Denise Drysdale Set To Join The Cast Of Neighbours

She announced the amazing news on Studio 10.

Two-time Gold Logie winner Denise Drysdale is set to add another role to her ever-growing list of achievements, and this time around she’ll be hitting up Ramsay street for a guest role on Neighbours!

Announcing the fabulous news on Studio 10 yesterday, Drysdale -- known as Ding Dong -- revealed that she was currently on the Neighbours set shooting for the episode, which is set to air around October.

"It’s a little bit hard, but I’m very excited about it!” she told Studio 10. “Of course, Neighbours has been around for years so to be finally having a part of it is such an honour,” she added.

We’re dying to know in what capacity Drysdale will be appearing on the long-running series, but for now, her lips are sealed, as she exclaimed, “I can’t! That would give away everything, so you’ll just have to watch!”

Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison added, "Denise is an extraordinary performer and Neighbours is privileged to have her join us to play quite an eccentric character who will have viewers perplexed with her antics."

It follows the news that Aussie icon Magda Szubanski would also be appearing on the soap to officiate the series' first-ever same-sex wedding.

"I thought it was just one of the best offers I've had for a long time", she said laughing. "I thought it was both hilarious and historic so when they asked me I just jumped at it. I think it's gold," she previously told Studio 10. 

We can’t wait!
