Neighbours gripped its fans in the UK as its late-night series Endgame (and the aftermath) played out on screens, and now we've been given an idea of how Finn Kelly's dark plot went down with Australian audiences too.

To mark the show's 35th anniversary earlier this month, the soap moved away from Ramsay Street and onto a deserted island to celebrate Elly Conway's (Jodi Anasta) birthday, where Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) quickly set about on his reign of terror.

And, on a recent episode of Gogglebox Australia, the show's TV-watching families and friendship groups got a chance to catch up on the all the late-night happenings, from Finn pushing Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson) into a mine shaft, to his calculated hook up with Harry Sinclair (Paul Dawber) and his shock attack on Neighbours stalwart Toadie (Ryan Moloney) too.

And with the Endgame episodes providing more violence, nudity and villainous behaviour than most casual Neighbours viewers are typically used to, the reaction to these scenes was clear.

"This never happened in Ramsay Street!" Gogglebox-er Isabella Silbury noted.

"There's murder, there's amnesia..." Tim summed up, while a different family noted: "It's like Shakespeare, isn't it?

Later still, while watching Finn attack Toadie, Jad noted: "That's not how you treat your neighbours."

Meanwhile, back in Neighbours, Finn's dark plot came to an abrupt end earlier this week after a final confrontation with Susan Kennedy, which ended with Finn falling and accidentally drowning in a shallow grave.

Speaking about his exit, actor Rob Mills said it was an "emotional" scene, and added that he'd miss working on the soap.

"I'll miss the family. It really is a family at Neighbours," he said.

"People talk about the machine that it is but not only is it a machine, it's like a family. It's a coming together of great minds, great characters, and great people. I'll miss the laughs and the high drama every day."

Neighbours currently airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
