From Fountain Lakes to Ramsay Street! Magda Szubanski has joined the cast of Neighbours.
The TV legend known for her much-loved role of Sharon Strzelecki on Kath & Kim will join Neighbours as the celebrant for the first legal same sex wedding on Australian television.
Szubanksi will play Jemima Davies-Smythe, who will marry David Tanaka and Aaron Brennan, but in a surprise twist Jemima ends up being connected to Ramsay Street royalty.
The role is a very fitting one for the comedic writer and actress, who campaigned relentlessly for the same-sex marriage ‘Yes’ vote.
Szubanski will appear on Neighbours in early September 2018.
In this week’s episode of WHO magazine’s TV podcast, Binge List, Matthew Denby, Clare Rigden and Gavin Scott discuss and debate true-crime drama American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, ABC series Mystery Road and Netflix food doco The Magic Pill. Plus, we ask To Binge Or Not To Binge The Good Fight and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and delve into Hidden Gem Dead Boss. Listen below, or on iTunes: http://po.st/syE3JF or OMNY: http://po.st/Bg4FlU
