After 33 years away from the show, Dannii Minogue said on Sunday that she would be amenable to returning to her iconic role as Emma Jackson on Home and Away.
The 51-year-old music sensation stated in this week’s Stellar Magazine that she was motivated to return to Neighbours after watching her 55-year-old sister Kylie appear in one episode last year.
It was a delight for the whole family, not just Kylie. We were part of it since we were all in the same house when she was doing that,’ she started.
Thus, a follow-up to Emma on Home and Away would be entertaining. I keep thinking that taking action would be quite pleasant. See what transpires.
While her sister shone as Charlene on Neighbours from 1986 to 1988, Dannii made her start in the business as the punk adolescent Emma Jackson on Home and Away from 1989 to 1990.
Three decades later, Minogue noted, the TV world had changed significantly, so there would be many intriguing opportunities to revive her legendary character.
“TV has seen the most insane transformations.” Now that there are so many opportunities, it would be really thrilling and entice me to return.
In another part of the conversation, Dannii disclosed that she lost some of her following after taking over as host of the gay dating programme I Kissed A Boy on the BBC earlier this year.
The Melbourne native noted that, given her history as a vocal LGBTQ+ ally, she thought it was somewhat odd how some of her social media followers had responded.
I laughed so hard when I saw the comments from those who had said, “I’m unfollowing you.” The pop diva remarked, “I just thought, well, that’s bizarre.”
“I have gay friends all over the world,” Dannii continued, adding that she was a strong advocate for their diverse paths.
I Kissed A Girl, a lesbian counterpart of I Kissed A Boy, will see Dannii return as presenter, playing Cupid throughout ten episodes. I Kissed A Boy has received incredible reviews.
We Could Be The One, her most recent single and the theme song for I Kissed A Boy, peaked at No. 2 on the iTunes download chart.
The Australian music artist and her former partner Kris Smith are parents to 13-year-old kid Ethan.
