The Young and the Restless has found its new Kyle Abbott. Former Home and Away star Lachlan Buchanan will assume the role of Jack (Peter Bergman) and Diane’s son this February.

Daytime Confidential is reporting that Hayley Erin (ex-Abby, The Young and the Restless) is joining General Hospital as the new Kiki Jerome. Erin replaces Kristen Alderson, who announced her departure from the ABC soap earlier this month.

— Per Soaps In Depth, ABC will be bringing back the popular Fan February campaign next month to reward loyal General Hospital fans with something special every day. A spokesperson told the soap mag that fans can stay tuned for more information. ABC began the promotional campaign in 2003 and was last done in 2007.

General Hospital stars Jason Thompson (Patrick), Billy Miller (Jason), Kelly Monaco (Sam), Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), William DeVry (Julian) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) attended the TCA Winter Press Tour last week. Check out some photos from their appearance:
