Home and Away fans react to Wikipedia ‘spoiler’ about fan favourite

Home and Away fans were shocked to discover a 'spoiler' on Wikipedia, which appears to show a fan favourite character may be set to leave Summer Bay this year.

A social media user shared the news in a Facebook group for the long-running soap, posting a screenshot from Wikipedia which claims that Ada Nicodemou, aka Leah Patterson, is exiting the show in 2021.

“I think Leah will leave the show or something happens to her because it says on here this year she’s finished on Home and Away,” they posted alongside a Wikipedia screenshot.

The website lists each of the characters currently present on the show, as well as their actor and duration, with Ada’s reading ‘2000-2021’.


A number of fans took to the comments to share their thoughts on the post, with the majority hoping that it isn’t true.

“I hope not but anything can happen,” one person wrote. “Look what happened to Tori Morgan.”

“The Bay will miss her so much,” someone else shared, while another added, “Justin has had so much bad luck, he needs to be happy.”

“Hate to say it but I heard Leah has a new gig on Neighbours,” a fourth commented.

Other users debunked the rumour by pointing out that Ada only recently renewed her contract with the show.

The actress confirmed the news to New Idea back in June, saying that she’s not going anywhere any time soon.

“I love television, and I love stability. And it's afforded me a great life. It's meant that I have been here, in this country, and at home as much as I can with Johnas,” she said when asked about working on another series.

“I just think, for me, it'd be too hard hustling all the time for different roles and being out of work. And I don't love acting that much; I love working.”

Since the Facebook post was shared over the weekend, the Wikipedia page has been edited to say that Ada’s character is ongoing.

The rumours come shortly after Channel Seven released a statement in regards to fellow Home and Away actress Sam Frost’s video where she revealed she is unvaccinated against Covid-19.

“Seven strongly encourages vaccination for all our people and all Seven productions strictly adhere to the public health Covid-19 safe protocols,” a Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail.

“All Home and Away cast and crew also undertake Covid-19 testing three times a week in addition to other preventative measures.”

The network confirmed that Sam continues to work on the popular soap and “follows the safety protocols in place”.
