Melissa Bell returns to Neighbours

Neighbours’ Lucy Robinson will sort out the disaster that big brother Paul has been making of the family business when she returns to Ramsay Street.

Melissa Bell is back on the Neighbours set as Lucy, who has come to take control of the Lassiters empire, which bad boy Paul has been running into the ground.

The 40-year-old actress revealed: “Lucy has definitely grown up and she is now running Lassiters’ parent company and she doesn’t suffer fools including Paul.”

Melissa first joined the soap in 1991 as the third actress to play Lucy. She left 17 years ago and has gone on to become a fashion designer.

The mother-of-four made a brief appearance on the soap earlier this year, and she is proudly showing off a new slender figure after losing over three-and-a-half stone in six months.

Melissa will feature on Neighbours during the show’s finale week this year in Australia, airing on Channel 5 in the UK in January 2014.
