Actress and singer Melissa Bell is making a brief return to Ramsay Street to reprise her role as Lucy Robinson.

Lucy will be on screen again for two weeks, tying in with a storyline involving her brother Paul (Stefan Dennis), with her scenes expected to air in early May on Australian screens and June in Ireland.

Speaking about her return, Melissa said: "I’m very pleased that on-screen Stefan is exactly the same, always up to something which certainly makes for an interesting story, and off-screen he hasn’t changed either, just as much fun and lovely as ever."

Melissa joined Neighbours in 1991 as the third actress to play Lucy Robinson and starred on the series until 1995.

She returned in 2005 for the show’s 20th anniversary episode.
