Neighbours spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Neighbours star Jackie Woodburne has discussed the reasons behind Finn Kelly's surprising return on Australian screens next week.

The villain, played by Rob Mills, will be back for a brief reappearance as Susan uses a visualisation technique to come to terms with the ordeal she endured. The technique is suggested by David Tanaka, as Susan watches Finn's video diaries recorded before his death as part of her research for Olivia Bell's book.

"David thinks that if Susan can visualise Finn, she can use that technique to ask him all the questions that have remained unanswered since his death," Woodburne explained to TV Week magazine.

"Susan felt she could never again let in anyone who might need help into her life in case she made the same mistake again.

"After exploring this with her 'imagined' Finn, she comes to understand that she's a nurturing person and just has to risk failure in order to enjoy rich and loving relationships."

While Susan initially keeps her visualisations a secret from her husband Karl, she eventually opens up to him when things start to get out of control.

Mills recently told The Herald Sun that he loved being back one year after his character drowned.

"It was weird to be back on set but also good to see their happy faces and I love working with the cast and crew," he said. "I'm just rapt they have continued filming the whole way through.

"I love that my character has never really left and it has haunted people."

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