Home and Away spoilers follow from this week's Australian-pace episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away star Kestie Morassi has confirmed that she will be exiting the soap, as Maggie and Ben Astoni prepare to leave Summer Bay.
Morassi, who has played Maggie for three years, told New Idea that she was going to miss being on the show.
"I expected it to be wonderful and exciting, but I didn't expect to fall so deeply in love with the people I worked with. I can't tell you the joy this job has brought me," she commented.
And speaking about Maggie and Ben's future together, the star said: "I like to believe Maggie and Ben are going to be able to work through any issues they have and grow old together.
"It's what they've always imagined for their future."
Morassi didn't say whether or not she would consider going back to Summer Bay one day, but confirmed that the door is open for a possible return.
"We drive off into the sunset," she said. "[The writers] seem to leave it very open, which is nice."
Co-star Bree Peters left the soap earlier this month, as her character Gemma Parata headed back to New Zealand to scatter the ashes of her late husband Mikaere.
Home and Away airs on weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
