Neighbours newcomer Jackson Gallagher has discussed whether he would return to Home and Away as Josh Barrett.

Jackson played Josh between 2013 and 2016, and had a dramatic exit from Summer Bay as he was given a huge prison sentence for killing Charlotte King.

In an interview with TV Week, the actor was asked about his thoughts on a potential comeback – and he didn't rule anything out.

"I like to work," he said. "If it lined up at the right time and it made sense, why not?"

Jackson added that he still keeps in touch with some of his former cast members including Philippa Northeast, who played Evie MacGuire.

"My friendship with Philippa Northeast came out of Home and Away, and she's still one of my closest friends today," he explained.

On Neighbours, Jackson plays Nathan, a love interest for Bea Nilsson.

Nathan and Bea get close after Levi Canning fails to make a move on Bea. But Nathan appears to have some connection with Levi.

Next week's UK episodes will see a blackmail twist in the Pierce Greyson and Dipi Rebecchi storyline as well as Scarlett Brady's exit scenes.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
