jasondonovan-gal-capitalUnfortunately for Neighbours fans everywhere, soap bosses have failed in their efforts to lure Jason Donovan back to Ramsay Street.

After Lily Allen’s cameo on the Aussie soap, we thought we might start to see a few bored singers washing-up on the beaches of Erinsborough – but alas no.

After this news, it is thought that producers have little or no chance of getting Kylie Minogue back on the show – but Dannii should have a bit of spare time on her hands after Simon Cowell votes off her last couple of X Factor contestants.

“They asked me to come back and be part of the show. But I can’t – I’m working – which is a shame,” said Donovan, who played Scott Robinson back in the eighties.

The 41-year-old actor even revealed that programme chiefs have not only asked him to appear as part of the show’s upcoming 25th anniversary celebrations – they have been trying to get him back on Ramsey Street for years, with no success.

“Time has moved on considerably for me since then. I’m very proud of that show. It’s launched incredible careers over the years, and given a lot of work to people in the industry in Melbourne and Australia?, added Jason.

“In every day of my life I refer to it at some point and I’m not someone who runs away from that. I’m very proud of that, so long may it last.”

Donovan now lives in England where he is a radio host, singer and actor.
