Neighbours. Everybody needs good neighbours, right?

With a little understanding. You could find the perfect blennnnnnnnnd.

Anyway, to celebrate that lovely Australian man Ryan Maloney doing so well in the Celebrity Big Brother house, we've decided now is a good time to check out what all our other favourite Neighbours stars are getting up to these day.

From Harold Bishop's new job as an assassin (that's a lie) to Dr Karl Kennedy's most recent reinvention as a rock star (not a lie).

Check it out.

Ian played Ramsay Street’s resident tuba-playing do-gooder until May 2011, when he claims he was forced out of the show by ‘local yobs’ who made fun of him. Sadface.

Jansen (right) is now into craft beer (we assume that’s the Aussie term for real ale). Not only that, he’s a photographer and has been snapping away since getting a diploma in photography studies eight years ago. According to his website, he has ‘a very versatile style and portfolio always thinking and acting ahead of the pack’. Future-y.

After leaving Neighbours, Andrew (left) became a proper actor, moved to Perth and studied acting. Rumours that he died in a pole vaulting accident weren’t true. He’s still very much alive.

She’s Kristian Schmid’s (who played Todd in Neighbours) cousin, fact fans, and is studying Archaeology at UCLA. Swot. She also played a barwoman in the film of the Incredible Hulk, and dated Hollywood actor William Hurt, who was 26 years older than her.

After being killed off by a horse, Libby’s dead husband became a landscape photographer. And then featured in an advert for Australian hair loss clinic Ashley & Martin posing as a hair loss consultant, and also admitted he experienced hair loss. To think, he had hair of the lion variety back in the day. Baldness can happen to everyone, folks.

Alan’s been in Neighbours since 1994, but in his spare time he’s actually a bit of a rock star, and plays in a band called the X Rays. And once did a gig in a Walkabout pub in London. Glam.

Libby Kennedy aka Kym Valentine, 32

Kym has a nine-year-old daughter Millana Valentine-Tolli, and is still in Neighbours. She’s been there since 1992. Crikey.

Jackie’s been in the show for almost 20 years. And she’s actually Northern Irish (well, she was born there). A rumour she was covered in tattoos was perpetuated for years, but she dispelled the reports in 2009. We can’t pretend we’re not disappointed.

Shane Connor aka Joe Scully, 53

Shane had a drug habit, got sacked from Neighbours, then sued them for $230000 and won, and then did some pantomime in the UK.

Carla (right) is best friends with Kym (Libby) in actual real life. And has two sons, and dates a personal trainer. Fit.

He’s Neighbours’ longest running cast member, having been in the show for 25 years. Gulp. Tom admitted last year he wanted a smaller head, as he felt his was quite large.

Adelaide (second from the right) won her place in Neighbours in Dolly magazine, and last year joined the cast of Teen Wolf in the recurring role of Cora.

After leaving the show, Holly became a pop star, got a number one with Kiss Kiss and released the pop masterpiece that was State Of Mind.
Then she did some adverts for reverse-charge phone company (does anyone actually do that anymore?)1800 Reverse, then married property developer and all round very rich man, Nick Candy in 2012.

Dan left Neighbours 2002, appeared in The Bill, and then became the Dermot O’Leary of Australian X Factor. Now he co-hosts Dancing With The Stars with Mel B in Australia. Woo. Oh and in other fascinating facts, he did an ironman in 2009 (one of those ridiculous massive triathlon things where you swim, run and cycle the distance to the moon or something like that) and came top of his category. Get him.

Jonathan appeared in various episodes of BBC3’s most annoying TV programme of all time, Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, and in 2010 started directing episodes of Neighbours – and was nominated for a fancy award for best direction in a TV drama serial in 2012. Fancy.

Anne moved to Ireland, joined the cast of Emmerdale (2006), Crossroads, Holby City, and then, the piece de resistance of all celeb career highlights, had cosmetic surgery performed on her neck live on TV on Channel 5’s Cosmetic Surgery Live in 2005.
