Channel 5 is celebrating Neighbours’ milestone 35th anniversary with a week of special episodes.
“Who would have thought hey? I remember nearly 35 years ago I said it would last about six months, well who is eating their words now!
“I’m incredibly proud to be a part of Neighbours reaching this milestone, it’s a fabulous celebration for everyone involved, cast and crew, to mark this moment with an awesome week of episodes planned for our viewers, a touch of nostalgia mixed in with some edge of your seat drama – something for everyone.” – Stefan Dennis aka character Paul Robinson
The regular 1:45pm and 5:30pm weekday episodes will draw upon the show’s illustrious history and feature a host of former cast members returning to the infamous Ramsay Street while an evening offering each night brings a darker drama.
The storyline of the 10pm offerings centre around Elly being spirited off to Pierce’s remote island glamping-resort to celebrate her 35th birthday.
Erinsborough favourite Toadie is among the doomed passenger list. Unbeknown to all, Finn Kelly’s evil side has surfaced and he’s has
hatched his ultimate deadly revenge plan that will deliver severe consequences. Which three Neighbours favourites won’t survive
the fateful adventure?
In Neighbours’ regular time-slot of 1:45pm and 5:30pm, the explosive Anniversary week kicks off with Chloe’s (April Rose Pengilly) genius idea to stage a wedding expo to save Lassiters – with input from Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou). This will evolve into five unique weddings, one per episode, which also involves reuniting couples featured from different decades of Neighbours that didn’t make it down the aisle in their original stint on the series.
