Scott McGregor says it’s ‘great’ to return to his Neighbours role, policeman Mark Brennan, after a stint in the US.

The 32-year-old started filming some scenes last week after returning to Neighbours briefly earlier this year.

“It was a relief to find out that I hadn’t died and made for a great comeback. I really enjoyed seeing the cast and crew again, and it’s great the timing worked so I could return for a bit longer this time,” he said.

“I have a big family here in Melbourne, five nephews and three nieces, so it’s always good to catch up with the younger McGregor kids and see how much they have grown,”

Reasons for his return were kept under wraps, although the show’s executive producer Richard Jasek hinted that his reappearance will involve a twist with ex Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer).

“Mark Brennan and Kate Ramsay are certainly one of the great love stories to emerge in recent years on Neighbours and while they will reconnect in some form, it is never that predictable,” teased Richard.

“There will be a twist that no one will see coming.”

Scott, who made his debut on Ramsay Street in August 2010, left in June 2011 and is based on Los Angeles, but he returned for a month in May. His latest appearance will be shown on UK TV from next March.
