Hot on the heels of his former girlfriend, co-star and duet partner Kylie Minogue's 50th birthday, ex-Neighbours star Jason Donovan, who attended Kylie's recent star-studded birthday bash, himself reaches a half-century today.
Although his career isn't as high profile as his superstar ex's, the one-time teen heartthrob still commands a devoted following, selling out many of the dates on his recent Amazing Midlife Crisis tour of the UK.
To mark the occasion of Jason Donovan's 50th birthday, join us as we take a step back in time (sorry!) and revisit some of the key moments of his five decades to date.
His first TV role
Starting as he meant to go on, he appeared alongside Minogue in an episode of Skyways. They played brother and sister.
The punch heard around Australia
This scene—Kylie's first in Neighbours—never gets old.
The wedding watched around Australia... and the UK
Millions of Neighbours fans tuned in to see Scott and Charlene tie the knot.
Jason Donovan: pop star
Mullet? Tick. Stock Aitken Waterman pop gem? Tick. Daggy dancing? Tick.
"Especially For You"
Peak Jason and Kylie.
That time his guitar wasn't plugged in
Not that there was that much guitar in "Too Many Broken Hearts" to begin with...
Go, go, go Joseph
Goodbye TV, hello musical theatre.
He won his court case against The Face but suffered a backlash as a result. Not really a highlight, we concede.
Everybody loves a comeback
In 2003, he was back on TV in ABC's MDA.
Like a Virgin
Remember this mobile phone marketing campaign?
He's Going Nuts... Get Him Out of Here!
Jason went a bit loco during the British version of I'm A Celeb in 2006.
Jason gets the Piers Morgan treatment
In 2012, this candid TV interview made headlines.

Happy Birthday, Jason!
