Scott Robinson is arguably one of the most iconic characters in Australian TV soap Neighbours – but who was the actor who first played him and what happened to him?

This happened three times with Jason's on-screen sister Lucy Robinson, initially played by Kylie Flinker, then Sasha Close, and finally Melissa Bell. His memorable storylines included his on-screen wedding to TV fiancee Charlene Mitchell ( Kylie Minogue), which attracted a UK audience of 20 million. Touched fans tweeted their messages of condolence, with one writing: "Such sad news that #dariusperkins the original #ScottRobinson has died after battling cancer #RIP #Neighbours thoughts with all that knew him."
