Speaking about the amazing opportunity, the Heart Breakfast presenter said: “My first day on set was such a fun and surreal experience. If I’d told my 12/13 year-old self I would one-day appear in Neighbours I’d have never believed it! So many people were beeping in their cars and passers-by assumed that Jemma was my real daughter because we look quite similar! I can’t wait to continue the journey of my character Harriet."
Of course, Amanda had plenty of acting experience before becoming a TV personality, and previously starred in Wild at Heart, Cutting It and Thoroughly Modern Millie. Although we can’t wait to see the mum-of-two in her exciting new role, we all have a while to wait, as the scenes between Amanda and her co-star, Jemma Donovan, will air next Spring in the UK and Australia – so be sure to set a reminder!
