Prepare yourselves – Neighbours will be marking the 35th anniversary not with a big party, balloons and a ginormous cake that no one will ever eat. No, this one will go down with absolute tragedy.
Nothing quite this shocking has befallen the Ramsay Street residents since the plane crash of 2005 which saw an entire family get the chop after Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) chartered a plane carrying the whole street and it crashed into the sea on the show’s 20th anniversary.
The hit soap is set to mark its big birthday in a huge way, not just with some killer scenes, but also with a series of late night specials airing at 10pm for a whole week. And that means it has the scope to get a whole lot darker too.
From Monday 16th March for one week, viewers will be hit with a double whammy of Neighbours as the show will air during its usual day time slots, and then turn sinister and disturbing when it also airs at its new temporary time of 10pm for five whole days.
And now that show bosses have confirmed not one but three, THREE deaths, you can get an idea just how dark it’s going to get.
Think the Hotel Death Trap week, only much, much worse.
The day time episodes will follow Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) as she desperately tries to save her job by organising the wedding expo that will see the return of several faces of Neighbours’ past and could lead to several surprise weddings.
Sounds cheerful enough.
But that’ll be the light to the late night show’s shade, which will see most of the Neighbours favourites take a trip to an island for Elly’s (Jodi Anasta) 35th birthday, including the likes of Chloe and Toadie (Ryan Moloney). It should be the time of their lives as new mum Elly celebrates her big day, but no. Things end in utterly terrifying disaster and tragic blood shed.
Who won’t make it back to the mainland alive?
Strewth. This will be more nail-biting than the whole Who Pushed PR? thing.
There’s not long to go, watch this space for more juicy spoilers as the story unfolds.
