Sam Frost has made a subtle dig at her former employer after announcing she was quitting her role in Home and Away a little over a month ago.

With all her scenes as Jasmine Delaney filmed back in December, former Bachelorette Sam appears to have put her four-year stint on the long-running TV soap behind her.

On Friday, the 32-year-old — who joined Home and Away as nurse Jasmine in 2017 — shared an Instagram post by the satirical news site, The Betoota Advocate that poked fun at the program's dramatic storylines.

The faux-headline quipped, "Home and Away writer fired for not reaching one car crash scene per season quota."

The fictional beachside town of Summer Bay does indeed have an unusually high rate of car crashes, explosions and other disasters, particularly when it nears a season finale.

And with almost 400 episodes under her belt, Sam has been involved in several far-fetched plotlines herself — her character Jasmine was involved in a car crash in her very first episode, after all.

The humour wasn't lost on Sam, who wrote, "The caption really made me giggle," when she shared the post to her Instagram Stories.

It comes after an insider revealed that Sam hopes to move from Sydney, where Home and Away is filmed, back to Melbourne so she can be with her family.

“Those around her believe she’s going to throw in the towel with acting,” the source said.

“Sam sort of fell into it ... it’s not a massive passion.”

The insider said Sam will instead focus on her work in the “health and wellbeing” industry. Shortly after her departure from the soap was announced, Sam revealed she'd written a book about her 'personal experience' with mental health titled, Believe.

"This is my story. One I feel very proud to share. It’s about finding strength, courage, resilience and hope while learning life’s big lessons along the way."

Back in 2015, she became the founder and director of the mental health initiative, 'Believe by Sam Frost'.

After sparking controversy with a video about the Covid vaccine, Sam announced she would be taking a break from TV, explaining that she would be written out 'temporarily' until after a 'medical procedure' in January.

But on December 16, a network spokesperson confirmed that she had quit for good. Sam is believed to have filmed her final scenes as Jasmine the following day, however, it's not clear how she has been written out and when her final episodes with go to air.

'Don't want to get vaccinated'

Back in October, Sam made headlines over her controversial Covid-19 vaccination stance which she revealed in a tearful Instagram video.

In the since-deleted clip, Sam admitted that she was not vaccinated and spoke about feeling like "less of a human" due to "harsh judgment" from society in the lead-up to NSW's 'Freedom Day'.

She described the treatment of unvaccinated people, particularly when it came to the state's ongoing restrictions, as "segregation".

"I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it's getting to a point now in the world where there is a lot of segregation," she began.

“There’s a lot of harsh judgement and opinions being thrown around a lot and it's taking its toll on my mental health for sure, and I know people around me are struggling, particularly if they're on the side that they don't want to get vaccinated for whatever reason," she continued.

Sam explained that she had spoken to her doctor and her psychologist when deciding to forgo the jab but kept her reasons private.

“It's a really hard time to be in society right now and you feel like you’re less of a human and you feel like people judge you,” she said.

“And you're too scared to talk about your opinion or talk about your feelings, and part of you wants to go, ‘Well it’s none of your damn business why I’m not!’.

“It's going to be a really hard time when vaccinated people are allowed out to do things and go to restaurants because I've made a choice.”
