She’s one of Home and Away‘s hottest young stars, but Olivia Deeble is also cementing her reputation as Summer Bay’s most accident prone resident!

The Melbourne-born beauty – who plays Raffy Morrison on the long-running Channel 7 favourite – took to Instagram on January 28 to share a stunning shot leaning against the pier at Red Leaf Beach in Sydney.

STRAIGHT after this photo I fell in the water….And there was a shark hazard,” Olivia, 16, captioned the post along with the hashtag #ilivedtotellthetale.

While Olivia was poking fun at herself with this post, it’s been a dramatic few months for the up and coming actress.

In September, she revealed she had suffered brain swelling after sustaining a concussion from a fall where she hit her head.

The injury was so severe Olivia was hospitalised a number of times, and she later admitted she was sleeping about “12 hours a day”.

Thankfully the talented youngster went on to make a full recovery, even good-naturedly poking fun at her mother who she thanked for “taking for photos of me passed out”.

Olivia has been spotted out and about across Sydney enjoying the summer sun in recent weeks, including an outing to Clovelly Beach on January 19 where she soaked up some rays with friends in a quirky mismatched bikini.
