Former Emmerdale star Sheree Murphy is coming back to TV with a role in Australian soap Neighbours.

The actress, who is married to the Australian former Leeds United star Harry Kewell, said she was excited to be going back to work.

She told Hello! Magazine: "It's just kicked in that it's actually happening. I'm going back to work. The kids don't remember me on Emmerdale, so they're excited about seeing mummy on TV.

"The last thing I did was Hollyoaks and I was really nervous. I feel a bit like that on Neighbours, not necessarily because they watch English soaps but more because it's, 'Oh, that's Harry Kewell's wife - what's she doing?"'

Murphy has four children with Kewell who recently retired from the game, playing his last match in his hometown of Sydney.
