'Neighbours' star downplays lesbian kiss
Neighbours actress Margot Robbie has played down her character Donna Freedman's upcoming lesbian kiss as "not a big deal".

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Donna and new Ramsay Street resident Sunny (Hany Lee Choi) would lock lips in what producers called an "impulsive kiss".

"It's really not a big deal at all. It's not an actual gay storyline, it's just kind of an impulsive peck," Robbie told the Herald Sun. "It's just like another day on set really. I have to kiss other characters all the time and usually that's real kissing."

In March, rival Australian soap Home and Away came under attack from conservative and parent groups after it screened a lesbian romance between policewoman Charlie Buckton (Esther Anderson) and deckhand Joey Collins (Kate Bell). Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
