Courtney Miller bows out from the soap.
Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Home and Away airs Bella Nixon’s final scenes on UK screens next week.
Bella waves goodbye to Summer Bay after receiving an exciting offer to go and work in New York.
In upcoming scenes on Channel 5, Bella hopes to convince her boyfriend Nikau Parata to join her when she travels to the US to help Emmett Ellison with a three-month project.
Nikau gently breaks the news to Bella that he won’t be going, as he doesn’t want to give up his new position as a paid lifeguard at the beach.
Bella is thrown into turmoil following Nikau’s decision, not wanting to make the move if he doesn’t come with her.
Nikau, Mackenzie Booth and Dean Thompson all unite to convince Bella to change her mind, urging her not to pass up such a lucrative opportunity.
In the end, Bella agrees to go to New York and maintain a long-distance relationship with Nikau while she’s away.
Emmett is grateful to Nikau for being so selfless and not standing in Bella’s way.
Later, Mackenzie hosts an intimate farewell gathering for Bella, with those closest to her in attendance.
Bella proposes a toast to all the people who made Summer Bay home for her. She feels secure going to New York knowing that she has a safe place to come back to.
While Bella intends to return to the Bay, there may be a twist to the tale in the long-run as Courtney Miller – who played her – has confirmed that these are her final scenes.
When her exit aired in Australia last month, Courtney wrote on Instagram: “To the time of my life. Thank-you @homeandaway. Forever & always your Bella.”
Home and Away airs these scenes on Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13 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.
