Jason Donovan's daughter Jemma Donovan has joined Neighbours.

The 18-year-old actress has become the third member of the Donovan family to land a role on the Australian soap, following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather.

Jemma - Erinsborough - Character - Harlow - Robinson

Jemma is heading to Erinsborough to play the quick-witted and complicated character of Harlow Robinson in the Australian soap, with her first scenes set to air in the summer.

Speaking about her new role, Jemma said: 'I was so happy and very honoured to be a part of a series which has been enjoyed by generations.'

Jemma - Role - Netflix - Series - Spotless

Jemma, who had a recurring role in Netflix series, Spotless, and starred in the BBC One film Mr Stink, added that it couldn't have come at a better time.

She explained: 'The timing was also perfect because since my previous role on Spotless in 2015, I stopped going to auditions and acting because I wanted to finish my schooling, get my A levels and see what I wanted to do after that so it's great how everything has fallen into place.'

Jason - Scott - Robinson - Soap - 'Neighbours

Jason - who played Scott Robinson on the soap from 1986 to 1989 - added: 'Neighbours is an incredible learning curve for any young actor.

'It's become an institution and I'm so grateful for my time on Ramsay Street.
