'Neighbours' Sheila star Colette Mann: 'I'm one of the family now'

By
Neighbours newcomer Colette Mann is preparing for a busy year on screen as she settles into her regular role as Sheila Canning.

Sheila returned to UK screens this week following a short break and will become a permanent fixture in Erinsborough as she lands a new job at Charlie's in upcoming episodes.

Show bosses today (January 31) released a picture showing Mann looking over her lines during an early morning make-up call this week.

Speaking of her early start, Mann joked: "It comes with the territory - we all have to do it and the viewers are just lucky they see me like this and not how I look when I trudge in.

"I just wish the wonderful make-up team would set up in my bathroom at home permanently so I could just wake up and be transformed!"

Neighbours chiefs are promising "big stories" for Sheila as she becomes an important part of her grandson Kyle's life and also finds herself rowing with Paul Robinson.

Mann added: "Fighting with Paul Robinson is part of the initiation process of being on Neighbours - I really am one of the family now!"

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 in the UK, and weekdays at 6.30pm on Eleven in Australia. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
