Kylie Minogue revives Neighbours character Charlene Robinson

Kylie Minogue has revived her Neighbours character in a brand new Australia tourism advert to bring Brits Down Under.

The infamous hitmaker starred alongside a number of celebs in the three-minute music video commercial, including Adam Hills and former cricketer Shane Warne, and she featured in a number of scenes set to Matesong (written by Oz comedian and singer-songwriter Eddie Perfect).

One such segment saw Kylie dressed up in her soap character Charlene Robinson’s iconic wardrobe and honestly, we weren’t ready for it.

Wearing Charlene’s classic khaki overalls and a baggy sweatshirt getup, Kylie was seen lying on a creeper board with a spanner in hand as she serviced a car.

The $15 million (£7.9 million) tourism campaign targets audiences who are sick to death of Brexit without directly referring to the whole saga.

Glaring lyrics in the video included lines such as ‘this year’s been tough and confusing’ to ‘negotiating tricky trade deals is a shocker’, but all is good because Australia is waiting for us.

‘Dear United Kingdom, your besties across the ocean are calling,’ the commercial penned. ‘Love, your mates in Australia. Kylie Minogue and her mates invite the UK to visit Australia and come live our Philausophy!’


In an attempt to attract UK residents to Oz, the commercial pointed out that they ‘speak our language’ and we shouldn’t have any worries because we would still be able to get our hands on fish and chips and curries.

The clip was filmed across a number of stunning locations located Down Under, including Sandringham Beach just outside of Melbourne, Sydney and Byron Bay.

Tweeting the advert, Kylie excitedly posted: ‘So… see you in Australia soon then, yeah?’

Um, sure, if you buy us flights.
