DING dong! Ram­say Street is gear­ing up for a groundbreaking wed­ding!

Hunks Aaron (Matt Wil­son) and David (Takaya Honda) are set to get hitched.

And, as our first-look snaps show, they are both dap­per on their big day.

It will be the first same-sex wed­ding ever to air on an Aus­tralian TV show.

Matt said: “We are both ec­static to be part of this huge mo­ment in Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion and it stands alone as the high­light of my ca­reer.”

Takaya added: “It is an ab­so­lute priv­i­lege to be a part of what will be a his­toric mo­ment in Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion. “There have been so many parts of David’s story that have given me a great sense of pride.”

Neigh­bours bosses penned the sto­ry­line af­ter same-sex mar­riage was fi­nally le­galised in Aus­tralia last De­cem­ber. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Ja­son Her­bi­son said: “This is a story that we have been work­ing on for a long time and dur­ing that time our coun­try was trapped in a di­vi­sive ref­er­en­dum.” ¬ÊThe wed­ding will air in Septem­ber on the long-run­ning Chan­nel 5 soap, which is on week­days at 1.45pm and

5.30pm.
