Scott and Charlene’s wedding is quite possibly Neighbours’ most defining moment — and one of soap’s as a whole.
It’s also 32 years old. Well, 33 if we go by the date in which it aired in Australia.
Feel old yet?
Erinsborough sweethearts Scott Robinson and Charlene Mitchell — portrayed by future music icons Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue — were one of the first real soap couples to capture the hearts of millions.
Yes, their relationship was a hugely popular one, and fans couldn’t wait to see the sweethearts tie the knot.
They eventually did just that in a beautiful ceremony during an episode broadcast in Australia 33 years ago today — airing on July 1, 1987 — where it was watched by two million viewers.
Meanwhile, UK audiences were given the chance to see the episode in question over a year later when it broadcast on November 8, 1988 — to a whopping 20 million viewers!
What a moment.
Last we heard of Neighbours’ original golden couple (soz, Karl and Susan), their son Daniel — who arrived in Erinsborough in 2014 — confirmed that they’re still together… togeeeether!
Scott and Charlene’s wedding is a signature soap moment, and it’s one that we’ll never forget, and we figured it only right to mark it’s 33rd anniversary with this little trip down memory lane — or rather, down Ramsay Street — by reminiscing, and we did so… especially for you!
Neighbours continues Wednesday 1 July at 1.45pm on Channel 5.
