Harold moved into the Eirini Rising retirement complex late last month.

Ian Smith has reprised the role of Harold on a semi-regular basis, filming for one day per week.

He recently told Digital Spy: "It's back on a 'bits and bobs' basis. I'm not sure whether they asked me to come back full time or not, but if they had, I would have said no because I am retired.

"But 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."

He continued: "I received the call out of the blue. I was standing on a pier, with a fishing rod in my hand, and my phone went. It was the boss asking me whether I'd come back. We did so much talking, I think it was at least half an hour.

"At the end of it, I was back on the show doing bits and bobs and a smile came back on my face for the first time in a while. It was fun, I like phone calls like that."

Neighbours officially announced Sky's return last month. Stephanie played the role as a show regular between 2003 and 2007, later making returns in 2015, 2020 and 2022.

In a social media post, the soap explained: "Sky Mangel returns to Ramsay Street!

"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."

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.
