Aaron's reversal of Fortune

Controversial soap star Aaron Jeffery is set to make his homecoming.

The actor who plays arrogant Alex Ryan on the long-running Aussie series McLeod’s Daughters has been signed to star in our hottest comedy series Outrageous Fortune.

There’s no word on what his role will be but he has experience on the wrong side of the law to be in the West family.

The Howick-born star was arrested for assaulting his wife, Melinda Medich to whom he has a three-year-old daughter Ella Blu.

He was spared a court conviction and given a $125, 12-month good behaviour bond after admitting the assault. The court heard he grabbed his wife around the throat, saying he was so angry he could kill her.

Aaron – who has been dating his McLeod’s Daughters co-star and fellow Kiwi Michelle Langstone (Fiona Webb) – will join the stellar cast of Robyn Malcolm, Grant Bowler, Antony Starr, Claire Chitham and Shane Cortese for the third series of the award-winning comedy.

He finished filming on McLeod’s last week without confirming whether he would return to film a seventh series.

However, insiders say it’s “looking promising” with a decision expected in the new year.

They said even if he did go, his character of Alex Ryan would still be seen on-air until October or November in 2007.

Aaron has been in McLeod’s since it began in 2001.
