Neighbours star Anne has returned for the 30th anniversary
Neighbours star Anne Charleston has admitted she was "dubious" about returning to the soap, because of the elaborate way her character had been written back in.
Stars of the Australian soap past and present attended a party at the Cafe de Paris in London tonight to celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary.
Charleston, Stefan Dennis, Tim Phillipps and Olympia Valance were among the cast who had flown over from Down Under especially to celebrate with British fans of the Channel 5 show, as well as former cast members Mark Little and Holly Valance.
Charleston, 72, played no-nonsense coffee shop owner Madge Bishop for 13 years in the soap, until her character died of cancer in 2001. Madge is returning for the 30th anniversary episodes in a vision to widower Harold Bishop (Ian Smith).
The actress compared her comeback storyline to Dallas.
