Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian episodes, which UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has aired Logan Bennett’s final scenes on Australian screens this week.
Harley Bonner, who played Logan, left the soap at the end of 2021 but has remained on screen as Home and Away films its scenes six months in advance of broadcast.
This week’s episodes in Australia, which will air in the UK on Channel 5 next month, saw Logan head out of Summer Bay after a difficult time.
Logan’s recent storylines had seen him split from his girlfriend Mackenzie Booth after discovering that she’d held illegal poker nights at Salt behind his back, leading to a nightmare situation with sleazy PK.
The local doctor also came close to facing serious punishment for causing death by dangerous driving, after the finger of blame was wrongly pointed at him over a fatal car crash.
Clearly overwhelmed, Logan made the decision to resign from his job at the Northern Districts Hospital and re-enrol in the army’s medical team instead.
Mackenzie, who’d hoped to reunite with Logan, later discovered that he’d left without saying goodbye to her.
In a voicemail that could be heard on screen, Logan told Mac: “I’m sorry I didn’t let you know I was leaving. But to be honest, I didn’t know myself until I was on my way.
“Anyway, I’m alright, I promise. I just can’t be there anymore. I’m going back into the army, if they’ll have me. You’re an amazing woman, Mac. Be happy, okay?”
Home and Away bosses announced in December last year that Harley Bonner would not return to filming in 2022.
Show chiefs opted not to recast the character of Logan.
A spokesperson explained at the time: “Channel Seven can confirm Harley will not return to Home and Away when filming resumes in the coming weeks. Harley leaves with our best wishes and sincere thanks for his work on the show.”
Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in July.
Sam Frost, who played Jasmine Delaney, is also expected to leave imminently on Australian screens as she departed the show at a similar time to Harley.
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.
