Natalie Blair explains 'Neighbours' return

By
Neighbours Generic Natalie Blair as Carmella Cammeniti
Natalie Blair has revealed that she "couldn't resist" the chance to return to Neighbours for her former co-star Jane Hall's departure storyline.

The actress's character Carmella Cammeniti will soon reappear on Ramsay Street for two episodes, sparking the exit of Hall's alter ego Rebecca Robinson.

Carmella makes her comeback alongside partner Oliver Barnes (David Hoflin), who is determined to help mum Rebecca amid her ongoing blackmail problem with husband Paul.

In an interview with TV Week, Blair explained: "Oliver and Carmella - living overseas with little Chloe - return to help Rebecca in her time of need.

"They all have a history with Paul Robinson, and so they come back to protect Rebecca and watch out for her best interests."

Discussing why she agreed to the brief return, Blair added: "When we found out it was just for two episodes - and knowing it was for Jane Hall - that's what made us go, 'Oh it's for Jane! We can't not come back for Jane!' David and I are very, very close to her, so we couldn't resist."

Blair and Hoflin - currently based in Los Angeles - have also been a couple in real life for the past three years.
