This is insane.

We’ve been watching Neighbours for years, but we hadn’t a clue that we were watching a gal from just up the road.

Jackie Woodburne, AKA Susan, was on This Morning today and gave viewers a shock when she revealed that she’s from Northern Ireland.

Chatting to hosts Ruth Langsford and and Eamonn Holmes, who’s a Belfast man, Jackie slipped into a soft Northern accent and we were astounded.

Check it out here.



Turns out Jackie was born in Carrickfergus to Northern Irish parents and lived there until she was three and the family emigrated to Australia.

People on Twitter were very surprised to hear her accent.
