“Look, I was surprised”: Jason Donovan on Neighbours revival

Jason Donovan takes a logical approach when asked on UK radio for his thoughts on soapie revival.

Jason Donovan has now commented on the revival of Neighbours, after his cameo appearance with Kylie Minogue on what was previously the soap’s last-ever episode.

Asked on Virgin Radio if he felt “the dirty” had been done to him, he replied, “I think you can look at it two ways. You can look at it that way… or you can look at it the way that we created such a storm that there was only one way for it to go, and that was to bow down to public pressure and Amazon’s Mr Bezos… is that his name? Bow down to The Bezos and bring it back.”

He added: “Look, I was surprised. I’m not gonna lie to you. I think it happened very quickly! But quick is good!”

Kylie Minogue recently said felt a bit “miffed” at the surprise revival.

“Yeah, ‘happy’ is probably not the emotion,” she admitted. “You know, ‘miffed’ may have been the word.

“But I know with the producer, he’d said, like, it wasn’t [certain]. They didn’t know. So all the affection and love that went into the final episode was the truth.”

Kylie added: “I’m happy for them now and I’m interested to see how [Neighbours] is going to change.”

Neighbours returns to 10 on Monday September 18 and a week later on Prime Video.
