Home and Away's Lisa Gormley loves British soaps and became hooked on Eastenders when she lived in England.

Speaking to Inside Soap the actress, who plays Bianca Scott on the Australian soap, said, "I love the British soaps. When I lived in England, I became a real fan of Eastenders.

"It feels like a proper drama. I was watching this show for ages, just these two actors in a room with no music, working so well together. It was great, and then I realised that I was watching Eastenders and I was like, 'All right, I'm hooked'."

Gormley recently signed with a Hollywood acting agency, along with on-screen partner Dan Ewing aka Heath Braxton, which sparked rumours that she would be leaving Summer Bay and heading state-side but she explained that it won't be happening too soon, "We all have to spread our wings as wide as we can for after we've left and need to find other jobs.

"I'm really excited about it and hopefully one day I will be able to work more in the UK. Mind you, I'm planning to stay with Home and Away for a good while yet. I'm saving those pennies!"
