Fans of the mother-of-six were thrilled by her new look, with one commenting: ‘Love you as a blonde!’ 

‘Happy new year to you and your family. You look fabulous,’ another wrote. 

Long-time fans will remember that Madeline sported blonde locks while portraying Dee Bliss and her evil lookalike Andrea Somers on Neighbours.

Madeleine’s return to blonde could be a hint that she’s set to return to newly-rebooted soap this year after the franchise was picked up by Amazon. 

The new series will begin filming early this year, and will see the likes of Stefan Dennis, (Paul Robinson) Alan Fletcher, (Dr Karl Kennedy), Ryan Moloney, (Toadfish) and Jackie Woodburne, (Susan Kennedy), reprising their leading roles. 

The full casting lineup has not yet been revealed.

It was announced in November that Neighbours had been saved just four months after its final episode aired in July. 

The soap had been axed in March after 37 years on the air when the UK’s Channel 5 pulled out as an international broadcast partner. 

Madeleine, who recently embarked on a career in politics, did not make an appearance in the finale episode. 

She starred on Neighbours from 2000 to 2003, before returning to the show on-off between 2017 and 2020.
