the end of an era. It was decided the show would be ended for good this summer after Channel 5 pulled out funding for the programme and another broadcaster couldn't be found.

The final episode of Neighbours will air on August 1, with some very special guests, reports The Mirror. To end the show, Kylie and Jason - appearing as their characters - will return to Ramsay Street, declaring they are "home".

"Everyone is gutted the show is coming to an end but they are determined to go out on a high," a source told The Sun, "Kylie and Jason have such strong ties to the series they didn't even think twice about returning.

"The final scene will make fans well up and sees Charlene and Scott return to the street as they declare 'we're home'. Bosses have deliberately written the script so that Neighbours could come back in a few years should anyone want to rescue it."

Kylie had previously opened up about her "emotional" return to the show.

"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."

She wasn't able to say too much about the final, but did add: "There was a lot of talking about memories and going back in time."

Executive producer Jason Herbison previously confirmed that the pair would be back, adding: "Scott and Charlene are the ultimate Neighbours couple and it would not feel right to end the show without them.

"We are thrilled that Jason and Kylie have come home to play a very special part in our series finale. It has been an emotional experience for them, for us and I'm sure it will be for our viewers."
