Neighbours has responded after Natalie Imbruglia's shock about on-screen son Ned Willis.
In a recent BBC Radio Wales interview with Behnaz Akhgar, Natalie – who portrayed Beth Brennan between 1992 and 1994 – was told that her character's son (played by Ben Hall) is currently on Ramsay Street.
"I have a son? What!" she replied. "Oh my god, I didn't even know that. That is brilliant."
"Well, this is awkward [crying with laughter emoji]" the UK account tweeted. "It must be time for a visit!"
"Looks like Beth is due for a visit in Erinsborough?" the Australian account added.
Ned has been in Erinsborough since 2016. His recent storylines have mostly revolved around his emotional connection with the new Sheila Canning and subsequent relationship troubles with Yashvi Rebecchi.
Elsewhere in the same interview, Natalie said that she has "really fond memories" of her time on Neighbours.
"I learnt a lot," she said, "and it's the reason I'm here, because the success of that show got me to the UK and made me realise I wanted to live here and be here."
Natalie is currently promoting her next album Firebird, which is out in September.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and weekdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
