When did Kylie hit the big time?

Kylie started acting when she was 11, and starred in a number of Australian soaps including Skyways, The Sullivans, and The Henderson Kids.

At 17, she left school and got a role playing tomboy car mechanic Charlene Mitchell in Neighbours which catapulted her to stardom in 1986.

Her on-screen relationship with Jason Donovan helped make Neighbours the highest rating TV programme in the UK at the time.
