McGranger told All About Soap: "I'd love to do one of your soaps - Emmerdale would be my first pick. I love the idea of being out in the country and wrapping up warm in a nice big coat.

"In Summer Bay you have to pretend it's hot all the time, so you're never allowed extra layers!"

However, McGranger also insisted that she has no plans to depart Home and Away in the foreseeable future.

She said: "It's a great show to work on - I'd be mad to leave. I get to come here [to the UK] and do panto, have regular work throughout the year and everyone's lovely."

McGranger added that Home and Away's producers may bring back characters from Irene's past this year.

She explained: "I had a good chat with the writers before I came over here, and they hinted we might be seeing some familiar faces from Irene's past coming back. Nothing's set in stone, but I'm hoping it's going to be some of her kids or grandchildren."

Home and Away returns to Channel 5 on Monday (January 7) at 1.15pm and 6pm.
