Kylie Minogue finally breaks silence on Neighbours finale after backlash from fans | The Sun

KYLIE Minogue has broken her silence after backlash from fans over her appearance in the Neighbours finale.

The Channel 5 soap has come to an end after nearly four decades on screen.

Kylie flew from London to her hometown of Melbourne to film scenes with her onscreen husband Jason Donavon for the finale.

Their characters, Scott and Charlene, married on the soap in the 1980s, thrilling fans as millions tuned in to see the pair say "I do".

Kylie spoke out after the finale when she shared a series of throwback photos on Instagram from her time on the Aussie soap.

Many of the pics were of Scott and Charlene in the fictional Erinsborough suburb where Neighbours is set.

"Yep, there were tears! Congratulations to the @neighbours team for the heart-warming and celebratory finale," Kylie captioned her post.

"You’ll be in my heart always!!!"

Viewers erupted with joy when it was confirmed the pair would return to Ramsay Street one last time to mark the finale.

Some fans, however, were left "deeply disappointed" by what happened when Scott and Charlene stepped foot on the famous road 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, before adding: "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 let down by their return, especially Kylie's – as they felt she didn't have enough words.

Alongside an array of angry-faced emojis, one person penned: "A big non-speaking role for Kylie then? Deeply disappointed."

Echoing their comments, someone else said: "Kylie would be nothing without Neighbours, but apparently she's too precious now to use her voice on the show that made her."

Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison defended Kylie, saying it was not her fault she didn't have more dialogue.

He explained the iconic duo filmed their scenes before he had even written the final episode – so he had to fit their appearance in aroundthe storyline.

"Our discussions with Jason and Kylie were always about making a small appearance," Jason told TV Tonight.

"They didn't want to overshadow the current cast or make the finale about them.

"We also filmed their scenes before I'd written the episode, so whatever we filmed had to fit in with that."

Jason added: "I hate to see Kylie copping any criticism – she was nothing short of amazing on the day."
