While a specific first airdate is not known at this time, an ABC spokesperson has confirmed to Soap Opera Network that Richard Simmons is returning to “General Hospital.” We’re told the fitness expert and sometimes actor is expected to hit the screen sometime in August. Details on what brings Simmons back to “GH” are not available at this time.

Simmons revealed his return to the soap yesterday when he tweeted, “Off to do General Hospital this morning…………what fun!” He later tweeted, “On the set of gh. So fab!”

Simmons was last seen earlier this year in scenes playing against Lynn Herring‘s Lucy Coe as the two battled it out over the Nurses Ball.
