Ten begins the celebrations for Neighbours’ 35th anniversary

The celebrations have begun for Neighbours’ 35th anniversary with special episodes airing this week.

The announcement:

Hip, Hip, Hooray. Neighbours’ 35th Birthday Week Starts Today.

Special Anniversary Episodes At 6.30pm And 7.00pm This Week On 10 Peach.

It’s time to wrap the presents, ice the cake and put the finishing touches on the party playlist because today, Neighbours’ 35th birthday gets under way.

Whether you’re feeling sentimental or desperate for a dose of drama, every night this week Neighbours is serving up nostalgic anniversary episodes at 6:30pm and explosive Neighbours End Game episodes at 7:00pm, only on 10 Peach.

No one likes a party pooper, so we won’t spill all the details but can promise three unexpected deaths and five tear-jerking weddings. Whether you’re hungry for romance or have an appetite for a thrill, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Tonight at 6:30pm, the highly-anticipated Wedding Expo kicks off in Erinsborough with Lucy Robinson (Melissa Bell) and Mark Gottlieb (Bruce Samazan) rekindling their love by taking a leap of faith and saying, “I do”.

Wedding bells continue to ring with four more weddings this week with Paige Smith (Olympia Valance) and Scott McGregor (Mark Brennan), Prue Wallace (Denise Van Outen) and Gary Canning (Damien Richardson), Sky Mangel (Stephanie McIntosh) and Lana Crawford (Bridget Neval), and Des Clark (Paul Keane) and Jane Harris (Annie Jones) all getting bitten by the love bug.

Forget about toilet paper and stock up on tissues, because with this many white dresses and heart felt declarations of love, there won’t be a dry eye in the house. We’re not crying, you’re crying.

At 7:00pm Neighbours End Game sees Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta), Finn Kelly (Rob Mills), Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson), Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly), Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards) and Toadie (Ryan Moloney) pack their bags and head off to an insta-worthy island to celebrate Elly’s 35th birthday glamping in five-star style.

Preoccupied by the sun-soaked beach and each other’s bikini and board short clad bodies, the party goers ignore the signs that Finn’s memory is returning. Driven by his utter infatuation with Elly, Finn is plotting to win her back and will take out anyone who is standing in his way.

Things go from sunny and cheery to dark and twisted very quickly as Bea is first to fall victim to Finn’s old ways. Will she make it back to Erinsborough alive?

Neighbours star, Rob Mills said: “Filming Neighbours End Game was such an intense experience with the unravelling of Finn’s psyche, his vulnerability and the extreme turn he takes on the island.

“I feel incredibly privileged to be part of the Neighbours family, especially in the show’s 35th year as it continues to push boundaries and engage with audiences in Australia and around the world.”

Neighbours 35th Anniversary Week. This week at 6:30pm and 7:00pm on 10 Peach.
