Elsewhere, Felicity Newman actress Jacqui Purvis recently confessed that she'd auditioned for a separate role on Home and Away a number of years ago – that of Mackenzie Booth.

"So thankful" that she landed Flick instead, she told Stuff: "Flick is just such a dream come true as a character. She's so much fun.

"I get to transition from vulnerable and sensitive with my family issues and mental health to the fun side, which is that she is a little pocket rocket who has no filter.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK), with first look screenings at 6.30pm on 5STAR. Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
