Neighbours: Madge’s return

It was announced earlier this year that Neighbours would be coming to an end after 37 years.

The show final episode will air on Friday, July 29 2022 and a number of past characters will be making a return, including Scott and Charlene Robinson.

It has also been reported that Madge will be making an appearance in the final episode.

Madge died in 2001 from pancreatic cancer in the arms of her husband Harold.

A source told The Sun: “There was no way that someone as iconic and legendary as Madge wasn’t going to be seen in the soap’s final ever episode.

“It was just about how they could have her back when her death was such a huge part of the show’s history. It’s very clever.

“The fans are going to get goosebumps – it’s magical.”

Of course Madge has made a return after her death once before back in 2015. She appeared as a figment of Harold’s imagination for the soap’s 30th anniversary.

Lucinda Cowden, who plays Melanie Pearson, told Inside Soap that she bumped into Madge actress Anne Charleston during filming and “it was amazing.”
