It'd be nice to get a little role on Emmerdale, I love Emmerdale.

But, after several changes and switches with the promotional boxes, Prue ended up carrying the deadly box.

She told the website: "I really enjoyed Neighbours. I had such an amazing time with such a great cast and crew. I'd love to do more. It'd be nice to get a little guest role on another soap.

"I'd enjoy that. I had a small stint on EastEnders for five episodes as a guest, and now Neighbours."

Eyeing up the Dales, Denise added: "It'd be nice to get a little role on Emmerdale, I love Emmerdale. I've got a couple of friends in it."
