Kylie Minogue is making a comeback on legendary Australian show Neighbors to film the final scenes for the long-running soap opera.
And on Monday, the 53-year-old singer admitted it was “beautiful but also emotional” to return to Ramsay Street.
“It was beautiful and emotional. Driving down Ramsay Street was something,” she told Today Extra.

“First, where has all the time gone? Second, everything looks exactly the same. Third, Scott, Charlene, Jane, Harold, everything just came back.”
She continued, “There’s been a lot of talk about memories and going back in time.”
Kylie’s character, feisty mechanic Charlene Robinson, catapulted her to worldwide fame and fortune.

She left Neighbors in June 1988 after becoming the first person to win four Logie Awards in one year and the youngest recipient of a Gold Logie.
She launched a phenomenally successful music career, selling more than 80 million albums worldwide.
Neighbors announced in a tweet back in March that production of the long-running soap would be halted.
“We are so sorry to say that after nearly 37 years and nearly 9,000 episodes aired, we have to confirm that Neighbors will end production in June,” the show wrote.

“Following the loss of our key broadcast partner in the UK [Channel 5] and despite an intense search for alternative funding, we simply have no choice but to cancel the show.
“We know this is a huge disappointment for our amazing, loyal fans, as well as for all of us on the team. We thank you for all of your messages and support and promise to end the show on an incredible climax. From here on we celebrate neighbors.”
Network 10 addressed the end of the series in a statement to Australian media in March, admitting it was a “difficult decision”.
Fremantle, the production company behind the soap, said it was unable to find “alternative funding” for the series.
