DENISE van Outen will appear as a guest star in Neighbours as filming begins in London.
The actress today announced she will play Prue Wallace in the Australian soap in what's set to be one of the biggest storylines of the year.
This week actors Stefan Dennis (Paul Robinson) and Rebekah Elmaloglou (Terese Willis) flew overseas to the capital to shoot the special episode.
Denise will star as Harlow Robinson's mum, played by actress Jemma Donovan, who comes face to face with Paul in London.
Denise said: “I am thrilled to be joining the cast of one the world’s most iconic shows, Neighbours.
“To be asked is a privilege and I am very excited to get to work on a really fun storyline first in London and then heading over to Melbourne.
“I can't say too much just yet but my character Prue is heading to Ramsay Street to stir things up and I can't wait!”
Soon, the 45-year-old will jet off to Australia to carry on filming with the cast in the dramatic plot.
Denise's character Prue will star on-screen with her pal Graham – who will be played by Good Morning Britain star Richard Arnold.
He's trying his hand at acting alongside Denis as graham, who he describes as a "sinister chap exerting a dark influence over Denise's character."
He joked: "Basically, me and Den on a night out."
