Actress and singer Alyce Platt made a return visit to the Neighbours set this week in a guest role opposite former co-star Alan Fletcher.

If Alyce looks familiar, you might recognise her as she starred in the  soap for a year in the mid-90sas medical student Jen Handley. However, this time she back playing a a prospective girlfriend for the newly single Karl Kennedy, whom she meets online.

'It was definitely déjà vu sitting in the make-up room, and to be playing opposite Fletch, who I worked with all those years ago, is hilarious,' jokes Alyce.

'Different character and very different time. The internet was a complete unknown when I was first on Neighbours.'

Alyce’s episodes will screen in Australia in October and mid-November here in the UK.
