RICHARD Arnold treated fans to a first look at his new Neighbours role on today’s Good Morning Britain.
The telly host, 49, stars as “spiritual guru” Graham on the Aussie soap alongside actress Denise Van Outen, 45.
Filming kicked off in London in June before the pair jetted across to Melbourne to film on the famous Ramsay Street set.
Resident Neighbours stars Stefan Dennis (Paul Robinson) and Rebekah Elmaloglou (Terese Willis) flew overseas to the capital to shoot the special episode.
West End actress Denise plays Harlow Robinson’s mum who comes face to face with ex Paul in London.
Speaking when the role was announced, Denise gushed: “I am thrilled to be joining the cast of one the world’s most iconic shows, Neighbours.
“To be asked is a privilege and I am very excited to get to work on a really fun storyline first in London and then heading over to Melbourne.
“I can’t say too much just yet but my character Prue is heading to Ramsay Street to stir things up and I can’t wait!”
Discussing his character Graham, Richard described him as a “sinister chap exerting a dark influence over Denise’s character.”
He joked: “Basically, me and Den on a night out.”
