Calling her “one of my best friends”, Johnny gushed: “Lynne, you’re like a fine wine,” to which she replied: “Aww sweetheart. So, so happy to see you, darling.”

Ada Nicodemou, who’s worked with Lynne for over 20 years, also shared some happy snaps from the party, writing: “Had a fabulous afternoon celebrating my beautiful friend.”

“With something like Home and Away, you don’t want to look like s**t nor, conversely, do you want to look so fabulous that when people see you in real life, they go ‘what the hell,’” she once said. “I know I look older on-screen and that’s OK because it’s fitting with the character.”

Also at the party were Lynne’s long-time partner Paul McWaters, as well as their daughter Clancy and her fiancé Luke Dickson.

The young couple’s wedding is the family’s next milestone, with Lynne saying she cannot wait for her little girl’s big day.
