Holly Valance wants you to forget she was ever on Neighbours.

Holly Valance dominated radio waves in the early 2000s. 

The hit single ‘Kiss Kiss’ helped launch her music career and saw the Melbourne-born actress nominated for four ARIA Music Awards.

By then, Valance was already a household name in Australia after appearing on the hit TV show Neighbours and would go on to find fame overseas — but she’d prefer we didn’t think about her earlier (and more humble) days, after labelling “leftie” political ideas as “crap”.

“Everyone starts off as a leftie and then wakes up at some point after you start making money, working, trying to run a business, trying to buy a home and then realise what crap ideas they all are. And then you go to the right,” she said to GB News this week at a conservative political event.

Valance continued by sharing her views on climate change. 

“I just think the climate crisis or lack of it, is not a crisis,” she said. “I mean the air is better than when I was growing up. It used to stink walking down the street when I was growing up. Cleaner, cheaper energy is what we need.”

These days, the 40-year-old has come a long way since Ramsay Street and is now living in London with her billionaire husband, Nick Candy, and two kids. 

Here’s everything else Valance has been up to since the release of ‘Kiss Kiss’.

Her beginnings on Neighbours.

Australia first met Holly Valance on Neighbours back in 1999. For three years, the young actress played Felicity Jane “Flick” Scully on the hit TV soap opera. She later made a cameo appearance in the show’s 20th anniversary episode in 2005. 

As her first acting gig, Valance said she was thrown straight into the deep end of the show.
