Former Neighbours star Natalie Imbruglia was surprised to learn about on-screen son Ned Willis.

The singer portrayed Beth Brennan in the Ramsay Street soap between 1992 and 1994. The character eventually had a son with Brad Willis named Ned, who ended up moving to Erinsborough in 2016 and is now played by Ben Hall.

During an interview with Behnaz Akhgar on BBC Radio Wales yesterday (June 22), Natalie was asked whether she watches the show now and again and see how her son is doing.

"I have a son? What?" she replied with shock. "Oh my god. Oh my god, I didn't even know that. That is brilliant.

"Oh my god, that's hysterical. Do you know, because when I do watch it, I get freaked – it's like other people are in my house. I haven't watched it in a long time, but thank you for telling me I have a son on telly."

Natalie also said she has "really fond memories" of her time on Neighbours, saying that she wouldn't be where she is now without the Australian soap.

"I have a lot of great friendships from that time, and it was a really good introduction to the industry," she explained.

"I learnt a lot, and it's the reason I'm here, because the success of that show got me to the UK and made me realise I wanted to live here and be here."

Ned's current storyline at UK pace sees his relationship with Yashvi Rebecchi in trouble after she discovers the emotional connection he had with the new Sheila Canning.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and weekdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
