Janet Street-Porter to guest star in Neighbours

Share article:

"Loose Women" panellist Janet Street-Porter is guest starring in "Neighbours".

The 72-year-old broadcaster is playing herself on the long-running Australian soap opera - which is aired on Channel 5 in the UK - and she can't wait for viewers to see her on Ramsay Street.

Revealing her appearance on the ITV daytime talk show on Wednesday (30.01.19), she said: "When I was in Australia I flew to Melbourne and I have a role in "Neighbours"! I get to play myself, I have more than one line. I'm not allowed to say any more, we are keeping it very, very secret. I spent the whole day on the sent. I went all round the set."

Before shooting her scenes, Janet was given a tour of the Erinsborough set by actor Stefan Dennis - who plays long term resident Paul Robinson.

She added: "Stefan showed me round. I had to do my lines, I smiled so much my face was aching."
