The 50 year old is filming scenes for the Aussie soap in London as she takes on the role Jemma Donovan's auntie, who is the daughter of Neighbour's legend Jason Donovan.

One commented: "Can't wait to see you on Neighbours," as another said: "Omg I’m absolutely buzzing for this!"

The Sun reported that Amanda said: "Like most people in the UK who were around in the late Eighties and early Nineties, I grew up watching Neighbours every single day.

"I was glued to our TV for the wedding of Scott and Charlene, while cursing Mrs Mangel and praying Mike and Jane would eventually get together."

Amanda is filming scenes around London over the next week, which will air on Channel 5 in the spring time.

She is among other British celebrities who have been in the show including her fellow BGT judge David Walliams who appeared on the show in 2007 alongside his Little Britain co-star Matt Lucas.

Others British stars who have appeared in the soap include Michael Parkinson, Julian Clary, Janet Street-Porter, Emma Bunton, Neil Morrissey, Sinitta, and Jess Glynne.

His daughter Jemma plays Harlow Robinson who comes to the UK to solve a mystery about her mother who passed away, Prue, who was played by Denise van Outen.

Amanda also posted another photo of her while she was on set filming for the show.

She was pictured alongside the River Thames in a baby blue long coat and jeans while holding a sign that read 'Ramsay Street'.
