Willis family to move in to Ramsay Street

Former Home and Away stars Kip Gamblin and Rebekah Elmaloglou will join Neighbours as part of a Ramsay Street family harbouring plenty of secrets.

Brad Willis is returning to Ramsay Street, and he's bringing his family with him!

Yes, that's right: Neighbours is continuing its focus on families with the announcement that a second clan will be introduced mid-year.

The Willis family follow the Turners, who made their Australian on-screen debut last night. Former Home and Away stars Kip Gamblin and Rebekah Elmaloglou have been cast as married couple Brad (a character familiar to long-time viewers of the show) and Terese, who will be joined on the street by their teenage son and daughter.

'We are moving our focus back to family units on Ramsay Street and the dynamics this offers in terms of storylines is fantastic,' says  Richard Jasek, Executive Producer of Neighbours. 'As viewers will find out shortly, the Turners are a family of secrets, and the unique back story of the Willis family is just as compelling.'

The show’s latest residents will start filming in two weeks and will debut on-air early June in Australia and three weeks later in the UK.
