Neighbours has announced it will cease production of the long-running Australian soap in June. Yip, the show that Kylie Minogue starred in as Charlene Robinson. The future of the show had been in doubt after Channel 5 last month confirmed it would stop airing the show. And on Thursday morning the show’s Twitter account said: ‘We are so sorry to say that after nearly 37 years and almost 9,000 episodes broadcast we have to confirm that Neighbours will cease production in June.
