Neighbours set to film scenes for 'top secret' storyline in Dublin this month

Neighbours' Alan Fletcher and Jackie Woodburne are set to film scenes in Dublin later this month.

The pair - who play Karl and Susan Kennedy on the long-running soap - will be filming scenes for a top secret storyline which will focus on their characters, according to RTÉ.

The plotline will coincide with Neighbours' 35th anniversary.

An RTÉ spokesperson said that Woodburne, who is originally from Co. Antrim, is "so delighted to bring cast and crew over to her side of the hemisphere."

"We're very excited about Neighbours coming to film in Ireland for the first time ever. An Irish generation have grown up watching and loving Neighbours and fans here have a very special relationship with it and its characters," the spokesperson continued.

Neighbours is set to mark their 35th anniversary with a week of episodes beginning March 16 - which will see five weddings and three deaths.

And there are a number of legends who are set to return to Ramsay Street to mark the occasion.

Stephanie McIntosh (Sky Mangel), Bruce Samazan (Mark Gottlieb), Melissa Bell (Lucy Robinson), Olympia Valance (Paige Smith), Paul Keane (Des Clarke), Andrew Morley (Jack Callahan), Annie Jones (Jane Harris), Damien Bodie (Dylan Timmins) and Scott McGregor (Mark Brennan) are all set to return [via TV Night].

Neighbours has a reputation for going big with our anniversary milestones and the 35th will be no exception. We’re thrilled to be joined by an honour-roll of returnees, chosen to represent a cross section of past eras of the show. Together we’re in the midst of filming our most ambitious storylines ever and I can’t wait for viewers to see what we have in store," executive producer of Neighbours, Jason Herbison previously said.
