'Neighbours': Blair McDonough wanted Stu Parker return

By
Former Neighbours star Blair McDonough has revealed that he was interested in returning to the soap alongside Patrick Harvey.

Harvey recently reprised his role as Connor O'Neill for a four-week guest stint, which will see his character paying a visit to ex-housemate Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney).

McDonough has now told Inside Soap that he would have also liked to head back to Ramsay Street as Stu Parker for the storyline, providing a full-scale 'House of Trouser' reunion.

He explained: "I did actually float the idea of Stu making a return to the Neighbours producers. They were too far down the path with the storyline at that point, though.

"I know Paddy had a lot of fun while he was there. Connor was quite an iconic character, so it's great that he came back for a while."

Confirming that he has fond memories of his soap role, McDonough continued: "Neighbours was my university! I didn't go to uni or get the chance to do all those crazy things as a kid, so that's what Neighbours was for me.

"I'd just done Big Brother, and that was a real rollercoaster from start to finish, so I was glad to have Neighbours to help keep my feet on the ground."

McDonough is currently a cast member on drama series Winners & Losers. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
