‘Everyone working on the soap was determined that Neighbours would end on a real high and when they reached out to Margot she said ”yes” straight away,’ a source told The Sun.
‘There was no way she wasn’t going to be a part of the historic big finale as she’s always spoken so fondly about her time on the soap and how it helped to launch her movie career.
‘Sadly, she couldn’t get to Australia for filming but recorded a special clip that will be shown in the big finale.’

Margot instead sent 37 bottles of champagne to the set – one for each year that the show has been in on television.
The show’s executive producer Jason Herbison announced Robbie had sent a gift of pricey bubbles.
The cast raised a toast following the end of filming on the show’s final ever day of production.

Alan Fletcher, April Rose Pengilly and Emerald Chan were among the cast to thank Robbie on Instagram for the thoughtful gift.
Robbie shot to fame in the Australian soap playing aspiring fashion designer Donna Freedman, before swapping Melbourne for Hollywood.
She previously credited the show and said it was ‘brilliant training’ for her Hollywood career and admitted that she could never learn lines at the speed she used to during her soap days.

But she cannot believe how quickly she used to get through her scripts during her time in the serial drama.
She said: ‘I always said after walking off a soap everything would be easy after that.’
‘It was a brilliant training ground. I used to sit down with 60 pages in my lap in a morning and just fly through it, read it once. Got it. I don’t think I could do that now.’

The Birds of Prey star is also grateful for working on a soap because that time has made her more ‘aware’ of other departments when she is on a movie or a TV set.
She said: ‘I think the biggest thing about working on a soap and working with a multi-camera scenario was being so aware of every other department, and working within the bigger machine.’
The finale will air in both Australia and the United Kingdom on Friday.
