Home and Away star's ominous warning to fans: 'Someone will die'

There have been plenty of rumours about which character will be leaving Summer Bay for good.

Home and Away’s Matt Evans has revealed that a beloved character on the long-running soap opera is about to be killed off. The 26-year-old actor and singer-songwriter, who first gained popularity as a contestant on The Voice in 2019, dropped the huge bombshell live on The Morning Show on Friday.

“All I can say is next week a stranger will come into the Bay and someone will die,” he said ominously while looking straight into the camera, leaving hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies spooked.

While he didn’t reveal which character will be leaving Summer Bay, there have already been a number of clues and theories shared in various fan pages on social media.

Leaked footage from a tense scene shot in Palm Beach in December 2023 showed Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) holding a brunette woman who is severely hurt and shouting: “She’s been shot! Somebody call an ambulance!”

As the series shoots approximately five to six months in advance, this storyline is likely coming up soon.


Recent storylines have focussed on Cash working as a bodyguard for famous Hollywood actress Stevie Marlow (Catherine Văn-Davies) as she’s been stalked by a deranged fan, so a majority of viewers are convinced that she’s the character who will killed off.

Meanwhile, others have guessed that Cash’s girlfriend Eden Fowler (Stephanie Panozzo) could be the shooting victim.

Matt’s huge teaser comes shortly after Yahoo Lifestyle reported on the rumours that Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) is leaving the show, which still seems extremely likely.

The star hasn’t been spotted filming on set lately, with a security guard telling fans she had “stopped filming and now is overseas”.


“I know someone went to Palm Beach today and was told that she’s overseas and not sure if [she’s] coming back, indicating that she’s leaving [or] left the show and no longer filming,” a fan said earlier this month.

“Her contract was up, and we don’t know if she was offered another one. She probably didn’t want to sign another one as she’s been doing other films.”
