While Scott and Charlene were everyone’s favourite Neighbours couple back in the late 1980s, Jason Donovan’s character did also have a deep bond with another Ramsay Street resident.

His friendship with Mike Young, played by Guy Pearce, was a bromance loved by viewers of the Australian soap.

In Neighbours and the crime thriller series Jack Irish, in which Pearce plays, Annie Jones played Mike’s girlfriend Jane Harris.

Pearce recalled his time on Neighbours as helping to establish his career.

There are specific times in life that serve as true markers, he added. “Being cast in Neighbours had unfathomable qualities and benefits, including the confidence it gave me and the lessons I learned from being on the show.

“Of course, there have been other instances in which I’ve gone on auditions and been cast in roles, but I’ll never forget this. As we all know, the show really took off and became huge, so I always consider myself quite lucky to have been cast at that time.

Neighbours, which has been on television for 37 years, will finish with a special double-episode airing on July 29.

Images of Minogue and Donovan as Scott and Charlene from the set have been made public by the producers, but their plot has been kept a secret.

I haven’t seen these folks in – some of them for over 30 years,” Minogue said in reference to her “emotional” return to the soap opera.

“And, you know, life goes by, and we’ve all experienced various things. And simply to kind of say, “Wow, this is part of our past” in a face-to-face setting. It was excellent.
