Needless to say, it was a day of filming that Patrick will never forget.
“Going on a super-yacht on a beautiful day was amazing,” he says. “It was something really special.”
Off-screen, Home and Away fans around the world have been in an uproar over the past few days, amid bizarre rumours that the mega-popular Australian drama is headed for the chop.
Now New Idea can exclusively confirm the rumours are categorically untrue, with a Seven Network spokesperson telling us: ‘These reports are complete rubbish’.

The fictional axing allegations appear to have their roots in very different claims by TV industry gossip blog TV Blackbox, which speculated there might be changes ahead in the way the show is delivered, including suggestions that future episodes may first be first shown on streaming, or via a digital channel.

Still one of Australia’s highest rated dramas, Home and Away, which famously stars Ray Meagher as Alf Stewart, is also shown around the world, with a particularly huge following in the UK - where it is shown on Channel 5.
So, if you’re in any doubt, here is it one more time: Home and Away is definitely NOT getting axed.
To see how it all unravels, tune in tonight, 7pm on Channel 7.
