We've known for a year that Neighbours would be filming scenes at Sydney's legendary LGBTQ+ event, the Mardi Gras parade, and now we're finally getting to see them very soon.

In the storyline, David and Aaron (the first same-sex couple to be married in an Australian TV drama) head to Sydney to enjoy the festivities.

Thanks to Aaron's celebrity connections from his dancer days, in the Friday, February 28 episode, they bump into Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters and RuPaul's Drag Race star Courtney Act. What an afternoon!

But it can't all be good news for the duo.

Spoiler pictures also show that the couple also bump into Aaron's ex-stalker Mick Allsop, which means things could be set to get a little awkward.

Neighbours usually films scenes two to three months in advance, but these scenes were actually filmed back in March. They'll be airing next week to coincide with this year's Mardi Gras ceremony.

Courtney Act confirmed her appearance on the soap last year and seemed pretty excited about her new role.

She tweeted: "I’M GONNA BE ON NEIGHBOURS!!! Right, that's it, I’m done, I’m hanging up my wig. I’ve reached Peak ‘Straya. The mythical Fair Go. Advance Australia Fairy!"

Neighbours airs these scenes on Friday, February 28 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
