    Exclamation Dee Bliss (Madeleine West)

    It's the Neighbours news we never thought we'd hear and we couldn't be more excited about it - Toadie Rebecchi's 'dead' wife Dee Bliss is making an explosive return to Ramsay Street.

    And no, this isn't for a bonkers online spinoff or a fun social media sketch - Madeleine West really is reprising her role as Dee in the main show after 13 years away. We can hardly believe it either, if we're honest.

    Neighbours fans thought they'd seen the last of Dee in 2003 when Toadie carelessly drove her over a cliff just minutes after marrying her.

    Poor Dee was seemingly lost forever in the ocean as her body was never found - so what better excuse to bring her back all these years later?

    Neighbours bosses have confirmed that Madeleine is reprising her role as Dee for an unmissable guest stint, which could finally solve the mystery of what actually happened to Dee. Well let's hope so, after 13 years of waiting.

    Speaking of her shock comeback, Madeleine revealed: "It is a very rare and wonderful thing when an actor has the opportunity to step back into the shoes of a character they created, even more so when that character had not been seen for some 13 years, and was one as beloved as Dee Bliss.

    "For me, this return to Neighbours is something of a homecoming, to the place where I took my first tentative steps into the entertainment industry, and where I truly learnt my craft."

    Madeleine West
    West started filming back at Neighbours this week and her return scenes will air in December and January.

    Since leaving Neighbours, Madeleine has appeared in a number of high-profile Aussie shows including The Starter Wife, Satisfaction, House Husbands, Rescue Special Ops, Winners & Losers, City Homicide and Underbelly. But there's clearly no place like home.

    And we have to ask, what on earth is Toadie's current wife Sonya going to make of all this?

    Really looking forward to this - remember when Toadie went over the cliff edge all those years ago after their wedding. Anything to slap Sonia down when she goes into overdrive manic mode.

    I was gutted when Dee "died" and like lots of other Neighbours fans have always hoped she'd return one day. The big question is whether she's back to reclaim Toadie?

    The happy couple's car falling over the cliff on their honeymoon was such a huge shock at the time!

    I think she is only back for a short time so can´t see her fighting for Toadie for long or Toadie makes it quite clear he is married and has moved on ..but should be interesting when they first meet

    Does this mean that Toadie is not legally married to Sonya?

    Is 10 years the length that after that time then you can remarry if you think your partner is deceased

    Seven years in UK if a person has been missing

    https://www.gov.uk/get-declaration-p...death/overview

    You can make a claim for a ‘declaration of presumed death’ from the High Court if someone you know in England and Wales has been missing for:

    7 years or more
    less than 7 years and you think they’ve died, eg they went missing during a natural disaster
    A missing person isn’t automatically presumed dead.

    You must make a claim for a declaration of presumed death if you want to do certain things, eg deal with their estate.

    Who can make a claim
    You can make a claim if you’re the missing person’s:

    spouse or civil partner
    parent
    child
    sibling
    If none of these apply, you’ll need to prove to the court that you have enough of a connection to the missing person (‘sufficient interest’), eg you’re a distant relative and you have a birth certificate to prove it.

    What else must be true to make a claim
    To make a claim one or more of the following must also apply:

    you’re the missing person’s spouse or civil partner and you treat England or Wales as your permanent home (‘domicile’) on the date you make the claim
    you’re the missing person’s spouse or civil partner and you’ve been living in England or Wales for the whole year before the date you make the claim
    the missing person treated England or Wales as their permanent home (‘domicile’) on the date they were last known to be alive

    the missing person was living in England or Wales for the whole year before the date they were last known to be alive 

    The rules are different in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    Fees
    It costs £480 to get a declaration of presumed death. Read the fees leaflet to find out when you might not have to pay.
