MANILA -- Actress Judy Ann Santos welcomed back her friend Jolina Magdangal to ABS-CBN.

In a recent interview with ABS-CBNNews.com, Santos said she's really hoping to work again with Magdangal after their defunct hit show "Gimik."

"Ako looking forward ako na makasama ko ulit siya kasi ang ganda ng memories namin sa 'Gimik.' At the same time, masarap ka-trabaho si Jolina and I'm really happy that both of them are back here," said Santos, referring to Magdangal's leading man Marvin Agustin, who has also returned to the Kapamilya network.

"Gimik" was a teen-oriented show which ran from 1996 to 1999 on ABS-CBN. Apart from Santos, Magdangal and Agustin, the show was also a launch pad for many Kapamilya stars including Diether Ocampo, Kristine Hermosa, Rica Peralejo, Dominic Ochoa and the late Rico Yan.

Santos admitted that she's not sure if there is a "Gimik" reunion being planned, now that Magdangal and Agustin are back in ABS-CBN.

"Nagkaroon na kasi ng 'Gimik' reunion pero ewan ko lang kung magka-come up ulit ang ABS-CBN ng isang show like Gimik again," she said.
"Pero open ako, oo naman. Kahit drama 'yan o comedy, it's always nice to work with Jolina and Marvin."

Santos is currently hosting the children game show "Bet On Your Baby" and the reality show "I Do."
