Home and Away's Lisa Gormley has praised EastEnders for its 'proper' drama

Gormley told Inside Soap: "I love the British soaps. When I lived in England, I became a real fan of EastEnders.

"It feels like a proper drama. I was watching this show for ages, just these two actors in a room with no music, working so well together.

"It was great, and then I realised that I was watching EastEnders and I was like 'All right, I'm hooked!"

"We all have to spread our wings as wide as we can for after we've left and need to find other jobs," she explained. "I'm really excited about it, and hopefully one day I will be able to work more in the UK.

"Mind you, I'm planning to stay with Home and Away for a good while yet. I'm saving those pennies!"
