Sophie Ellis-Bextor has landed a role in popular Australian soap Neighbours.
The 42-year-old will appear alongside Jemma Donovan’s character Harlow when she visits London to be reunited with her aunt, who will be played by Amanda Holden.
Speaking about her acting debut, the singer said: “Neighbours was a huge part of my school days. We all watched it, loved it, talked about it. It’s a joy to now be able to say I’ve been in it!”
“Thanks to everyone from the cast and crew for being so lovely. I loved it!” she added.
Jason Herbison, Neighbours’ Executive Producer, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with how filming has gone with the wonderful Amanda Holden and Jemma Donovan, to have Sophie Ellis-Bextor join us is the absolute icing on the cake and we can’t wait to share the storyline with our UK audience next year.”
