Neighbours break for Kyle star Chris

The Neighbours writers have swung into action after news of star Chris Milligan's footy injury.

Neighbours break for Kyle star Chris

In the last three years we've seen him make the move from bad lad to budding entrepreneur, and as Erinsborough's most eligible bachelor he's still managing to keep housemate Jade on her toes and us glued to our screens: it's hard to imagine Ramsay Street without Kyle Canning.

But that's just what the Neighbours writers were forced to do yesterday when they heard that star Chris Milligan, who plays the resident tradie, had snapped an Achilles tendon playing football and would be out of the show for at least five weeks to recuperate.

'We’ve rewritten some scenes which explain Kyle’s absence, and as a former nurse, I’ll be monitoring his rehabilitation,' jokes the soap's executive producer Susan Bower. 'It’s part of the business. Accidents and sickness happen. You just move to Plan B very quickly.'

Chris is due to have surgery in the next 24 hours and is expected to be in a wheelchair for the next few weeks. Being the good mate that he is, co-star Jordan Smith (Andrew Robinson) is said to have been clearing a pathway at their share house ready for Chris's temporary mode of transport!

Get well soon, Chris!

    @JB, if he comes back, they will put him back n the character list. Here's hoping he does return soon.

    I notice they've deleted Mark from the character list now, which isn't promising!

    @Simran & Love20, he better return, Neighbours hasn't been the same since he left. Miss all the scenes between Mark ,Kate, Jade and Kyle, they are so fun to watch. also miss the Lucas and Mark friendship. Scott is so gorgeous. If you're on twitter you can tweet Scott. http://twitter.com/#!/ScottDMcGregor

    Totally agree with you Samantha. Anyway, let's get back to the subject of the news item. I wish Chris a speedy recovery and hope he's back on his feet soon. He and Kyle are going to be missed.

    why do people constantly go on about mark & kate getting back together. bridgette & declan were a better match and people managed to get over them. give it a rest already. i'm fed up reading the same thing over & over again. if you miss him that much why don't you make a website for him and chat on there instead of doing everyones head in!!

    Mate, Mark is NOT dead, it's all just a cover up for the witness protection. Hopefully Scott will be back very soon.

    @Kate, there is still a lot more to come from the storyline. The return of Supt. Duncan Hayes and in a few weeks in Australia, Kate gets some good news. The official Neighbours FB page said there is plenty of intrigue to come from the Mark storyline. So lota of trickery, plots, scheming to come.

    it would be the perfect oppatunity 2 bring scott back we need him back 2 lighten neighbours up again...get well soon chris

    It would definitely be the perfect opportunity to bring Scott McGregor back.

  • GillianH81

    Scott confimred in a video interview the door has been left open for him to return and he hasn't been killed off. Don't belive everything you read in magazines. Scott is hardly going to come out and say that Mark's death is a cover, as it will spoil the storyline.

    Except Gillian doesn't really know this and is just guessing. The actor confirmed Mark is dead. Hope Chris gets better soon (and it really wouldn't be perfect opportunity to bring Scott back).

    @Dannibabes, Mark's not really dead. His death is only a cover up for the witness protection to keep him safe to stop his enemies going after him

    This is the perfect opportunity to bring Scott McGregor (Mark) back. We want Mark and Kate back together. We need some decent eye candy. Don't like the new doctor Rhys Lawson. Hope Chris gets better soon and is back on Neighbours ASAP.
