Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Emily shared a delightful selfie featuring some of Summer Bay’s finest, including Georgie, Ada Nicodemou, Lynne McGranger, Nicholas Cartwright, and Luke Van Os.

“Beside ourselves to see our lovely @georgieparker again 💜,” Emily captioned the photo. “We missed you! @homeandaway.”

Georgie (who portrays Roo Stewart on the soap) was quick to comment, penning: “Beautiful Em, love you 💋💋💋.”

Emily wasn’t the only H&A star to welcome the actress back with open arms, Ada also shared a similarly sweet post exalting in the reunion.

“Welcome back to work @georgieparker we’ve missed you ❤️ @homeandaway.”

Equally touched by the post, Georgie commented: “Oh sweetheart, thanks so much. I’ve missed the madness and the fun ❤️.”

Georgie, meanwhile, marked her return to set with a photo of herself and Ray Meagher (who portrays Alf on the show).

“Back in the Bay with Ray 😀🧡,” the actress wrote.

Last year’s finale saw Georgie’s character of Roo deal with a kidney transplant storyline. The actress told our sister publication WHO that she was “excited” to play this out on screen.

“I haven’t been involved in a finale story arc for a few years, so it was nice to be involved in the big cliffhanger for once! When I found out that Roo would potentially be donating a kidney to her mum, Martha [Belinda Giblin], despite their complicated relationship, I was stoked because I also think it’s really important to shine a light on organ donation as a subject.”

While things seem to be heating up in Summer Bay, it seems to be a different story on Ramsay Street as other popular soap Neighbours, housed on Network 10, is facing a potential axing. 

After news broke that the beloved show would be pulled off air in the UK, Neighbours fans took to Change.org to save Ramsay Street as filming halts Down Under.

The UK axing leaves the future of the soap in doubt in Australia as well, given that much of its production funding comes from the UK stakeholders.

Fremantle Media executive producer Jason Herbison spoke about the decision on Sunday afternoon, expressing that there are “ongoing discussions” about the show’s future overseas. 

“Our audience remains steady and [Australian partner] Channel Ten would love the show to continue if we could find another broadcast partner to replace [Channel 5],” he said, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

“These discussions are ongoing, however, there is no new broadcaster at the moment and production must end, effectively resting the show.

“We are so proud of the show, you all and everything that you’ve achieved. But for now, this chapter is closing and we want to work together to give Neighbours the amazing send-off it deserves.”
