It's the day that no Neighbours fan wanted to see, but the date for the final episode of the Australian soap has arrived. Here's how you can watch the Neighbours finale online wherever you are in the world.
Since it was announced earlier this year that Neighbours would end after 37 years on our screens, fans have been wondering how their favourite soap would come to a close.
But now we know that iconic stars from the show's past will be making a grand comeback, as well as seeing some of our fave current characters get the happy-ever-afters they deserve.
With Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan returning for the final ever episode as iconic couple Scott and Charlene Robinson, this is an evening not to be missed. Talking about making her return, Kylie said: "It feels amazing, surreal, and very emotional. We worked with the director we worked with back in the 80s, so a few familiar faces. Same houses, same street - there is no easy answer, just a mix of emotions, but very happy."
Here is how you can tune in and give those Ramsay Street residents the send-off they deserve...
How to watch the Neighbours finale online in the UK
Fans will be able to watch the antepenultimate episode at the usual time of 1:45 pm and 6 pm on Friday, July 29 followed by the history-making finale which will air as a double-episode special at 9 pm the same evening.
After the final episode, Channel 5 will also air two special Neighbours documentaries — Neighbours Made Me A Star at 10:05 pm, followed by Neighbours Greatest Hits at 11:30 pm.
Jason Donovan explained just how much the finale means to him and Kylie. He explained: "I can probably speak for both of us and say it was an incredible training ground and opportunity for us. The first day I saw Kylie on set in 1987, we were talking about a TV show playing brother and sister back in 1980 — we did have other work, but we really hit the ground running with Neighbours, so it solidified our craft.
"To be a part of that legacy and see people's careers develop and project Australia to the rest of the world. It is very special", he added.
