Olympia Valance teases 'illegal' Neighbours plot

Olympia Valance has promised "a lot of illegal stuff" is in store for her 'Neighbours' character Paige Smith.

The 22-year-old actress has revealed her character will find herself in a tricky situation in upcoming scenes in the soap resulting in her resorting to breaking the law, with the huge plot meaning she is rushed off her feet with filming.

Speaking about what's coming up for her character, she told BANG Showbiz: "A lot of illegal stuff.

"Paige is getting into some full on stuff, so it will be fun. There's a lot of storylines coming up so it'll be exciting. I'm doing six until six, 12 hour days."

However, while celebrating the show's 30th anniversary in London on Tuesday (17.03.15), the brunette beauty - who is the half sister of Holly Candy who previously featured in the show as Felicity Scully - revealed she sometimes wishes the family friendly soap was a bit more "filthy" like 'EastEnders' because it would be hilarious for the cast to have the opportunities to push boundaries.

Despite having only seen a "couple of episodes" of the BBC One soap, she said it, "actually seems like a show I'd want to watch because it's filthy and dirty and I love it."

She continued: "We always joke on 'Neighbours' that we'd love it to be an M rating - I don't know if you have ratings here - but we're a G rating, so to go up like two ratings where we could swear and be filthy. It would be fun if we could go all out."

'Neighbours' turns 30 today (18.03.15), and airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
