Despite literally starting with a nightmare Neighbours has become an afternoon staple for viewers in Australia and the UK (as well as Ireland and New Zealand).

Australians viewers got their first glimpse of the show in 1985 - it opened with one of its characters Danny Ramsay awakening from a bad dream - and a year later the show was in the UK.

Along the way it made stars of actors including Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue and around 20 million people tuned in to watch their characters, Scott and Charlene, tie the knot in 1988.

It was so popular with fans that the wedding theme - Suddenly by Angry Anderson - was a top three hit later that year.

And that was not the only hit single that can trace its roots back to Ramsay Street with Minogue, Donovan, Delta Goodrem, Natalie Imbruglia and Holly Valance all having chart careers.

It has even produced some acclaimed acting talent with Guy Pearce and Margot Robbie getting their big breaks on the soap.

Veterans of the show - which moved to Channel 5 in 2008 - including Mark Little, Anne Charleston and Stefan Dennis will join fans at a special 30th birthday party today at the Cafe de Paris in central London.
