Matthew Werkmeister and Kaiya Jones are set to return to Neighbours later this year for a special celebratory episode.

The young actors, best known for their respective roles as Zeke Kinski and Sophie Ramsay on the Australian soap will guest in a special celebration episode which is due to air on Australian screens in April.

Werkmeister will appear as stepmother and stepfather Susan and Karl Kennedy's (Jackie Woodburne and Alan Fletcher) celebrate twenty years on screen.

Woodburne, who plays Susan said: "It seems like yesterday that Matt walked on set as a young boy still at primary school, and suddenly now he's a grown man. We have shared a lot of fun storylines as well as a few tragic ones, the full gamut.''

Jones, meanwhile, last appeared on screens as Sophie in 2013 but with older sister Kate (Ashleigh Brewer) set to exit later this year, it is not known whether Sophie's return will coincide with her sister's exit from the show.
