SARAH MOO-VES IN; NEIGHBOURS STAR BOOKS A SPOT WITH MORAG THE COW.
She's taken up residence in Glasgow to co-present BBC2's Sunday morning show, Fully Booked.
Mega checked into the Fully Booked hotel to meet Sarah, who replaces Zoe Ball, and - everyone's favourite - Morag the Highland cow.
"It's hard being new," admits Sarah, 23, who played Lauren in Neighbours. "Zoe left incredibly big shoes to fill - she's so good at her job."
"I'm used to having a script and I'm good at memorising lines but presenting is different. You have to make things up on the spur of the moment.
"My acting helps, because I put on a performance as this dizzy, out-of- control girl."
Co-presenter Grant Stott says he and Sarah make a great team.
"It's difficult to fit into an established show like this but Sarah's got her teeth into it and is having a good laugh.
"She has problems understanding me, though, especially when I talk very fast and very Scottish," jokes Grant. Sarah has been poring over teen mags to catch up on all the latest gossip.
"It's terribly addictive," she says. "But the funny thing is that I used to hate it when I was in Neighbours and the Press wrote things about me!"
So, does she miss Neighbours?
"Not at all," she says firmly. "The main reason I left was because nobody was letting me be anyone else except Lauren.
"Now I've got a chance to be myself."
