    Are we talking the Character of Betty Wilson or the person who played her? Person who played her is doing life insurance commercials recently.

    remember being in London when the first Gulf War was about to start and one TV show showed 24/7 News with the exception of Neighbours twice a day.

    The Poms loved it , to this day I have never watched a episode.
    Oh dear ............ if this was QI, the great show hosted by Stephen Fry (and Dane Sandi Toksvig) the horn would be blaring loudly!

    No, the answer is not Neighbours, you have fallen for my clever little trap!
    We're goin' to need a bigger boat...

    I think Julie McGregor lasted the whole series whereas other characters didnt. Probably not the answer but its the best i can come up with.

    Try not use sites like IMDB and Wikipedia to find the answers!

    TV Trivia 1
    Kylie Minogue got her "big break" in which iconic Australian TV series, that aired a half hour nightly on weekdays?
    Kylie got her big break in "The Sullivans". She was 8 years old, and appeared in 8 consecutive episodes. After a couple of one off appearances in "Skyways" and "Zoo Family", she made 6 episodes of "Fame And Misfortune", before going on to become Charlene in 334 episodes of "Neighbours" the same year.

    Betty Wilson was Julie McGregor's character in "Hey Dad". Unbelievably, "Hey Dad" held the record for the longest running sitcom on tv (in the western world, I'm not sure about asia) for 16 years (from 1994 until 2010), and still sits 2nd on the list of longest running sitcoms to the British show "The Last Of The Summer Wine". Peter Sallis' character Clegg appeared in all 295 episodes of "The Last Of The Summer Wine", making him the most recurring character in all sitcoms. Betty Wilson appeared in all 293 episodes of "Hey Dad", which makes her the most recurring female character in sitcom history!
