After 37 years, viewers will finally say goodbye to the likes of Karl, Susan and Harold tonight as the last ever Neighbours episode airs. 

The cancellation of the Australian soap, set in the fictional Ramsay Street, was announced earlier this year.

The finale will air in the UK at 9pm tonight (July 29) on Channel 5 and the likes of Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are returning.

One superfan who will miss it is Bronwen Lloyd from Surlingham who got the chance to appear as an extra in the coffee shop and meet the cast back in 2014.

The 25-year-old has cystic fibrosis and her dream was made possible by the Starlight Children's Foundation.

She got to meet some of her favourite characters, including Jarrod 'Toadie' Rebecchi and Paul Robinson.

Miss Lloyd, who started watching the soap in 2011, said: "The experience was incredible seeing the set and cast and crew and getting to be in a scene was the best thing ever.

Bronwen Lloyd is very sad that her favourite show Neighbours is ending.
