Neighbours has revealed another big name who is returning next year for it’s 30th anniversary.
TV Week Logie award-winning actress and singer songwriter, Delta Goodrem, will reprise the role on Neighbours that launched her music career and propelled her to fame a decade ago for a limited run of three episodes.
Goodrem played much-loved character Nina Tucker, whose fictional musical journey mirrored Delta’s own real life rise to chart success. At the height of her popularity, Goodrem released her first single, Born To Try from her debut album, Innocent Eyes. Innocent Eyes catapulted to number one on the Australian charts. It entered the record books with multiplatinum ARIA Awards including 14 platinum awards, 29 weeks at #1, five #1 singles and selling over four million copies, making her a household name both here and in the UK.
While details surrounding Nina Tucker’s return to Erinsborough are under wraps, Neighbours’ Series Producer Jason Herbison hinted there is a musical theme to Goodrem’s appearance. It’s only natural that music would somehow be involved. Having Delta join us for this momentous occasion is the icing on the cake, we are delighted,” said Herbison.
Delta Goodrem joins previously announced cast members Ian Smith and Anne Charleston in return for the soaps milestone next year with more names to be announced over the coming months.
Neighbours airs 6:30 Weeknights on Eleven.
