Neighbours fans crying as Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan return - but some left disappointed


Neighbours fans were thrilled to see Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan back on Ramsay Street - but some were left disappointed.

The characters Scott and Charlene married on the soap in the 1980s, thrilling fans as millions tuned in to see the pair say 'I do'. Viewers erupted in joy when it was confirmed the pair would return to Ramsay Street one last time to mark the finale.

The Channel 5 soap has come to an end after nearly four decades on screen, but some fans were left disappointed by what happened when Scott and Charlene stepped foot on Ramsay Street again.

As they arrived on the street, Especially for You - their duet as Kylie and Jason - was heard playing on the radio. And when they stopped and pulled up, they remarked on all the for sale signs on the houses.

Declaring they're home, Scott leaned in to kiss Charlene on the head in a sweet moment.

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

Charlene then declares: "Home sweet home."

And in one of the final scenes, Jane and Charlene reunited with a hug as Scott could be seen running to join them as they celebrated being back at the place where they found love together.

But some fans were left disappointed by their return, especially Kylie's - as they felt she didn't have enough words.

"Not Chanel 10 hyping up Margot Robbie and Kylie Minogue’s return in #Neighbours when they only had a 2.3 second cameo," one fan wrote online, as a second added: "Big non-speaking role for Kylie #Neighbours #NeighboursFinale."

A third shared: "Four words? Only four lousy words? Kylie would be NOTHING without #Neighbours but she's apparently too precious now to use her voice on the show that made her, the most iconic show on TV, in its last episode after 37yrs. Disappointing."

However, others heralded the duo for coming back and admitted the scene made them "emotional".

"Why do I feel emotional seeing Jason and Kylie, when I only started watching #Neighbours 4 weeks ago?" one wrote, as a second added: "God love, Kylie & Jason for doing this. #AllTheFeels #Neighbours #NeighboursFinal."
