Home and Away fans were thrilled on Thursday when two stars of the long-running soap had a surprise reunion outside of Summer Bay.

Lynne McGranger, who plays beloved character Irene Roberts, was joined by former cast member Nic Westaway at a book signing event for her new autobiography in Sydney.

Nic joined the Channel 7 show in 2012 as 'River Boy' Kyle Braxton, earning him a solid fanbase as the Bay's resident 'crazy bad boy'.

Unlike his troubled character, Nic was all smiles while supporting his friend Lynne, 68, as she signed copies of her book, Acting Up: Me, Myself & Irene at Dymocks.

Lynne posted a sweet snap of the pair on her Instagram account, calling Nic a 'gorgeous fella' and thanking him for stopping by.

"Fancy running into this gorgeous fella who popped in to see me at my book signing in @dymockssydney today," she wrote in the caption.

"Lovely to see you @nicwestaway," she added.

Lynne's followers got a kick out of the pic, with one writing in the comments, "Two Home and Away legends right there".

Another shared that they were 'loving' reading Acting Up, which pulls back the curtain on Lynne's life off-screen.

"Just started reading your book and so far I'm absolutely loving it," the fan gushed.

Nic, 32, also shared the same photo on his account and was similarly full of praise for his 'amazing' former co-star in the caption.

"So wonderful to see this amazing woman! Such a beautiful soul," he wrote.

"Can’t wait to have a read of her book! Grab a copy for yourself or a loved one for Christmas," he added.

He also shared a candid snap of him giving Lynne a big hug on his Instagram Stories.

Nic's followers were equally delighted to see the duo back together, with one writing, "Reunited. Fantastic shot mate".

Others were keen to see Nic make a return to Summer Bay, five years after he left.

"You should come back to Home and Away for just a brief visit," one fan urged.

"Nice to see you Nic, miss you as Kyle Braxton," another added.

Soap star's 'scandalous' memoir

Lynne has had no shortage of support from her famous friends when it comes to promoting her 'scandalous' memoir, which was released back in November.

Ada Nicodemou, who plays Leah on Home And Away, featured the book as part of the Instagram book club she hosts with Lynne.

And former cast member Johnny Ruffo, who is battling cancer for the second time, has given Acting Up the thumbs up in his own Instagram post.

The book is filled with surprising revelations about Lynne's life behind the scenes, such as her past drug use and eating disorder struggles.
