Digital Spy / 16 AUGUST 2010

Neighbours star Margot Robbie says that being a central part of the show’s anniversary is a “big deal”.

Margot Robbie has revealed that she is “flattered” to be involved in the 25th anniversary special of Neighbours.

The 20-year-old Australian actress, whose character Donna Freedman will marry Sam Clark’s Ringo Brown during the 6,000th episode, said that people comparing them as a screen pair to 1987 power couple Scott and Charlene is “a big deal”.

Robbie told AAP: “People are saying that my wedding is this generation’s Kylie [Minogue] and Jason [Donovan] wedding – that’s big shoes to fill.

“But I’m quite honoured to get to be a part of it, this is a big milestone. I’m very flattered. It is a big deal. It’s a big climax of a lot of storylines, they all come together and kind of blow up in everyone’s faces.”

Robbie also said that she finds it “remarkable” that the show has been running for so many years.
