Neighbours has announced that presenter and actress Denise Van Outen is joining the cast for a guest role.
The TV personality is currently filming scenes for the Aussie soap in London, alongside stars Stefan Dennis and Rebekah Elmaloglou.
And joining Denise is Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Arnold, who will also be making his debut on the show.
Denise has been cast as Prue Wallace, the enigmatic mother of Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan), and her upcoming scenes are said to be part of a major story-line that will unfold later in the year.
Speaking about her guest role, Denise shared her excitement to be joining the legendary soap.
“I am thrilled to be joining the cast of one the world’s most iconic shows, Neighbours,” she said. “To be asked is a privilege and I am very excited to get to work on a really fun story-line first in London and then heading over to Melbourne. “I can’t say too much just yet but my character Prue is heading to Ramsay Street to stir things up and I can’t wait!”
GMB’s Richard will play Graham, a man who’s said to have unhealthy influence over Denise’s character Prue, but there are no further details on how he will fit in the new story-line.
Neighbours favorite Stefan Dennis also shared a few words about working with Denise and Richard, saying: “We love the Brits and being in this incredible city! Getting the chance to work with Denise and Richard is a real treat.”
