Former Ramsey Street resident Kym Valentine is reportedly suing the show’s producers for alleged sex and disability discrimination.
Fairfax is reporting that Valentine, who played Libby Kennedy on Neighbours between 2004 and 2011, suffered a number of health problems during her time on the show, including a collapsed lung while travelling and a blood clot. She is also believed to have been suffereing from a depressive illness. She took time off for illness at different stages, with Michala Banas even having to take over the role of Libby for a short stint in 2009.
Her contract expired in 2011 and she hasn’t returned to the show since.
Valentine is seeking compensation for lost wages and she is demanding that she be rehired in the role of Libby. Which, let’s be honest, would be kind of awkward.
And will Billy be coming back too?

But, alas, the radio station cottoned on to their use of an automated script to hack the online voting system, and Charles was stripped of his title, which included a backstage pass to meet Swift at her concert.
No word yet on whether a 16-year-old Swiftie has rightfully regained the title.
