    I know I certainly don't watch it anymore, but like q lot of people only really gave up in the mid/ late 2000s, which was a solid 20 years of viewing. Obviously an icon of many of our youths.

    Some many iconic moments and characters from my youth, but this is one many go back to:

    Afternoon viewing staple at University, I also used to watch old re-runs on Gold every day before school. Haven't watched for years now but may stick it on tonight for nostalgia purposes.

    I don't think Jo Joyner was ever in Neighbours, so we'll never know.

    Bridget. She was in it from 07-09. I've only ever been an extremely casual viewer but for some reason I used to find myself watching a lot during that period and she was unbelievably terrible

    The worst actress was the one that played Joanna Hartman, Annalise's sister.

    8:20 in this video is the greatest example of Bridget's acting range

    I can't believe we've got this far without mentioning the second worst actress, Rosemary Daniels (oh, it's just been done I see) and the worst, the much maligned MRS LIM of the Lim family who moved in for a few months and Julie accused of eating her dog in a SPECTACULAR piece of tv racism not seen since Alf Garnett was deigned "actually a bit wrong"...

    Poor Ric Alessi :(

    Searches for Stuart Parker also yield sadly mixed results

    I'm genuinely sorrowful that the Lims haven't been amongst the returnees for the 30th anniversary.

    I don't think so. A far more stern character. I seem to recall she fell off a ladder.

    There's a cheap picture of Rebecca Ritters (Hannah Martin) displayed outside a hairdressers near where I work as a "model". I'll take a photo later.

    I think that happened during a half-term or other school holiday because I made a point to watch both episodes that day. I really hated Kerry.

    Edit: VoR got in there with my favourite example of Neighbours' racial stereotyping policy.

    I remember they had about one black character in the first 20 years and he was British.

    I remember when Debbie and boyfriend went to the UK and they helped a young street urchin and a result appeared national TV to TWENTY MILLION VIEWERS.

    In unrelated UK episodes: it did become ALL ABOUT Izzy Hoyland for a couple of years.
