Following weeks of discussion among fans, Fiona Spence has spoken for the first time about her return to the soap. The actress is currently back on set to reprise her role as Alf's sister Celia Stewart, who was last seen in 2005.
Spence told TV Week: "I've been in and out, but I'm back there now doing some stuff."
The magazine has also confirmed that former Hey Dad…! actress Rachael Beck is to play a physiotherapist named Lisa, who will be helping Dexter Walker with his recovery following the recent car crash on Australian screens.
Meanwhile, Sea Patrol and Underbelly: Razor star John Batchelor will appear as one of Harvey Ryan's best friends, and ex-E Street actor Richard Huggett will be popping up in an as-yet-unknown role.
