But now, Amanda has taken up residency in Summer Bay – joining her on-screen son Robbo, played by Jake Ryan, as the mother-in-law from hell.
“I was curious to see who they would cast (as my parents), and I was pretty excited when I heard it was Amanda and Frankie,” Ryan said.
“They’re people that you’ve grown up watching. And we had a lot of fun.”
“They’re the best roles. I don’t want to be wishy-washy,” Muggleton said.
“I like roles that have a little bit of meat in them. And this certainly has it.
“I think viewers will realise how much I love my son. He’s been through so much, that I’m very protective.
“Sam Frost is just the most delightful girl, and it’s awful being horrible to her – because she looks so innocent and lovely.”
