Samantha Jade is joining Home & Away!

Aussie songstress Samantha Jade is set to make another Australian TV apperance, this time as a series regular on popular home-grown drama, Home & Away.

Jade will be taking on the role of Isla. “It is really exciting. I’ve wanted to do more acting and I wanted to do something unexpected and different and this is very very different to Kylie (Minogue).

“I can’t say too much but I can say she comes to the Bay with bad intentions. She has a bit of a past and she falls for one of the favourite boys on the show,” Jade told The Daily Telegraph.

Filming of her first scenes have also already begun! See a photo from her first day below.

Her long-awaited album is set for release in October, so she is going to be one busy gal!

“There’s lots going on at the moment, which is really exciting,” she said.

Samantha Jade’s first appearance on the hit soap will take place early next year on Seven.
