Home and Away has cast former Neighbours star Harley Bonner as the new doctor in Summer Bay.

Harley will play Dr Logan Bennett, a trauma surgeon who arrives for a life-saving intervention and sticks around to see his patient's journey through from start to finish.

The actor is best known for his role as Josh Willis on Neighbours. His mother is actress Carla Bonner, who played Stephanie Scully for 19 years.

Speaking about his new role, Harley told Australian outlet 7 News: "It's been a while since I've had the privilege of working on a programme that's such a hallmark of Australian television.

"I'm happy to say I picked it back up a lot faster than expected. I really love working on shows like Home and Away, I love my character and I can't wait for Australia to meet him."

Harley described his character as "a bit of a nomad," adding that he is "capable, compassionate, intelligent and fun".

He added: "He's seen and done a lot in his life, some of which he tries his best to avoid getting into. I'm intrigued to find out what we’ll discover as time goes on.

"This is a brand new playing field for Logan. Summer Bay might just prove to be the change of pace and scenery he's been looking for, then again, fate may have other plans."

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
