Delta Goodrem is returning to 'Neighbours'.

The 30-year-old singer-songwriter will reprise her role as Nina Tucker for a three episode stint to celebrate the Australian soap's 30th anniversary in 2015.

Confirming the news on her Twitter account, she wrote: "I am so excited to be making a guest appearance as my character Nina for neighbors special 30th anniversary xx (sic)."

In a further tweet, the star posted a photo of the cast from 2002 and said: "Look out Ramsey street I'm back.... #ninareturns #30thanniversaryspecial xx (sic)."

The blonde beauty was a regular on the show between 2002 and 2003, but hasn't been seen on Ramsay Street since 2005, when she featured as part of the show's 20th anniversary celebrations.

Writers for the show have not yet revealed details of the storyline in which the actress will be involved, but it's believed her return may focus on her character's musical ability.

Speaking about Delta's comeback, series producer Jason Herbison said: "It's natural that music would somehow be involved. Having Delta join us for this momentous occasion is the icing on the cake, we are delighted."

The announcement follows news that the iconic Erinsborough residents Harold and Madge Bishop, played by Ian Smith and Anne Charleston, will be returning to the show for the milestone.

In August rumours of a return from fellow singing superstar Kylie Minogue began to circulate now that her on-screen son, Daniel Robinson, is on the show.

However, the star - who played Charlene in the soap - has since shut down hopes for a comeback.

She told ITV London: "It's just not happening. It's just a little rumour that got legs."
