Doug's return storyline sees him pay a visit to Ramsay Street to see his son Brad, who is now played by Kip Gamblin.

In a statement, Donovan said today (March 14): "It is very exciting to be coming back as the same character after all these years and I always loved the Doug Willis character.

"And I love the fact that he is a builder and he is encouraging his young grandson [Josh] to have a trade and be proud of what you do - I think that's very important."
