Natalie Bassingthwaighte to reprise iconic Neighbours role

One of Neighbours most polarising characters is about to return to  Ramsay Street.

The Herald Sun has confirmed that Natalie Bassingthwaighte will reprise her role as Izzy Hoyland.who appeared from 2003 to 2007  creating one of the show’s all-time favorite triangles with Doctor Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher), and wife Susan (Jackie Woodburne).

“They [Neighbours] have been asking me since I left, I think, to come back on to the show,” she said  “It is not like I never wanted to come back, but I wanted to spread my wings and have some adventures and take on some different roles. “I have loved the character, I always have. I feel very fortunate to play such a juicy role like that. “For me, it was my big start and I am very grateful for that.”

While what brings Izzy back to the street remains under wraps Nat has confirmed she will continue to be just as polarising  “Izzy always likes to make an entrance and this was no exception,” she laughed. “It is full on and I think if you loved to hate Izzy before, you will love to hate her even more.”
Nat returned to set last Monday and will appear in a guest role from next year.
