TV thespian Michelle Botes was filming scenes on Tuesday for special episodes marking the soapies milestone anniversary produced by Pomegranate Media.

These will be broadcast on Friday 5 July and Monday 8 July on SABC3.

The show shared a photo of Michelle back in the dressing room, getting hair and make-up done on their official Twitter account.
