Let’s be real – if the lives and loves of Summer Bay’s residents existed in real life, we’d have long given up on keeping stock of who’s dating who.

Seriously, Home and Away is full of make-ups and break-ups. So much so that if it were real, we’d all be certified wrecks. Or just robots. Because no one could possibly have the emotional capacity to deal with some of the wild, yet traumatic scenarios narrated around those poor Aussie souls.

That being said, they do say art imitates life for a reason – and Home and Away is exhibit A, B and C.

Over the years, we’ve seen on-screen loves turn into real-life loves – and in most cases, it seems their IRL romance features a lot less drama in comparison to their characters.

What’s more, a number of the actors who’ve hooked up in the real world are ridiculously cute.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll also be familiar with the thrill of witnessing an adorable new Summer Bay pairing make it work against whatever devilry the script writers threw at them.

But even better than that was realising that said adorable new couple are actually dating off camera.

That’s why we decided to pin-point them all in one place.

In what we can only describe as a match made in pure, undisputed heaven, Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor, who play Ziggy and Dean went sort of Instagram offish earlier in 2019.

The pair’s on-screen characters are also dating on the show, and they’re ridiculously cute together. Here for this!

Home and Away‘s glorious young couple Hayley and Noah melted our hearts on-screen, but actors Beau Brady and Bec Hewitt’s off-screen relationship unfortunately came to an end in 2004.

We all know what happened next – the blonde actress is now happily married to Aussie tennis legend Lleyton Hewitt. Guess there’s always a happily ever after…

Glorious Summer Bay couple James Stewart and Sarah Roberts are not only dating, but they’re married IRL. Their characters, Justin and Willow also had a whirlwind romance on the show – but we reckon their real-life relationship is a little less dramatic.

Sarah has recently left Home & Away, while James remains on the Summer Bay shores.

James also dated co-star Isabella Giovinazzo, who played passionate songstress Phoebe on the show. Calling It Quits in 2017, James moved on with Sarah, while Isabella continued to kill it on-screen, starring in popular drama Playing for Keeps.

If you watched Home & Away in 2006, you’ll undoubtedly have been utterly thrilled to know the actors who played Maddie (Indiana Evans) and Lucas (Rhys Wakefield) were reportedly together IRL.

Seriously, this OG couple were the Ryan and Marissa of Aussie television. Those were the days!

Lincoln Lewis and Indiana Evans dated for several months before calling it quits in 2008. Lincoln depicted the charming, yet slightly lost soul of Geoff on the hit show, while Indiana’s character Maddie was an absolute sweetheart. They’d have made a cute on-screen couple, too!

Lincoln definitely owes Home & Away for a few of his past loves. He was also romantically linked to co-star Rhiannon Fish, who played April on the show. The pair split in 2012.

In what might be one of our favourite romances from the entire show, Debra Lawrance and Dennis Coard who played Pippa and Michael on the show back in its early days have been happily married for more than 20 years. Too. Damn. Cute.

Axle Whitehead and Samara Weaving played Liam and Indie on the Aussie soap, and reportedly dated off-screen back in 2012.

It didn’t last long between the pair, who’ve both moved onto bigger and better things – Samara has appeared in several recent Hollywood blockbusters, while Axle is pursuing a musical career.

Back in the day, Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas, who played Kim and Tasha on the show, were the real deal.

You’ll probably be familiar with the fact that they didn’t last – Chris is now happily married to stunning Spanish actress Elsa Pataky with whom he shares three adorable kids with.

Isabel is also keeping busy in the film industry, and still works a red carpet like no other.
