Hot off the news of Hollywood star Chrishell Stause joining Aussie soap Neighbours as a guest star, the show has another exciting announcement: Stephanie McIntosh will be reprising her role as Sky Mangel and returning to Ramsay Street to drop by for a visit and reunite with her on-screen grandfather Harold Bishop (Ian Smith).

Stephanie, who is OG Neighbours star Jason Donovan's half-sister, rose to fame as Sky in the early '00s before going on to have a music career (who could forget her 2006 banger 'Mistake?') and then departing Neighbours in 2007. She returned for a brief appearance in 2015 as a part of the show's 30th anniversary and again in 2020 and 2022.

It's not been confirmed yet when Stephanie will be back on our screens, but fans are already anticipating the return of one of their fave characters.

"Amazing news!!! I remember the scene where her and Boyd kissed for the first time and it was actually her first kiss in real life!" one person said. "Sky is always my fav. So excited. Cannot wait," another person said.


"I love when characters like this pop back even when they're brief visits, it just adds that little touch of realism and makes you feel all warm and cosy inside haha," another person said. "Neighbours really is just like your extended family when you're a fan like me who has watched since the start. Thank you for bringing Sky back to the screen once again."

"Sky was always one of my favourite characters and I always wanted to name my daughter after her if I had one. Finally got the chance last year. She’s a Skyler but Sky for short," one super fan said.
