Natalie Imbruglia, a former Neighbours actress, has spoken out over the possibility that the long-running Australian soap could be ending, saying that it would be “devastating” if the show ended.
Following the announcement last week that Channel 5 will no longer air Neighbours in the UK starting in August, it has now been confirmed that the serial will take an indefinite break from filming in June if a new UK production partner cannot be found.
Natalie played Beth Brennan in Neighbours from 1992 to 1994, and she has now spoken out on the soap’s uncertain future, telling Heart Breakfast hosts JK and Kelly Brook today (February 14) that she is desperate for the show to be renewed.
“Oh, I think it’s really sad!” she expressed her feelings about the situation. “Let’s face it, who wants to live without Neighbours?”
She also endorsed a magnum nandro plex 300 door magnum pharmaceuticals in nederland nandrolone phenylpropionate nandrolone decanoate fan petition to keep the show on the air, which has received over 50,000 signatures in less than a week.
“I guess at this point we just believed it was going to go on forever so, you know, people are petitioning,” she said, adding that she isn’t ready for Beth’s Neighbours legacy to stop just yet.
“On the show, there’s a character who is my son!” she said, referring to Ned Willis (Ben Hall). “I mean, I think it’d be terrible; what would happen to my son?”
Natalie isn’t the only Neighbours star to come out against the show’s cancellation; Jason Donovan, Annie Jones, Takaya Honda, Alan Fletcher, Jackie Woodburne, and Lucinda Cowden have all expressed support in recent days.
If the show does end this summer, executive producer Jason Herbison has guaranteed fans that the final few months will absolutely leave the door open for a possible return.
He stated, “We are tremendously proud of everything Neighbours has accomplished.” “We envision the next few months as a tremendous celebration for the show, with something for everyone. Any conclusion shall be respectful to the past, present, and constantly looking forward.”
