JASON Donovan looks different from his days on Neighbours as he enjoys a night out in London after the soap was cancelled.
The actor, 53, who played Scott Robinson on the Aussie soap looked stylish in an all-black ensemble at a party in Notting Hill.
Jason posed with Sophie Vanacore at her husband, Piers Adam’s birthday party at the Walmer Castle.
He rocked a waist-length black leather jacket with black jeans as he was spotted out for one of the first times since the news of Neighbours axing was announced.
We revealed last month that the Aussie soap – which has been on Channel 5 since 2008 – is to be axed after the network was unable to reach a deal with producers Fremantle.
Neighbours bosses are planning to reunite superstars Kylie Minogue and Jason for the axed soap’s farewell.
Jason told show execs that he is flying to Melbourne in April and could potentially film a dramatic comeback.
But he wants to be joined by pop princess Kylie, 53, who played his wife Charlene.
A source confirmed bosses are doing everything they can to make it happen.
UK Times on Sunday revealed Ian Smith, 83, has agreed to return as Harold Bishop and will start filming next month.
Soap bosses are also in contact with Hollywood superstar Guy Pearce, 54, who played Mike Young.
Annie Jones, 55, who played his love interest Jane Harris in the 1980s, returned in 2018.
A source said: “One thing’s for sure, Neighbours is going out with a bang.
“It’s been an emotional week for everyone.
“There have been a lot of tears but the cast and crew are more determined than ever to finish on a real high.”
They added: “Bosses have spoken to Jason who has agreed in theory to return.
“Kylie has always been a huge supporter of the show — they’re just waiting to hear back.”
In 1988 nearly 20 million in the UK watched Scott marry Charlene.
Jason and Kylie also dated, and both launched pop careers, bagging a No1 with Especially For You.
