Cash starts to worry.
Home and Away spoilers follow from Monday’s Australian episode (July 25), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has addressed Jasmine Delaney’s ongoing absence from Summer Bay.
Jasmine recently rushed out of town after hearing that Wendy Shaw, the mother of her late husband Robbo, had suffered a heart attack. She decided to help out the Shaws on the family farm until further notice.
This storyline was initially written in after Sam Frost announced plans to take a break from her role as Jasmine, although Sam later confirmed that her departure would be permanent.
In Monday’s episode on Channel 7 in Australia, Jasmine was repeatedly referenced as her partner Cash Newman awaited her return.
Cash was excited over the news that Jasmine was supposedly coming back to the Bay and he confided in her brother Xander Delaney about his plans to propose to her.
After preparing a romantic dinner, purchasing an engagement ring and bringing home some champagne, Cash eagerly awaited Jasmine’s arrival.
However, when Jasmine was late without explanation, Cash left her a worried voicemail to find out what was going on.
Are we about to finally get an on-screen reason over why Jasmine won’t be returning to the Bay?
Sam Frost announced last year that she’d be taking a break from Home and Away, giving her time to receive COVID vaccinations. All cast at Home and Away are obliged to be vaccinated due to a rule implemented at the start of the year.
In a change of plans, Sam later announced that her departure would be permanent.
A spokesperson for Channel 7 said in a statement sent to Insertions.us: “We support and respect Sam’s decision to leave Home and Away. Sam leaves with our sincere thanks and very best wishes for the future.”
Show insiders suggested that Sam’s exit was not related to the previous vaccination discussions.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm 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.
