Natalie Imbruglia has lent her support to the Save Neighbours campaign.
After Channel 5 announced that the show would be dropped from their schedules this summer, the Australian serial is in danger of being cancelled for good.
Devoted fans were heartbroken at the idea of losing Ramsay Street for good, and they wasted no time campaigning to keep the show alive.
In the wake of the tragic news, the hashtag #SaveNeighbours has been trending on social media, with one fan even starting a petition on Change.Org to keep the show from disappearing from our televisions.
On Friday’s (February 18) episode of The Graham Norton Show, Natalie, who portrayed Beth Brennan from 1992 and 1994, acknowledged Neighbours’ termination, calling it “awful.”
The celebrity, who recently competed in and won The Masked Singer UK, admitted, “I have signed the petition.”
‘Who wants to live without [Neighbours]?’ It’s a disaster.’
Listen up, listen up!
You can sign the petition to save Neighbours here, which has already received over 57,000 signatures.
Fans also succeeded in elevating the soap’s trademark theme song to No. 1 on Amazon and iTunes, dethroning Ed Sheeran on the latter platform.
Channel 5’s decision to cancel the show stems from a desire to invest in ‘original UK drama,’ with the broadcaster telling Metro.co.uk that there is a’strong appeal’ for it.
However, there is still hope for Neighbours, as Network 10 – which produces the show in Australia – is allegedly committed to keeping the show on the air, with a representative telling TV Tonight that they are ‘hopeful’ that Freemantle would find a new broadcast partner.
The soap’s Irish broadcaster, RTÉ, is currently ‘in talks’ with Fremantle.
The Graham Norton Show premieres on BBC One tomorrow at 10.35 p.m.
