Ramsay Street’s biggest baddie is back.

By TV Week team
Her big Neighbours return has been teased for months and now we know Izzy Hoyland (Natalie Bassingthwaighte) will arrive to Ramsay Street on Tuesday February 13 in a movie-length episode.
The infamous home wrecker shows up in Erinsborough during the 90-minute special ep. She'll have a dramatic reunion with Susan (Jackie Woodburne) who instantly wonders what Izzy has planned for Karl (Alan Fletcher).

But Izzy won't be the only Neighbours character making a reappearance.
Stu (Blair McDonough), Sindi (Marisa Warrington), Stonefish (Anthony Engelman) and Lance (Andrew Bibby) will also be back. They're in town for Toadie's (Ryan Moloney) belated 21st birthday party, which is 90s themed.
The action-packed episode also launches many other big storylines for the coming weeks.
"I feel very humbled that Izzy's return will be an extended episode," Natalie said about her comeback.
Izzy and Karl once had an affair.
"Izzy always knew how to make an entrance and this is no exception! It was fabulous to be filming back at the studios where my career started and straight away I felt completely at home – and to reunite with Alan and Jackie again was a dream.
"Viewers can be assured Izzy is back with a vengeance, creating chaos. If you loved to hate her before, you will love to hate her even more."
While Natalie, 42, has remained tight-lipped about whether Izzy and Karl will have a romantic rendezvous, she did reveal she will be hooking up with someone.
"I do have a bedroom scene," she recently told TV WEEK. "I feel like an old hand at it now. It feels kind of normal, which is weird."
