If you've watched Australia's 'Home and Away' soap since the early 90s, you'll be sad to hear that one of the longest-serving actors is leaving the show "indefinitely".

Irene Roberts, who is played by Lynne McGranger, will be leaving Summer Bay for good after being on the show since 1993.

Lynne McGranger told TV Week: "Irene needs to get away. Summer Bay isn't holding anything for her anymore, so there's a chance she may never come back."

The news will reportedly be revealed on the show to Ana Nicodemou's character Leah during a business conversation at the diner.
