“I am honoured and excited to join such a beloved and iconic show,” Stause, 42, said.

“Coming from the world of soaps in the US, it’s back to my first love in the entertainment industry.

“They pitched me an idea for a character, and I was immediately excited to figure out a way to make it happen. Ramsay Street here I come!”

Before her estate agent days, Stause starred in a number of US soap operas including as Amanda Dillon in All My Children, Jordan Ridgeway in Days Of Our Lives, and Bethany Bryant in The Young And The Restless.

Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison said: “We are thrilled to welcome Chrishell to the cast of Neighbours.

“We created a character especially for her and we can’t wait for her to bring the storyline alive.

“Expect intrigue and surprises – and many implications for the residents of Ramsay Street.”

The soap opera follows the lives of residents in Erinsborough, a fictional suburb of Melbourne.

In 2022, the show was cancelled by Channel 5 after it failed to secure new funding.

A few months after what was meant to be it final episode, the long-running soap was revived by streaming site Amazon Freevee and production company Fremantle.

Neighbours is available exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the UK and the US.
