    Kerry Armstrong (Alice Wells)

    Nowtolove.com.au article (from TV Week):

    Kerry Armstrong has joined the cast of Neighbours as guest character Alice Wells:


    Exciting news! Kerry Armstrong joins the cast of Neighbours
    “It was irresistible!”


    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...urs-2018-50855

    Hot off appearances from Magda Szubanski and Debra Lawrance, Neighbours is adding another stellar name to their list of guest star roles – Kerry Armstrong.

    "Kerry is a legend of Australian film and television and we are honoured to have her in Neighbours," the show's executive producer, Jason Herbison says.

    The award winning actress, most recently seen in hit drama The Wrong Girl, will be arriving to Ramsay Street in October. And her character, Alice Wells, is set to cause quite the stir.

    The seemingly sweet nanna is said to have one sensationally devious plan for her new neighbours.

    "Alice is a character who pushes every boundary and is a force to be reckoned with," Kerry, 60, teases. "There is a lot of encouragement [from producers] to see who she is and how far she can go."

    The actress made history back in 2001 when she received two AACTA awards for separate performances in TV series SeaChange and Mystery Drama film Lantana. She was also recently nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her role as Jennifer in feature film Pawno.

    Despite her status as an award-winning actress, Kerry says finding her feet on set took a little time.

    "I like being kept on my toes and liked finding out how rusty I was," she recalls.

    "I thought oh my god if this was the Wizard of Oz, I'm definitely the Tin Man trying desperately to head towards Toto", she says with a laugh.

    Audiences haven't had to wait long to see Kerry back on their screens, after she made her appearance in the jungle on reality show I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! earlier this year.

    We can't wait to see Kerry in her exciting new role!

    Neighbours airs weeknights at 6:30pm on Eleven.

    SPOILER ALERT!

    The latest spoilers mention that Kerry Armstrong’s character, Alice Wells, will become Sonya & Toadie’s live-in-nanny. Apparently Soap World magazine has a story indicating that Alice is actually Andrea’s mother!

    If that is true then Andrea won't turn out to be Dee.

    This is the Soap World article someone posted elsewhere:


    SPOILER ALERT!


    Nightmare Nanny!
    The Rebecchis' prayers for a babysitter are answered... But is Alice the right person for the job?

    Hiring the perfect childcare worker is never an easy task for time-poor parents like Sonya and Toadie. Even the simplest of outings can be chaotic, as Sonya finds when she's caught juggling Nell and Hugo during a visit to Harold's. Spontaneously approached by cafe customer Alice Wells (Kerry Armstrong), Sonya is grateful when the stranger is incredibly helpful with the kids - and reveals she's a retired nanny who's new to Erinsborough and would love to amuse the kids while Sonya catches up on work. Initially hesitant about "stranger danger", a desperate Sonya gratefully accepts the offer, oblivious to Alice whispering cryptic remarks to Hugo.

    Thrilled by the spick-and-span state of No.30, Sonya and Toadie inquire into Alice's history and, touched by the recent tragedy in her life, check her references and hire her as a live-in-nanny. The world appears to be Sonya and Toadie's oyster but Alice could be more of a shark in the household renowned for its fish nicknames after privately revealing her story is a pack of lies! She's really Andrea Somers' mother! In no time, Alice makes her presence felt around the neighbourhood, getting to know her new employers and making friends with Dipi. She's pleased to win Toadie's admiration for her work while taking the opportunity to drop Andrea's name into conversations with Sonya, and observing her reaction carefully.

    Meanwhile Sonya's becoming increasingly unnerved as Halloween nears. Trick-or-treating with Nell, a distraction puts Sonya in a rather vulnerable position when the little one disappears! Frantically searching for her precious "Jellyfish", Sonya naturally panics with every second that passes without any sign of her daughter. Watching the search unfold, Alice is clearly on a mission but is it one to reassure herself that her grandson's in the care of a capable stepmother or is she in Erinsborough to make trouble on Andrea's behalf? Stay tuned...

    Digital Spy article:

    Neighbours confirms new Fake Dee storyline as her mother arrives on Ramsay Street
    Here we go again…


    http://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/neig...ake-dee-bliss/

    Neighbours delves back into the Fake Dee Bliss storyline next week, as the Rebecchis are befriended by a new character who has a sinister secret.

    Show bosses recently announced the casting of SeaChange actress Kerry Armstrong in the role of Alice Wells, a devious new arrival who'll be worming her way into the Rebecchi family.

    When Sonya (Eve Morey) struggles to look after both Nell and Hugo at Harold's one afternoon, she's surprised as Alice rushes to her rescue, despite being a complete stranger.

    Alice reveals that she's a retired nanny and would be happy to take care of the kids while Sonya gets her work done.

    Although Sonya is reluctant to allow someone unfamiliar into her home, she eventually accepts out of desperation and works nearby so she can supervise things.

    Much to Sonya's delight, Alice is a natural with the kids and soon lands herself a more permanent position as the Rebecchis' live-in nanny.

    What Sonya and Toadie don't realise is that Alice is actually the mother of scheming Andrea Somers, the conwoman who posed as Dee Bliss last year.

    Relieved by how well things have gone, Alice coos to Andrea's son Hugo in private and tells him that her scheme has been much easier than she expected. What does she want from the family and is this another masterplan from Andrea?

    Speaking about her new role earlier this year, Kerry commented: "Alice is a character who pushes every boundary and is a force to be reckoned with. There is a lot of encouragement [from producers] to see who she is and how far she can go."

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Thursday, October 25 and Friday, October 26 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.

    Digital Spy article:


    Neighbours newcomer Alice Wells makes Nell Rebecchi sick in a shocking new storyline
    Her scheming intensifies as Sonya and Toadie remain oblivious.


    http://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/neig...rebecchi-sick/

    Neighbours' newest villain Alice Wells makes a shocking move next week as she deliberately makes Nell Rebecchi unwell.

    Alice (Kerry Armstrong) has managed to land herself a job as the Rebecchi family's new nanny, hiding the all-important fact that she's the mother of Andrea Somers (aka Fake Dee).

    Although Alice was only ever hired on a temporary basis, she's left secretly furious when a place at daycare opens up for Nell (Scarlett Anderson) and she's told that her services are no longer needed.

    Toadie (Ryan Moloney) breaks the news to Alice that she's out of a job, but is later forced to reverse his decision when Nell suddenly becomes sick and needs to stay home from care.

    The Rebecchis are baffled over Nell's sudden illness, but during a private moment with her grandson Hugo, twisted Alice reveals that she deliberately made Nell sick so that she could stick around for longer.

    Later in the week, things continue to go Alice's way when Sonya (Eve Morey) and Toadie consider keeping her on long-term as they're so impressed by her work.

    The couple eventually decide to let Nell make her own choice, so Alice bribes Nell with chocolate to make sure she chooses nanny over daycare.

    With the path clear to cause even more trouble, Alice continues to spy on Sonya at her AA meetings – keen for as much information as possible to use against her.

    After learning that Sonya is wary of taking painkillers for her headache as she's afraid it's a slippery slope for an addict, Alice offers to make her a special home remedy – a nutritious smoothie.

    Sonya gratefully accepts, unaware Alice is adding painkillers to the mix. Could Alice's sneaky behaviour have terrible consequences?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Tuesday, November 6, Wednesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 8 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
