Spoiler alert: Find out which Neighbours character will meet their end

In a move that has taken many fans by surprise, the long-running Australian soap opera Neighbours confirmed that a cherished character will soon be leaving Ramsay Street for good.

The show, which has been a staple of Australian television since its debut in 1985, is known for its gripping storylines and the occasional heart-wrenching departure of its characters.

This time, it's the iconic Rosemary Daniels who will be saying her final goodbye.

Rosemary, played by the late Joy Chambers, first graced the screens in 1986 and became a fixture in the lives of the residents of Erinsborough until her last appearance in 2010.

Chambers' passing in September at the age of 76 has led the show's writers to craft an off-screen death for her character.

The news of Rosemary's demise will be revealed in next week's episodes, sending shockwaves through the fictional suburb and particularly affecting her nephew, Paul Robinson, who plans to travel to New York to be with family.

Joy Chambers' legacy extends far beyond her role in Neighbours.

She was a Logie award-winning actress, a best-selling author, a poet, and a philanthropist.

Alongside her husband, she helped build one of the world's largest independent production companies.

Her family's statement at the time of her death highlighted her remarkable achievements and the indelible mark she left on the entertainment industry.

The announcement of Rosemary's death comes amidst a tumultuous time on Ramsay Street, with Chelsea Murphy making a hasty exit after her deceptions were exposed by Krista.

Meanwhile, Krista faces her own challenges with ex-boyfriend Leo, who, despite their past, intervenes to protect her from a menacing drug dealer named Shannon.

In other Neighbours news, a current storyline has stirred controversy among the show's dedicated fanbase.

Karl Kennedy, portrayed by Alan Fletcher, has been depicted struggling with a rather embarrassing issue while indulging in his newfound passion for cycling.

The plot, which seems to draw inspiration from the infamous 'poo jogger' incident that captivated Australia in 2018, has Karl unable to control his bowels during his rides, much to the dismay of the local community.

The graphic nature of the storyline has prompted a wave of criticism from viewers, with some taking to social media to express their distaste.

The official Neighbours social media account's clip of Karl preparing for another 'drop-off' was met with comments such as, 'This is one of the very worst storylines Neighbours has ever run. Just disgusting,' and 'This was funny the first time, but just gross now.'
