Neighbours announces return for Sky Mangel

Neighbours is officially bringing back Sky Mangel.

Today, the soap's Instagram confirmed that Stephanie McIntosh will be returning to the role "in the coming weeks". Sky's visit follows her grandfather Harold Bishop's move back to Erinsborough.

"Sky Mangel returns to Ramsay Street!" read the post.

"Hot on the heels of Harold... Sky will be dropping by to visit her dear old grandad. But what else has brought her back to Erinsborough? Stephanie McIntosh will be reprising her much loved role in the coming weeks."

Sky was last seen on Ramsay Street in 2020, marrying Lana Crawford and then investigating Finn Kelly's death.

In the Australian edit of the 2022 finale, she also appeared in the video montage of past characters congratulating Toadie and Melanie on their wedding.

Harold makes his way back to Erinsborough on a permanent basis next week, living at the Eirini Rising retirement complex.

"I'm back for one day a week and gee-whizz, it's a luxury to have that one day a week. How many older actors get that luxury? It's wonderful to keep busy," actor Ian Smith told Digital Spy in an exclusive interview.

Harold and Sky aren't the only characters returning.

Hilary Robinson, played by Anne Scott-Pendlebury, will also be on screens in upcoming episodes. Like Harold, she moves into the Eirini Rising retirement complex.

Hilary's return causes some drama between Terese and Paul.

Neighbours releases new episodes from Mondays to Thursdays for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US. In Australia, the show airs from Mondays to Thursdays at 4pm on Channel 10, with a 6.30pm repeat screening on 10 Peach.
