Janice de Belen returns to GMA-7 for the upcoming teleserye Destined To Be Yours, which is topbilled by Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.
It was first speculated that Janice will be part of the AlDub teleserye when she posted a picture with Maine last December 13.
It turned out that the photo was taken during the story conference of the TV series held last Tuesday.
Yesterday, December 18, Janice posted on her Instagram account an envelope indicating the name of her character in Destined To Be Yours.
She will be taking on the role of Sally Obispo.
Janice simply provided the caption: "2017!!! *smile emoji*"
In a previous PEP report, it was revealed that Janice plays the role of Maine's mother.
