He promised to post a picture and a story to go with it once a week, drawn from his own album of photos.

‘Sad to say Fremantle are officially resting the show after 37 solid years!,’ Matt posted.

‘I’ve got a lot to say about my life changing experience on the show and the incredible crew and cast I’ve been fortunate to work with.’

He said, ‘if not for you, for me to look back and remember the 7 years I’ve had here. Time to celebrate Neighbours.’

He posted the message with a photo of himself in character with co-star Takaya Honda, who plays his husband on the show, David. 

The actors featured in a landmark moment – the first same-sex marriage on Australian TV.

The Aaron and David characters tied the knot on the show in 2018, soon after gay marriage was legalised in Australia in 2017.

Magda Szubanski, an outspoken advocate for the gay, lesbian and transgender community, played the celebrant.

Meanwhile, Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison has given fresh hope that the iconic Aussie soap could one day return to screens, emphasising that the soap is ‘rested’ rather than fully cancelled.

News of its abrupt departure from UK’s Channel 5 sent the show into a tailspin, with network bosses in Australia scrambling to find a new international broadcasting deal to cover production costs or face the closure of Ramsay Street for good.
