Neighbours' much-loved identical twins Christina and Caroline Alessi now look totally different decades on from their soap days.
Gayle and Gillian Blakeney are now 57-years-old and found fame on the Australian soap in the 90s. The twins had their fair share of dramatic storylines over the years with a dramatic welcome. Just after moving to Ramsay Street, the twins were put under witness protection after seeing a murder unfold in an explosive storyline. They even made the most out of being identical twins as they pretended the be the same person.
Christina and Caroline adopted the persona of Linda Giles before they were uncovered by local baddie, Paul Robinson. They also got involved in a sea of romances with Christina marrying Paul, only for Caroline to have fallen for his charm and leave the neighbourhood. Gayle and Gillian left the Aussie soap at different times in 1992. They returned for three episodes in 2019 before leaving acting for good.
After Neighbours, the sisters started a band called The Twins where they released three tracks - All Mixed Up, Mad If Ya Don't and Wanna Be Your Lover. They decided to ditch their life Down Under for California. Both Gayle and Gillian live in the US with their partners and children. They even became pregnant at the same time and gave birth within weeks of each other.
Gillian has a daughter called Stella, while Gayle has a son called Jack and also went on to have twins herself. They both look drastically different from their soap days. In a Facebook video shared back in 2018, they both glammed up in black to celebrate their pals birthday. Gillian and Gayle kept their hair similar as they both chose loose waves and a middle parting.
The former actresses wore similar glam makeup as they opted for a pink lip and smokey eye. Gillian wrote the caption: "Me and my wombmate" alongside a winky face. As they made their return to Neighbours in 2019, Gillian and Gayle also made an appearance on Loose Women. They both looked totally different, sporting mid-length haircuts compared to their 90s fringes.
Another snap of the sisters showed them when they made their return to Ramsey Street, both in chic shirts with their dark brunette hair down in loose waves. Gillian is the co-founder of a scarf company that has a host of celebrity buyers called Leigh and Luca. Mary Kate Olsen and Hilary Duff are fans of Gillian's garments. She married her husband David in October 2021 in an intimate ceremony and was walked down the aisle by Gayle's husband Mark.
