Aussie icon and beloved actress, Margot Robbie is set to feature in the historic final episode of Neighbours.

The 32-year-old, who played Donna Freedman from 2008-2011 filmed the Zoom appearance sometime after the show wrapped filming on the 10th of June.

Fellow Aussies Delta Goodrem, Jesse Spencer, Holly Valance, Carla Bonner, Natalie Imbruglia and Kym Valentine, who all had their start on the show, will all return to the finale.

“Everyone working on the soap was determined that Neighbours would end on a real high and when they reached out to Margot she said ”yes” straight away” according to an unknown source.

“There was no way she wasn’t going to be a part of the historic big finale as she’s always spoken so fondly about her time on the soap and how it helped to launch her movie career. Sadly, she couldn’t get to Australia for filming but recorded a special clip that will be shown in the big finale.”

Margot instead sent 37 bottles of champagne to the set as a gift, one for each year that the show has been in on television.

The show’s executive producer Jason Herbison announced Robbie had sent the gift and the cast raised a toast following the end of filming on the show’s final ever day of production.

Robbie shot to fame in the Australian soap playing aspiring fashion designer Donna Freedman. She previously credited the show and said it was “brilliant training” for her Hollywood career and admitted that she could never learn lines at the speed she used to during her soap days.

The finale will air in both Australia and the UK on Friday the 29th of July.
