Viewers have gotten a sneak peek at Joe Mangel’s (Mark Little) forthcoming reappearance in Neighbours, which will take place 17 years after his last appearance.
In the Friday episode, Joe will make a special comeback via video call when Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) contacts him to clarify his theories regarding Melanie Pearson (Lucinda Cowen).
Due to Melanie’s prior marriage to Joe, Harold, who recently moved back to Erinsborough, has serious reservations about her getting married to longtime friend Toadie (Ryan Moloney).
In the outing on Thursday, July 14, the former café owner indicated that his son-in-law Joe had earlier informed him that Melanie’s departure hurt his grandkids, Toby and Sky. As a result, he is worried that she will do the same to Nell and Hugo.
Harold’s problems with Melanie shocked Toadie, who even gave him the order to quit the couple’s engagement party!
As a result, Harold is motivated to make up for his errors and contacts Joe in the upcoming episode to learn the truth about his and Melanie’s breakup.
Joe routinely starred in Neighbours from 1988 to 1991.
