Neighbours star warns new Ramsay St resident Chrishell Stause of show’s “jail vibes”

The Selling Sunset star is due to begin filming in July.

Incoming Neighbours star Chrishell Stause has been warned of the long-running soap’s “jail vibes” by a fellow alum.

ICYMI: Selling Sunset star-slash-musician G-Flip‘s wife was announced as the newest Ramsay Street resident in May, with her guest tenure on the series to begin filming in July.

While Neighbours — which first hit the airwaves in 1985 — is iconic, former cast member Jordy Lucas thinks Chrishell might be in for a rude awakening when stepping onto the set.

Dishing some dirt in a recent episode of her podcast, That’s Showbiz Baby!, Jordy — who played Summer Hoyland from 2009 to 2012 before reprising her role in 2023 — said the soap is far removed from the “glitz and glamour” of Selling Sunset.

“What [Chrishell is] in for when she goes to Ramsay Street, is not that,” she confessed.

“To give you a bit of an idea of the ambience … They used to film a show called Prisoner in the studios. So the whole building has a bit of a jail vibe.”

Jordy added: “It makes me chuckle imagining what her face is going to look like when she walks into Nunawading [where Neighbours is filmed in Melbourne].

“It’s definitely going to be a very different experience for Chrishell.”

Further fanning the flames that will undoubtedly feature in a future dramatic episode of the soapie, Jordy thinks any special treatment Chrishell receives will sh*t the current cast.

“I’m assuming she will have a trailer, which would also make me laugh because they’re going to have to make room in the car park for the trailer which is going to piss off [everyone],” she predicted.

Jordy then urged Chrishell to “immerse” herself in the experience.

In fact, she dished that the cast is “like a family” and that regardless of the stark difference between sets, the 42-year-old will defs “enjoy herself”.

What has Chrishell Stause said about her Neighbours role?

No stranger to a soap opera, having appeared in Days of Our Lives and The Bold and The Beautiful, Chrishell previously confessed that she was “honoured and excited” to join Neighbours.

“Coming from the world of soaps in the U.S., it’s back to my first love in the entertainment industry,” she said.

“They pitched me an idea for a character, and I was immediately excited to figure out a way to make it happen. Ramsay Street here I come!”
