Neighbours: Xanthe ♥ Ben

No sooner has the dust – quite literally – settled on the Lassiter’s complex following the explosion in the boiler room, than Neighbours has developed its Soapland’s first ever Instagram drama – Xanthe Ben – following the show’s two teen tearaways: Xanthe Canning and Ben Kirk.

 The experimental drama comprises 20 x 15 second episodes that use Instagram’s video capability to create a ‘soap bubble’ – a self- contained story arc that follows the two Neighbours characters in the events leading up to and following the Lassiter’s explosion.xantheandben

Users of Instagram, will be able to access Xanthe Ben from the official Neighbours’ Instagram account – NeighboursTV – from Wednesday 6th April. Episodes will be posted daily until April 21st when the Instagram storyline catches up with its linear TV counterpart.

Neighbours airs Monday-Friday on Channel 5 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm.
