Neighbours has announced a guest role for Amanda Holden as part of a new storyline in 2022 that will see Harlow Robinson visiting London.

Amanda will play Harriet, Harlow's aunt and the sister of the late Prue Wallace (who was played by Denise van Outen).

Executive producer Jason Herbison described the London scenes as "the launch of a huge new storyline for 2022", as Harlow and Harriet reunite to solve a family mystery relating to Prue.

"Like most people in the UK who were around in the late '80s, early '90s, I grew up watching Neighbours every single day of the week," she said in a statement.

"I was glued to our TV for the wedding of Kylie [Minogue] and Jason [Donovan], while cursing Mrs Mangel and praying that Mike and Jane would eventually get together! Not to mention all the other greats over the years.

"To now have the opportunity to be a part of such an iconic Australian show is simply fabulous. I can't wait to work with Jemma in London. This feels like a joyous occasion for everyone."

Jemma Donovan, who plays Harlow, said: "I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to film Neighbours in London. It's a brilliant opportunity to be able to film in my home city and do what I love for a show that I hold close to my heart.

"The producers have been wanting to do this for a while so it feels so surreal having it all come to life, not to mention working alongside Amanda. I'm beyond excited to create this relationship with our characters, dive into the storyline, and shoot all over London.

"It's going to be so much fun, and I hope the viewers enjoy it just as much as we do!"

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
