For the last episodes of Neighbours this summer, another familiar character is expected to return.
Following Channel 5’s decision to cancel the show last month, it was confirmed earlier today (March 3) that the Australian soap would be ending after 37 years on air due to a lack of funding.
We already know that Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) will return to Ramsay Street, as confirmed by Alan Fletcher, who also teased the return of other former characters ahead of the last episode in August.
Shane Ramsay (Peter O’Brien), who made his debut in the soap’s inaugural episode in 1985 before quitting two years later, is also set to return, according to The Sun.
Shane Ramsay, the son of Max and Maria Ramsay and the nephew of Madge Bishop, was embroiled in a variety of dramatic stories during his brief time on the show, including many vehicle accidents and being accused of manslaughter.
It follows Fletcher’s recent comments on reunions: “I am aware that the brilliant Harold Bishop will be returning to Ramsay Street near the end of the program.
“Someone from Karl’s sordid past is definitely coming back and there are many, many other names in the pot.
“I can assure you that the producers are working very, very hard to try and entice some of the most loved characters from Neighbours to at least make some appearances.”
Former star Jason Donovan has hinted that his character Scott Robinson and Charlene (Kylie Minogue) could make an appearance.
