The character, who is played by Akos Armont, entered the bay last month, being introduced as Mackenzie Booth’s ex-fiancé.

After he hits his head on a surfboard, Gabe checks himself into hospital to test for any signs of concussion, but the results reveal something far more serious.

He confides to doctor Bree Cameron that he had been treated for non-Hodgkin lymphoma prior to arrival in Summer Bay, revealing that he thought he was in remission.

Juliet Goodwin, who plays Bree on the soap, spoke about the shocking developments, telling TV Week: “Bree is extremely sad for Gabe because, as a doctor, she’s fully aware of the challenges a battle with cancer holds. She wants Gabe to reach out to his loved ones so he can get the support he needs.”

Elsewhere on the soap, Theo Poulos is attempting to deal with the darker side of fame after a fan begins to stalk him. Actor Matt Evans revealed that the storyline holds great significance for him, as he has occasionally struggled to acclimatise to the heightened exposure.

“It was such a foreign feeling and I had to navigate my way around what this new thing was,” he said. “When I got the storyline, I was like, 'You know what, I've been here'.

“Granted, I've never had a stalker, but the fan culture was something that I've definitely experienced,” he explained. “I've had to block one person online just because they had so many different accounts and they kept inboxing my friends and other people.”

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.
