Neighbours reveals first look at Amanda Holden filming as she joins soap

Neighbours has revealed a first look at Amanda Holden filming in London for her upcoming role in the Australian soap.

The actress and Britain’s Got Talent judge filmed scenes in Waterloo with Jemma Donovan, who plays Harlow Robinson in the long-running serial drama.

Amanda will portray Harlow’s aunt Harriet, who will meet up with her niece for the first time in years.

The duo will set about solving a family mystery centring on Harlow’s mother and Harriet’s late sister Prue, who was played by Denise van Outen.

‘My first day on set was such a fun and surreal experience,’ said Amanda. ‘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 passersby assumed that Jemma was my real daughter because we look quite similar!

‘I can’t wait to continue the journey of my character Harriet.’

The production is filming around London landmarks over the next week, and viewers will be able to see these scenes next Spring in the UK and Australia. 

It was first revealed last week that Amanda would be joining the cast of Neighbours for a guest stint.

She said at the time: ‘Like most people in the UK who were around in the late 80’s/early 90’s, I grew up watching Neighbours every single day of the week,’ said Amanda, discussing her casting in the Channel 5 soap. 

‘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 occasion for everyone.’
