Neighbours is bringing back a blast from the past as Karl Kennedy's old flame Olivia Bell will be seen in Erinsborough again.

Alyce Platt last played Olivia back in 2012, more than seven years ago. Her guest return will air in Australia next week.

Karl (Alan Fletcher) and Olivia will be seen chatting after crossing paths with each other at The Waterhole.

Karl and Susan's marriage is in trouble at the moment after Karl admitted that he partially blames Susan for Finn Kelly's murderous actions, which claimed the lives of Gary Canning and Prue Wallace.

So what will Olivia's return mean for Karl and Susan?

Olivia will be seen on Wednesday, May 6 in Australia, but with the UK falling behind due to scheduling changes, Channel 5 viewers will have to wait until June to see what happens.

In 2012, Olivia was introduced as a potential love interest for Karl when they met through a dating website. The pair had two dates before Olivia declined a third.

Alyce told The Courier in February that she was enjoying being back on set.

"I stepped back into a bit of acting as well. I've gone back to Ramsay Street," she explained. "I'm doing a little bit on Neighbours at the moment, which is wonderful. I'm enjoying it a lot, actually."

And Olivia isn't the only character making a comeback. Actress Morgana O'Reilly is returning for the first time since 2015, as her character Naomi Canning pays Sheila a visit in the aftermath of Gary's death.

Neighbours currently airs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and weekdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
