Craig McLachlan has hit out at the Australian soap for not allowing him to be part of the show's final ever episode. 

The Australian soap will air its last episode on Friday, 29 July at 21:00 on Channel 5 in what will be a one-hour special with the double-length episode called Neighbours: The Finale. 

McLachlan played heartthrob Henry Ramsay between 1987 and 1989 and he had an integral part in one of the most-viewed weddings in soap history. 

Craig played heartthrob Henry Ramsay for two years in the soap. 

However, McLachlan says he was not invited to partake or have any mention of his character in the programme's final scenes due to "cancel culture" due to sexual assault charges against him in 2020. 

The father-of-one was cleared of the seven charges of assault and indecent assault on four women when he was in an Australian production of The Rocky Horror Show in 2014. 

A spokeswoman for McLachlan said: "Henry’s dead mother is being reincarnated for the final episode — but cancel culture won’t allow her son Henry to appear or even be acknowledged. 

"What Craig and his partner have endured over the past four-and-a-half years — only to come out the other side and be confronted by, among other things, the attempted permanent erasing of his part in Neighbours history — is devastating.”
