Home and Away spoilers follow from recent Australian episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

One of Home and Away's newest recruits has already bid farewell to Summer Bay, with recent scenes airing in Australia revealing the sudden death of Rachel Young.

Rachel, played by Marny Kennedy, was killed off in yesterday's (June 24) Australian episode, just moments after she'd been released from hospital after weeks of treatment from Christian Green.

After overcoming her dramatic skydiving accident, Rachel was tragically killed after being run over by a hit-and-run driver in a freak accident. Despite Christian's best efforts, she failed to respond to CPR and sadly died.

Opening up about shooting her final scenes, Marny told Home and Away fans that she'd had "an amazing day" filming the stunt alongside her stunt double Mel Eckert.

In an Instagram video shared by Home and Away, the actress revealed: "The last segment for Rachel's journey, we had a big stunt day out on location. I had an amazing stunt double, Mel Eckert, and she was incredible.

"Dean Gould, who's one of the stunt coordinators, I worked with when I was about 14 years old. We worked on a few jobs together, so it was actually amazing. He sort of rocks up and goes, 'Right, we're hitting you with a car today?' I went, 'Hey Dean, good to see you too.'"

Despite her short stint in Summer Bay, Marny seemed happy with her character's exit. "It was an amazing day, you know," she added.

"I love any opportunity to do stuff like that, stunt days and that sort of thing, but it's great when you see old mates from around the traps as well."

Fans will have to wait and see how Rachel's accident affects Christian, who came to terms with surviving Lewis' murder attempt by believing he was meant to save Rachel at the airfield.

Unable to save Rachel a second time, the question remains, will Christian be okay?

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.
