Stewart sibling Celia set to return to the Bay

It's been seven years since Celia Stewart was last seen in Summer Bay, having originally left the soap in 1990 and then made the latest of two brief returns for brother Alf's 60th birthday celebrations in 2005. (The episode was recently screened as part of 5*'s From Day One season, and is available to watch online here until 21 September).

Now, following weeks of speculation among viewers, Celia's alter ego Fiona Spence has confirmed that she's headed back to the soap once more, teasing in a chat with TV Week, 'I've been in and out, but I'm back there now doing some stuff.'

But that's not all: the magazine also reports a raft of other new arrivals, including Rachel Beck as physiotherapist Lisa, Razor star John Batchelor, as one of Harvey's close friends, and former E Street actor Richard Huggett in an as-yet-unknown role. Watch this space!
