It's the moment Neighbours fans have all been waiting for — Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are back as Ramsay Street's Charlene and Scott.
Neighbours has released some much-anticipated images of Kylie and Jason as their iconic characters just a few weeks before the Australian soap is due to come to an end.
Ever since it was announced that Neighbours would be coming to an end after 35 years on our screens, heartbroken fans of the soap have been clinging to the silver lining that Kylie and Jason would be returning to Ramsay Street to give the show the send-off it deserves.
And the wait to see the famous duo back where they first started their careers in the 80s is over as new images show the pair on Ramsay Street once again. It was recently revealed that the duo would be appearing in the very last episode of the soap, and now we finally know what their characters look like after so many years away from the soap.
Kylie can be seen wearing a denim jumpsuit, which seems to be a fitting upgrade from the mechanic's overalls she sported back in the day. Jason also looks pleased to be reprising his role as Scott, and the pair can be seen hugging on set in front of a 'for sale' sign in the garden of a Ramsay Street house.
Marking her return to the soap, Kylie shared some behind-the-scenes pictures with her fans on Twitter, showing her and Jason taking a selfie on set, as well as a Ramsay Street sign sporting an autograph from them both. Kylie captioned the image simply: "Now we’re back together"...
