“I was glued to our TV for the wedding of Kylie and Jason (Scott & Charlene) while cursing Mrs Mangle 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 ocassion for everyone.”

Amanda will film her scenes this week with them expected to air next spring.
