Jess Glynne has filmed a cameo on "Neighbours".

The 29-year-old singer made the most of her time in Australia, where she is currently on a promotional tour, by stopping by the set and shooting a scene with Ramsay Street stalwart Stefan Dennis - who plays Paul Robinson - and rising star Bonnie Anderson (Bea Nilsson) in a scene which will air in the coming months.

Jess said: "I've been watching "Neighbours" since I was a little kid, I grew up with up it, it was always there so it's a very surreal experience to be here on the set and be actually acting.

"My family are so, so excited I'm doing it, it's a huge moment for them.

"It's one of those things that I just couldn't ever imagine doing so I have really had a bucket list moment and to be able to sing on the show is amazing. It was also great to meet the cast."

Jess is not the only music act to have popped up in Erinsborough over the years.

Lily Allen appeared as herself on the show in 2009, as did The Wombats in the same year, and Emma Bunton, Sinitta, and Paula Abdul have all made cameos Down Under.

Two of the most famous singers to have appeared in "Neighbours" did so before they had launched music careers.

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan initially shot to fame on the show as lovebirds Charlene and Scott Robinson before taking to the stage.

What's more, Natalie Imbruglia appeared as Beth Brennan in "Neighbours" in the early 90s, and began a singing career after leaving the soap.
