After the wave of high profile departures the Bay has seen over the last few months, fans will be relieved to know 5 newcomers have began to settle into the Bay (or are on their way soon).
Actors Tessa James, Esther Anderson and Jordan Rodrigues have set their sights in Summer Bay over the last few weeks as Nicole Franklin, Charlie Buckton and Jai Fernandez respectively, with Rebecca Breeds and Paul Pantano set to move onto Australian screens over the coming weeks.
Breeds has joined the cast as Ruby Buckton, the sister of Charlie and daughter of Ross, who has tagged along to the Bay on a whim to follow her family and sends the locals into a spin on her first day in town. Pantano joins as the mysterious Elliot, who has links to Roman's SAS past and wastes no time in hooking up with someone close to the ex-soldier's heart.
Add to that the return of Christie Hayes and the promotion to regular of Celeste Dowdell it seems like the Bay will once more be a hive of activity.
