There’s been a few sad departures from Neighbours recently, most notably the Rebecchi family and Pierce Greyson following THAT shock affair.

As is the revolving door of the soap world, when someone leaves Ramsay Street it usually leaves the room for someone new to enter.

In this case that someone isn’t just anyone, with the show announcing its newest resident is none other than Aussie model, Montana Cox.

Taking to Instagram Neighbours revealed the news with a photo of the 27-year-old on set.

“We are thrilled to announce that Montana Cox will be heading to Erinsborough soon! Keep your eyes peeled, you won’t want to miss this! 👀 #Neighbours @montanacox1,” the post reads.

While Montana hasn’t given away any details or addressed the news on her own socials she did leave a loving heart face emoji comment on the show’s announcement.

Fans eagerly began guessing how Montana’s character would fit into the show, some pointing out the resemblance the model bares to former Neighbours star Zoe Crammond, who played Amy Williams.

Many speculated that she could be yet another of Paul’s long-lost children or a potential new love interest for Ned.

We will just have to wait and see!

Montana shot to stardom in 2011 when at just 17-years-old she won season 7 of Australia’s Next Top Model. She has had a successful career in the fashion world since.

While this may be Montana’s first official venture into acting, we have no doubt she’s going to absolutely kill it.
