The date is getting closer!

Margot Robbie is to return to Neighbours for the long-running soap's finale, the show has confirmed.

Neighbours was first broadcast in 1985. It quickly became a huge hit in the UK and in Australia, and helped kickstart the career of numerous stars, including Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe, Liam Hemsworth, Natalie Imbruglia, and later Suicide Squad star Robbie.

The Oscar-nominated actress played Donna Freedman from 2008 to 2011.

Many big names are retuning to the Australian soap for its final episode next week.

House actor Jesse Spencer and singer Delta Goodrem are confirmed, while it's been reported that Kylie Minogue's Charlene Mitchell and Jason Donovan's Scott Robinson would return to the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough, alongside actors Guy Pearce and Daniel MacPherson.

Eastenders was forced to end after British broadcaster Channel 5 said it would drop the show from its schedules to focus on original UK drama.

The show will come to a close with a double episode special broadcast at 21:00 BST on Friday, 29th July on Channel 5.

Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison previously spoke to the BBC about how it would finish, saying: "I was really keen to have an ending that would be fulfilling, joyous and would be very Neighbours - it would feel satisfying in terms of where the characters and the storylines are."

Don't be too sad about the end though. Tickets are still available for Neighbours: The Farewell Tour...
