Similar to that of her Home And Away alter ego, Irene, Lynne McGranger gets straight to the point on important matters.

And Sydney’s latest lockdown is no exception.

The 68-year-old shared a poster she came across to her Instagram that perfectly summed up her feelings on the matter.

“We’re one d**khead away from disaster,” the sign reads to which Lynne then echoed in her caption: “Please don’t be a d**khead.”

With the state recording the highest number of daily cases since the outbreak first hit our shores last year, Greater Sydney has been plunged into one of its strictest lockdowns to date.

And Summer Bay, be it a fictional town, hasn’t been immune.

The cast and crew have halted production of the show in adherence with restrictions.

Home & Away is filmed at Sydney’s Palm Beach as well as a studio in Redfern. And this isn’t the first time filming has been interrupted by COVID.

Last year, the cast and crew were forced to make alternate arrangements during the height of the pandemic.

Speaking to the BBC in June 2020, the series’ producer, Lucy Addario, explained their team had to take a break from Palm Beach due to social distancing.

“To be honest we actually haven’t been back to Palm Beach yet, there’s still some restrictions on the amount of people in public places,” Lucy told the publication.

Sharing a close-up selfie, Sam broke the announcement to her followers, writing “Bad news: We’re going into full lockdown”.

As optimistic as ever, the 32-year-old looked on the bright side of the unfortunate development, adding, “Good news: Welcome back #SamsIsoDiary… there’s always a silver lining guys”.

The silver lining for fans has indeed been keeping up with the cast in lockdown whether it be Sam’s iso-diary, Penny McNamee writing songs or just the everyday shenanigans of their co-stars, you can see a round up here.
