Stefan Dennis wants Neighbours romance

Stefan Dennis wants an on-screen romance in 'Neighbours'.

The veteran soap star's character, Paul Robinson, hasn't had a partner on the show since he split from wife Rebecca Napier in 2010, and now believes it's time for the businessman to start dating again.

Speaking at the 'Neighbours' 30th anniversary party at Cafe de Paris in London, he told BANG Showbiz: "I think it's time for Paul to have another long-term romance, and that's always a good, fun storyline because it takes you everywhere, particularly with a character like Paul and the women he's attracted to. It's all about clash."

The dastardly mayor of Erinsborough has had several wives on the show during his 30 years in the role, including Lyn Scully and Gail Lewis, but is hoping his next romantic interest will be a Hollywood star instead.

When asked who his top choice of actress to play Paul's next girlfriend is, he said: "Charlize Theron. Can we go out to her please? We'll have to have a word with the producers! That would rock."

And after three decades on the Australian soap, Stefan, 56, insists he has no plans to slow down and will stay on the show as long as he continues to be part of exciting plotlines.

He added: "As long as they keep paying me, as long as they keep giving me good storylines, I'll keep doing it."

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