'Neighbours' Luke Pegler finishes filming Dane role

By
Neighbours star Luke Pegler has finished filming his short guest stint on the soap.

The actor was rushed into the show last month to cover the absence of regular cast member Christopher Milligan, who took time off after injuring himself while playing football. Show bosses cast Pegler as Dane Canning, the cousin of Milligan's character Kyle.

Milligan returned to filming at the start of last week and Pegler shot his final scenes earlier today, Channel 5 has confirmed.

In a statement, Pegler revealed that he is now keen to get rid of the blonde highlights that were put into his hair for the role of Dane.

Pegler joked: "They definitely scream, 'Look at me, dude!' which is not quite the attention I'm after. First appointment when I return home will be to the hairdresser."

Milligan, meanwhile, will continue to use crutches for the next two weeks. He will then be fitted with a protective boot which he must wear for around two or three months.

"It's great to be back after a month of laying on the couch. There are only so many DVDs you can watch," Milligan said. "You won't see Jade and Kyle doing a lot of dancing for a while!"
