Neighbours star Rebekah Elmaloglou has said that she would be up for joining a soap in the UK following the Australian show's ending.


Elmaloglou has played Terese Willis since 2013, with the character featuring in a number of prominent storylines, including battling breast cancer and dealing with her alcoholism. Terese has also been through divorce and suffered the devastating loss of son Josh (Harley Bonner).

As Neighbours gears up for its finale next week, the big question for Terese is who exactly does her future lie with? But looking ahead for the star, would Elmaloglou consider signing up for another soap role?

"They've got some soaps in England, so to me they've got a huge, popular idea, massive," she says.

"Go and work on a soap in the UK, why not? I don’t know which one, they're all amazing. And they've all got such longevity like Home and Away and Neighbours had. There's quite a few, isn't there?"

It's clear that Elmaloglou is familiar with British serial drama as she muses over the possibilities. And she adds that she would be interested in appearing in whichever show would be willing!

"There's EastEnders, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale. I mean, it's just amazing. I don't know, whoever would have me really!"

Could we be seeing the star on the cobbles, or in the East End? The campaign starts here!

Meanwhile, Elmaloglou also has high praise for UK drama, as she reveals she's a huge fan of one in particular. This has inspired her ambition to star in a police drama. "I've always wanted to play an Aussie cop!" she tells us.

"I love British cop shows, my husband and I are addicted to Happy Valley with Sarah Lancashire, we love those sorts of shows, so I'd love to play a detective or a cop in one of those types of shows."
