Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours star Beth Buchanan has spoken to Digital Spy about Gemma Willis and Glen Donnelly's romantic history being revisited.

Gemma has returned to Erinsborough this month as part of her daughter Roxy's wedding storyline, which led to her coming face-to-face with her old flame Glen (Richard Huggett) for the first time in years.

The storyline continues next week as Gemma shares an obvious spark with Glen, which doesn't go unnoticed by a jealous Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou).

Speaking to Digital Spy about the storyline, Beth explained: "It was a surprise to Gemma when she returned and found Glen there. It was a little bit awkward, because they had to explain how they knew each other and how they were seeing each other a few years ago.

"But they soon get over that and it's fine. I think that, as Gemma is recently divorced, she's now feeling a bit ready for going on a date.

"Perhaps she is looking at Glen and thinking: 'Why not?' He gets a bit flirtatious.

"Although Terese is getting jealous, Gemma doesn't realise that. She has absolutely no idea that anything is going on between Glen and Terese."

As next week's episodes also see Glen share a romantic connection with Kyle's mum Sharon, viewers will have to stay tuned to see exactly how the story develops.

Meanwhile, although Gemma initially tried to oppose Roxy's wedding plans, the big episode ultimately sees her walk her daughter down the aisle now that they've resolved their differences.

Beth continued: "When Gemma met Kyle, I think she instantly really liked him. She can see that he's a genuinely lovely person and he cares about her daughter. She doesn't have any reservations about Roxy being involved with him at all.

"It was the wedding that she thought wasn't a good idea, because it was announced so suddenly and seemed to happen very quickly.

"But after speaking to Sheila, Gemma now wants Roxy to know she supports her as a mother and she'll be there for her whatever happens. She doesn't want to lose that connection so that's what changed her mind. I'd say Sheila's intervention was the turning point."

Reflecting on her latest return, she added: "It's just a few episodes. It is fun popping in and out, I have to say. It's always surprising not knowing what the story is going to be, and then popping in and having scenes with different people.

"I'm quite happy popping in and out, but it'd be great to have a bit more time on it as well."

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
