Margot Robbie is going back to Oz for a nostalgic appearance on Neighbours’ final ever episode – the show that first launched her on the path to Hollywood stardom.

Fresh from wrapping on the Barbie movie, Robbie is confirmed to appear in the Australian soap’s last episode as it comes to a close following an impressive 37-year run that started back in 1985.

Robbie portrayed teenager Donna Freedman on the show between 2008 and 2011, before going on to star in films like Suicide Squad, The Wolf of Wall Street, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and I, Tonya

The final episode of Neighbours will air in Australia on July 28, and the UK on July 29.

Other returning cast members include Kylie Minogue, Jason Donavan, Aussie singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem, pop star Natalie Imbruglia, and fan favourite Mike himself, Guy Pearce.

For those who aren’t familiar with the show, or didn’t go to uni in the ’90s, Neighbours follows the lives of people in the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough.

It holds the record as Australia’s longest-running TV drama, and has aired in the UK for decades, too, building a loyal audience despite a move from BBC One to Channel 5 in 2008. 

The soap is coming to an end because Channel 5 decided to drop the programme from its schedules and production company Fremantle was unable to find a new network partner.
