Home and Away

Home and Away airs abrupt exit story for Jasmine Delaney

Sam Frost bows out from the soap.

Home and Away spoilers follow from Thursday’s Australian episodes (June 9), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

Home and Away has aired Jasmine Delaney’s final scenes on Australian screens.

Sam Frost, who played the role of Jasmine, left the cast in December 2021 but has remained on screen as the soap films its scenes six months in advance of broadcast.

Thursday’s triple bill of episodes in Australia saw Jasmine make her final appearance.

In a scene with Alf Stewart and Marilyn Chambers, Jasmine broke some news about the family of her late husband Robbo Shaw.

Robbo’s mother Wendy had suffered a heart attack, so Jasmine decided to head out to the Shaws’ farm to help out for a while.

Jasmine also shared her plans with her sister Rose Delaney, admitting her disappointment that she was leaving just when they were getting to know each other.

The timing was awkward for Rose, as she’d just spent the night in a car with Jasmine’s boyfriend Cash Newman after they’d got drunk together. Cash hadn’t wanted to return home drunk to Jasmine.

Although nothing happened between the pair, Rose still felt guilty for how it could have been construed. Things became particularly awkward when an oblivious Jasmine asked Rose to keep an eye on Cash while she was away.

Jasmine also shared a goodbye with Cash, telling him how lucky she was that she’d found him. She did not get a farewell scene with her brother Xander.

Once Jasmine had left, Cash reassured Rose that he didn’t say anything about their secret.

Although Rose now wanted to be honest, Cash insisted that their confession could wait until Jasmine got back from the farm.

In reality, there are no known plans for the character of Jasmine to return to Home and Away.

Sam announced plans to take a break from the show last year, 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.
