Margot played the much-loved character from 2008 to 2011, and despite going on to become one of the biggest names in Hollywood, she be up for a visit to Ramsay Street. 

“Yeah, I think I would, totally,” she told Australian publication WHO.

“We could get the whole gang back together. I’d be in.”

Margot’s exit storyline saw Donna head to New York to attend fashion school, shortly after the death of her husband, Ringo Brown. 

The actress has since gone on to appear in ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’, ‘Focus’ and ‘Suicide Squad’, in which she played Harley Quinn. 

On Tuesday (23 January), it was announced that she’s received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her role in ‘I, Tonya’

The film, which is yet to be released in the UK, tells the real-life story of figure-skater Tonya Harding (played by Margot) and her connection to the 1994 attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan.

The star also recently revealed how the ‘Neighbours’ cast helped her get by when she was a struggling young actress. 

During an appearance on Australian show ‘The Project’, she said: “I was 17 when I started on the job and I had just moved from the Gold Coast and  didn’t know anyone in Melbourne [where ‘Neighbours’ is filmed].

“Obviously I had never lived on my own before and everyone just pretty much took me under their wing.

“One of the downsides of leaving home at an early age to chase your dreams is preparedness,” she revealed. “I was pretty much living on Froot Loops for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“Everyone was like ‘OK, you will come over to my house’ ... Susan Kennedy [Jackie Woodburne] would invite me over once a week and cook me a roast, and Toadie, or Ryan who plays Toadie, helped me do my taxes!”
