Neighbours actress checks-in to British soap Crossroads

Former Neighbours actress Anne Charleston is joining the cast of Crossroads.

Charleston, who played Madge Bishop in the Australian soap, will join Crossroads when it returns to ITV next year.

According to the Daily Mirror, when the show returns it will have a new look which will aim to make it the “Dallas of tea-time soaps“.

The show’s producer Yvon Grace told the paper: “I was told this was its last chance. So I thought ‘Let’s be bold, lets make Dallas for British tea time'”.

Both Crossroads and Neighbours were brought to screens by Australian producer Reg Watson. Watson is also the man who gave us hits such as Sons and Daughters, The Young Doctors and Prisoner: Cell Block H.
