Video: Kylie denies rumours of Neighbours return

Kylie has broken the hearts of Neighbours fans the world over, by squashing the rumour that she was due to appear in the show's 30th anniversary next year. "It's just not happening" Kylie said in an interview with ITV London's appropriately named Charlene White. "It's just a little rumour that got legs".

She said she was glad that people still cared about her character Charlene, who famously married Jason Donovan's character Scott in a fabulous 80s wedding watched by millions around the world - 20 million in the UK alone. "I'm just happy that she's still around. I have such fond memories of Neighbours"

Kylie: I won't be going back to Ramsay Street

Kylie Minogue has revealed that, despite rumours to the contrary, she won't be returning to Ramsay Street to celebrate the 30th anniversary of TV show Neighbours next spring.

Her Neighbours co-star, Anne Charleston, who played Madge Bishop, had been quoted as saying she believed Kylie had signed up for the reunion show special, which is due to air in March next year.

And, Kylie herself added fuel to the fire in July, tweeting: "I bought overalls today. #overalls"

But, in an interview with ITV London's Charlene White, ahead of her UK tour, she confirmed that she would not be going back to Ramsay Street to reprise the role of Charlene.

Weather fears for Olympic spectators

The Olympics are just over two weeks away, but there are real fears that the biggest sporting event in the World could become a complete washout.

The downpours, that have ruined the summer of 2012 so far, are beginnning to cast doubt over whether there's a plan in place to cope with the wet weather.

Fifty thousand people a day are expected to go to Hyde Park to watch the games on the Big Screen, but already one big concert has already been cancelled. Simon Harris looks at whether the weather will ruin the games.
