Abdul’s appearance involves a romantic storyline with Dr Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher) who reveals a long-time crush on her.
“I remember watching Neighbours when I was in England in the 1980s. I thought it was a lot of fun and for it to still be popular after nearly 30 years is an amazing achievement,” said Abdul.
“Everyone was so nice and I will admit, Dr Karl was very charming. I had a really lovely time.”
Previous celebrities to appear on Neighbours include Red Symons, Molly Meldrum, Chris Lowe from the Pet Shop Boys, Clive James, Abigail, Rove McManus, Derek Nimmo, Shane Warne, Marcia Hines, Neil Morrissey, Human Nature, The Wiggles, Emma Bunton, Julian Clary, Michael Parkinson, Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Sinitta, Ian Dickson, Grace Knight, Ian Moss, Hamish & Andy, Kate Ceberano, Ben Lee, The Veronicas, André Rieu, wrestler Dave Batista and Lily Allen.
