Valentine will play a housewife on a property at Bonnie Doon, central Victoria. Together with her husband, the woman helped harbour Tony Mokbel prior to his fleeing to Athens.
It appears to be Valentine’s first television role since departing Neighbours in 2011.
Fat Tony & Co. is being produced by Underbelly producers Screentime for Nine in 2014.
The Age has reported Valentine is suing FremantleMedia alleging she was unfairly dumped from her role as Libby Kennedy, but the Federal Court case was adjourned for the sixth time yesterday.
Via Twitter she has said, “It was reported that I’m demanding my job back! Which would be hilarious but pointless. Its not my call, that’s up to all of you x”
“Yep it’s a fact. Once a Kennedy always a Kennedy xxx”
