Neighbours has dropped another nifty Easter egg to mark its 35th anniversary, this time nodding to one of its most iconic stars.

As the show marks the big milestone this week, today's (March 20) daytime episode saw classic characters Jane Harris and Des Clarke tie the knot.

And as their wedding took place, Kylie Minogue's 'Golden' played in the background – giving us a nod back to Kylie's time on the soap.

The star famously played Charlene Robinson on the soap between 1986 and 1988 before becoming a global pop icon.

One of the soap's most memorable moments was Charlene's wedding to Scott Robinson (Jason Donovan), so, of course, hearing Kylie now play during another wedding seems appropriate.

Fans were naturally delighted by the reference, one writing on Twitter: "Did they just play Kylie at Jane’s wedding? That’s perfect, really, Paul and Des and Jane and Charlene in the background…".

Another added: "Kylie's 'Golden' playing on #Neighbours made this special anniversary week perfect!"

Neighbours also made a reference to another alumni-turned-pop star earlier this week.

That time, Ned Willis suggested that Paige Smith play classic pop hit 'Torn' at her own wedding to Mark Brennan.

Ned then tells a confused Yashvi Rebecchi: "My mum used to sing it all the time," a reference to on-screen mother Beth Brennan, who was played by 'Torn' singer Natalie Imbruglia.

There are plenty more Easter eggs you can dive into right here.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
