Double trouble. The infamous Blakeney twins return to Ramsay Street.
Double Trouble. The Infamous Blakeney Twins Return To Ramsay Street.
No you’re not seeing double, two of Neighbours’ biggest stars from the 90s, twin sisters Gayle and Gillian Blakeney, who played Christina and Caroline Alessi, are heading back to Ramsay Street.
So we guess someone should warn Paul Robinson now.
That’s right! 27 years on the Blakeney twins will be stepping back into the shoes of the characters that made them household names.
Gayle Blakeney will get to know her character Christina Alessi again and we imagine they have a lot of catching up to do. Christina left her mark on Ramsay Street as one of Paul Robinson’s (many) ex-wives. But this one was with a twist.
This brings us to Gillian Blakeney who will slip back into the role of the fiery and a little bit naughty, Caroline Alessi, who is best known for being Paul’s lover. There’s that twist we warned you about.
On their return to Erinsborough, Gayle said: “We were tickled pink to be asked back and we knew if they wanted to reprise the characters after nearly 30 years, it had to be for a great story line which it is. We’re really looking forward to filming it.”
Gillian added: “Strangely enough it feels just so comfortable and familiar despite the obvious changes, the cast and crew have been so welcoming.”
What are the twin sisters up to in Ramsay Street we hear you ask? Well, you will have to wait and see, but it's certain their plans will involve television’s biggest philanderer Paul Robinson and will spell double trouble.
Gayle and Gillian Blakeney will hit our television screens in September 2019.
